RCB vs MI: IPL 2021: Match Prediction
Both RCB and MI have faltered in the second phase of the IPL 2021, losing two matches in a row. But MI might just have a slight edge in this contest as they looked a more sorted unit and are dangerous when pushed to a corner. Their batting line up is strong. RCB is struggling with their middle order. Considering this factor, we expect that Mumbai Indians will win the match.
