[NWSL: Week 5] The U.S. and Canadian national team players will be returning after having played Thursday night in Winnipeg, and both teams will be missing players because of injuries or overseas commitments, but Saturday's Portland-Seattle match is the biggest of the NWSL season, a battle of unbeaten teams. The Reign, perfect in five games, can nonetheless open a 10-point lead on the second-place Timbers with a win.

Portland will again be without Alex Morgan and Rachel Van Hollebeke, who are recuperating from injuries, while Tobin Heath (Paris St. Germain), Veronica Boquete (Tyreso) and Stephanie Catley (Australian national team) won’t join the team until later in the season. The Reign is 5-0-0 despite being without Megan Rapinoe, who has missed the last three games with a foot injury.

In their places, other players have stepped up. Scottish international Kim Little leads the Reign in scoring with four goals in her first NWSL season. Ally Long, who made her international debut for the USA against Canada Thursday night, and Jessica McDonald share all six Portland goals.
