Both teams are tied on 10 points from 12 games each, with the Royals a spot above the defending champions in seventh courtesy a superior net run rate.
Aiming for a hattrick of IPL titles, Mumbai have been off the pace since the start of the season, losing seven of their 12 matches so far this season, including four out of five since the restart in the UAE.
Meanwhile, the Rajasthan outfit have had their share of struggles in the desert, losing three out of their five matches. But their two wins came in thrilling fashion, as Kartik Tyagi defended just four runs off his final over to deny Punjab an almost assured win in their first game in the UAE.
The other win came more recently, when fifties from Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dube helped comfortably chase down an imposing 190-run target set by the Chennai Super Kings.
