As of now the two teams are placed second and third in the table, and are separated by just three points. Which means this upcoming encounter is nothing but a virtual final, which will decide the fate of both teams for the upcoming season.

The two have been scoring in plenty all through the campaign, and they have also shown immense ability to wade through clutch moments. Moreover, majority of head-to-head fixtures over the years also had goals in huge numbers.

As things stand, expect a high-scoring affair between the two.
