To understand what can happen in this upcoming match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans. 

Both teams journey so far: IPL 2024

This season is a total nightmare for RCB. This is not what an RCB fan expects from their favorite team. RCB lost a lot of matches and now they are on the verge of getting disqualified for the playoffs. The team looks unorganized and in every match, they look scattered. However, in the last match against the same team Gujarat, RCB was able to claim the win. 

In this season the only player from RCB who performed well is Virat Kohli. In fact he is the number one player in this IPL and he has held an orange cap. They have played 10 matches till date and in this they have lost 7 matches and won only 3 matches. For qualification only hope with the team is to win the other remaining 4 matches. Still, it's hard for the team to qualify as they have looked at other teams' performances. So this is a must-win match for RCB. 

Gujarat titans

Gujarat Titans' journey in the last two seasons was super. This season is not a good season for them. The 2022 IPL champion and 2023 finalists are now settled in 7th position in points table. They have roller coaster journeys this season. They have played 10 matches and won 4 and lost 6 matches. Even in the last match against the same RCB, they lost the match. To be eligible to qualify for playoffs they have to win this upcoming match. So Gujarat Titans will try their best and perform their best to win this match against RCB. This will keep their hope alive to be in the race of playoffs. So all and all this is a must-win for Gujarat.
