The winner of this match will face Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the loser of Qualifier 1 . For both Royal Challengers and the Royals, the next game would be a distant thought as first they have to outdo each other in one of the fiercest contests of this summer with both teams boasting of immense firepower.

Speaking of batting, it came to the forefront for both teams in their last encounters of the league stage where the Royals had the better of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and RCB blasted away a formidable challenge from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The last game for the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers against the Delhi Daredevils was a washout. Also Read- Results of all RCB vs RR matches played in IPL so far.

RR will look to do a repeat of the inaugural edition where they clinched the title when most experts had written them off while RCB will look to holding aloft the trophy for the first time. It is hard to separate the two outfits from their head-to-head encounters with each side pocketing seven of the 15 clashes between them. (With inputs from IANS).
