The clash on Saturday afternoon will see the two sides meet for the first time since last season’s USL Cup Playoffs Knockout Round match at Zions Bank Stadium. A match that Monarchs fans and 1868 FC fans look upon differently, Saturday’s contest could be one of possible significance for the remainder of the 2019 season. In the last season’s USL Cup Playoffs, Reno claimed a last-gasp victory over the Monarchs in stoppage time to move further into the playoffs.
The Monarchs are coming off of its first defeat of the 2019 regular season. The Monarchs visited Las Vegas Lights FC last weekend that saw a tense affair end 1-0 in favor of Lights FC. Prior to its match at Las Vegas, the Monarchs claimed an emphatic 5-0 victory over LA Galaxy II in its most recent outing at Zions Bank Stadium.
