NWSL: Final two playoff berths to be decided on final weekend

Four of the six berths in the 2022 NWSL playoffs have been claimed.

Four teams are still alive in the battle for the final two berths that will be decided on final weekend of play. There is no decision day, like in MLS. The final six games will be decided over three days.

One of the two berths will be claimed on Friday by the North Carolina Courage, the 2022 Challenge Cup winner, if it beats San Diego at Snapdragon Stadium.

If it doesn't win, the playoff race will go down to the final game when Chicago hosts Angel City FC. The Red Stars and ACFC both sit below the playoff line but are still alive.
