Why RCB vs CSK match is very important in context of playoffs?

Today’s IPL match features Royal Challengers Bengaluru against Chennai Super Kings at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Chennai Super Kings, led by Ruturaj Gaikwad, have the upper hand with 14 points and a strong net run rate. They’ve had good success at this venue, losing only once in eight matches against RCB. Royal Challengers Bengaluru, led by Faf du Plessis, have 12 points and need a win to secure their spot in the playoffs. However, rain is expected, and if the match is washed out, CSK will advance to the playoffs automatically. RCB must win by at least 18 runs or chase down the target with around 11 balls to spare to secure their playoff spot.
