IPL 2019, RCB vs RR Today's Game Preview: Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Rajasthan Royals in the 49th battle of IPL 2019 on Tuesday in what will be a final showdown. The RCB is at the bottom of the points table with eight points in 12 games, while the RR is in seventh with 10 points in the same number of games.
Qualifying hopes for the playoffs hung by a thread for both sides and Tuesday's clash are an opportunity for either side to spoil the opponent's party.
Both RCB and RR need to win the remaining two games and expect the Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals to have the best of their opponents to have any chance of qualifying.
The RR was severely weakened by the loss of English players who left for the World Cup field. Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer left the Rajasthan camp.
But despite the exodus, RR managed to write a mini-revival since Steve Smith became captain. They will enter the game with two straight wins.
Meanwhile, the RCB is also in good shape, having won three of the last four games. However, they lost their last game against DC for 16 races.
In the 20 games played between these two teams, RR won 10 while two games ended with no result.
RR recorded a win of seven wins over RCB in the encounter between the two teams earlier this season.
