FIRST ON THE LINE: The Defiance have ridden a blistering run of form to the top spot in the Western Conference with 37 points from 17 matches, but St. Louis CITY2 are just one point off that pace with a game in hand.

HOME COOKING: Tacoma has been dominant at the friendly confines of Starfire this season, posting a 7-1-1 record on their home turf.

ON A MISSION: With seven games remaining in the regular season, the Defiance are comfortably in the playoff spots in the Western Conference. Tacoma boasts a seven point cushion for the automatic qualification spots that come with a top-four finish. The squad leads MLS NEXT Pro in goals scored (47), assists (30) and boasts the fourth-best defense in the league (19 goals conceded).

VARGAS VIBING: Defiance winger Marlon Vargas is one of the most in-form attackers in MLS NEXT Pro, with all 11 of his goals on the season coming in the last 10 games. He also has four assists.

QUALITY OPPOSITION: St. Louis CITY 2 have been one of the top-performing clubs in MLS NEXT’s inaugural season with several senior players who are expected to feature when the club’s first team kicks off its expansion season in 2023, including former Borussia Dortmund and Swiss national team goalkeeper Roman Bürki.
