Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on each other in the much-anticipated Eliminators on May 25 at the Eden Gardens. It is a do-or-die match and the losing team will be eliminated from the playoffs, thus the name eliminator.

Both Lucknow Super Giants and Royal Challengers have never won an IPL trophy and thus they will be very eager to win the match tonight. Without any further ado, let us get straight into the most important statistics related to the match.

LSG vs RCB: Winning Prediction 

Lucknow Super Giants might have had a better performance throughout the season in the Indian Premier League compared to RCB but Faf du Plessis and his men look hungry for a positive result in IPL 2022. The fans and players are really optimistic about a good result this season after all these years and that will definitely give them an edge over LSG. Moreover, RCB has immense experience of playing in IPL Playoffs, unlike LSG for whom this is the debut season. Also, RCB defeated LSG in the only match that the two sides played against each other. Due to all these reasons, we predict that RCB will register an emphatic win over LSG in the Eliminators.
