Match 45 of the ongoing ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament sees Men in Blue CC up against Pak Montcada CC in a Group B fixture. While the Men in Blue are coming into this game on the back of two defeats, Pak Montcada CC have won two games on the bounce.
Men in Blue CC haven't been able to put in consistent performances in the ECS this season. They have won just one game while losing three. Currently fifth in the points table, they have no chance of making it to the semi-finals even if they win all their remaining games. However, Prasanna Jathan and his men would hope to end the season on a high.
On the other hand, Pak Montcada CC have all to play for. They are third in the ECS Group B points table with six points in their kitty. If they win their three remaining games, they'll reach a maximum of 12 points . That could give them an excellent chance of making it to the playoffs, considering their superb net run rate of +3.723.
