The Houston Dash (3-1-1, 10 points) and Chicago Red Stars (2-1-2, 8 points) face off in Houston in a matchup between two of the top teams early in the NWSL season. The Dash climbed to the top of the standings after back-to-back wins against the Orlando Pride and Utah Royals FC. Chicago, meanwhile, has consecutive draws with Portland Thorns FC and the North Carolina Courage after a pair of wins in their first three games.

Sam Kerr leads the Red Stars with four goals in 2019, while Houston's leading goalscorer Rachel Daly (three goals) will miss the match after picking up a red card and additional game suspension in her last match.
