CSK expected to dominate again, RCB look for retaliation

While CSK are the dominant ones in the rivalry, as they move in as the clear favorites.

While both the teams have a star-studded side, the only thing missing from their rivalry is consistency from RCB.

Nonetheless, it would be of no surprise if Kohli and his boys manage to turn things around and shock CSK fans.
