Kolkata have been showing consistent form even though they lost the last match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in a last-ball thriller. RCB, on the contrary, are struggling with their bowling while not many batters except Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik have managed to make a great impact.

We believe Kolkata will secure their 5th win in the tournament and cement their position in the 2nd spot on the points table.
