They have managed 3 wins and 4 losses off their 8 matches. It is a must-win game for them as a loss would mean almost curtains for them in the competition. However, a win here would strongly put them in the race to make it to the quarterfinals. Let's take a look at the SOM vs NOR Dream 11 Prediction for this interesting affair.
