Match Prediction 

Kolkata has certainly made a strong statement with a huge win over Bangalore in the last game. They will be looking forward to carrying the winning momentum but would face a stern task in the form of Mumbai. The defending champs are unarguably one of the strongest teams in the competition and are no stranger to such situations. They know how to bounce back from a defeat. Considering the head to head stats and depth within the squads, we bet on Mumbai to win this one.
