BRI vs VIK Dream11 prediction
Britannia CC head into the quarter-final clash as the defending champions of ECS T10 Dresden, which they won on better NRR after last year’s final was abandoned due to heavy rain. On the other hand, FC Viktoria 89 will have nerves heading into the quarter-final clash since they are making their ECS debut in this campaign. Going by big-match experience, Britannia CC will start as favourites against FC Viktoria 89 on Friday.
