(KTXL) — The Sacramento Republic FC will look to get back into the win column Saturday night when the club heads to the desert.
The Republic will make their first and only trip to Arizona this weekend when the club takes on the Phoenix Rising FC.

In the all-time series, the Republic has seven wins while the Rising has taken six victories and the two clubs tied seven times.
Sacramento looks to bounce back after falling 1-0 to Birmingham Legion FC at home on July 16. It was the club’s first loss at home this season.
The Republic enters Saturday’s match with a 8-5-5 record in the United Soccer League. Sacramento is currently in seventh place in the USL Championship Western Conference standings.
The Rising heads into Saturday’s matchup at 7-10-2, which is the third lowest record in the Western Conference.
