AUK vs NK Dream11 Prediction, Super Smash 2019-20, Match 26: Preview, Form Guide, Head to Head, Probable XI, Top Picks & Best Dream11 Team

AUK vs NK Dream11 Prediction: A must-win game awaits the Auckland Aces as they take on their arch-nemesis Northern Knights in their second clash of the season, with the earlier match being witnessing the Knights surface meritorious by a margin of 28-runs.

Auckland Aces are placed at 4th spot in the points table with three wins and as many losses in eight matches played so far. They would require victories in their remaining two matches that too by comprehensive margins in order to seal a spot in the knockouts. Since the Craig Cachopa-led side has won two games in a row, based on their current form they would be the favorites for the much-awaited encounter.

On the other hand, Northern Knights who long lost the race to the eliminators would simply hope to end their league matches on a winning note.

Placed at the bottom of the points table with two wins in eight matches, the concurrent edition of Super Smash turned out to be a disaster for the defending champions who couldn’t muster the results in spite of Anton Devich, Scott Kuggeleijn, Tim Seifert and Ish Sodhi in their armory. It would be interesting to see how these two sides perform in the high-octane game at Eden Park Outer Oval.
