Read this article for IPL match 39 - RCB vs CSK game analysis, RCB vs CSK Dream 11 team prediction, match summary, probable XI and more.

After clinching a morale-boosting win in their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will look to continue with the momentum and keep their slim chances of making it to the play-offs alive when they take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium today.

RCB, languishing at the bottom of the table with just four points from nine games, would be aware of the fact that it won't be easy for them to over the MS Dhoni-led side, even while playing at their home ground and having their star batsman in form.

RCB vs CSK: CSK aim to oust RCB in Bengaluru

Virat Kohli scored his first century of this IPL during RCB's narrow 10-run victory against KKR in their last game and RCB fans would be hoping that the skipper continues with his ruthless batting form against CSK.

RCB, languishing at the bottom of the table with just four points from nine games, would be aware of the fact that it won't be easy for them to win against the MS Dhoni-led side, even while playing at their home ground and having their star batsman in form.

On the other hand, Chennai, who were comfortably beaten by the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the last encounter, would be desperate to make amends in their game.

Regular skipper MS Dhoni had to sit out of the SRH game because of back spasms and in his absence, Suresh Raina had to take up the captaincy role. Dhoni's absence, both while batting and defending a small target of 132, was felt during the SRH game. They would also hope that the 37-year-old is fit for the game and takes on the field.

Chennai, still sitting pretty at the points table with 14 points from nine games, would aim for victory against RCB and confirm their berth in the play-offs.

Another player from the team that you should pick is Yuzvendra Chahal. From the RCB team, these are the only few players who are actually performing well and still give us a glimmer of hope for Kohli's team.

From the CSK team- the contenders from outside, opt for Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Imran Tahir. There’s no explaining Captain Cool’s batting prowess and at the same time, the bowlers have been performing consistently as well. Both the bowlers are at the top of their game and have been taking several wickets in each match. These three players should give your team
