SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — With a postseason berth locked up, the Sacramento Republic FC is looking to break a losing streak with two matches to play in the regular season. 

The Republic FC will welcome the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC to Heart Health Park on Sunday in Sacramento’s second-to-last home match of the season. The Republic FC is currently on a three-match losing streak and has been shut out in those last three matches. 

During their losing streak, the Republic FC has been outscored 0-4, including a couple of 1-0 losses to San Antonio FC on the road and to Phoenix Rising FC at home. 

Sacramento was defeated for the third straight time on Oct. 2 in a 2-0 loss to LA Galaxy II.

Playoff seeding will be on the line Sunday, as the Republic FC is vying for a home playoff match, and the Riverbounds are looking to get into the top four seeds in the United Soccer League Eastern Conference standings. 

Heading into Sunday’s match, the Republic FC is fourth in the Western Conference standings with a 14-11-7 record. The Riverhounds are sixth in the Eastern Conference at 15-9-8 and have been winless over their past four matches going 0-2-2 in that span. 

Sunday’s match will be the second time the two clubs will play with the previous meeting occurring in the Republic FC’s inaugural season in 2014. 

Sunday’s match is scheduled for a 2 p.m. kickoff.
