KXIP are ahead with a 1-0 lead in this season head to head. However as tomorrow’s clash will take place at Rajasthan’s home ground, the hosts seem to have an edge over Punjab. Rajasthan gave a tough fight to Punjab in the previous encounter before getting on knees before KL Rahul.
It will be interesting to watch both the teams coming face to face again within a day’s gap.
As per our RAJ vs PNJ today match prediction, hosts will be favorite.
