The Acers have been in great form as they topped the table with 20 points, progressing to the final after defeating Chennai Smashers 4-3.
     
Mumbai, on the other hand, punched above their weight in the semifinals last night when they edged out title contenders Awadhe Warriors 3-0 who were led by world number 2 Saina Nehwal at the Gachibowli Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad.
     
Delhi had thrashed Mumbai 5-0 when they met at the league stage at the Kanteerava Stadium in Bengaluru. In fact, that was the win which confirmed Delhi's position on top of the Premier Badminton League standings.
     
However, in a format comprising two trump matches, fortunes fluctuated more quickly during the course of the tournament and Delhi know that past results would count little and they will have to bring their best to the table if they have to realize their dream of laying hands on the coveted title.
     
During their last clash, Delhi had won all the three singles and the men's doubles match while Mumbai just won the mixed doubles match in the five-match tie.
