If there is a team that has dominated its opponents through sheer physical strength then it’s the Bengal Warriors. Maninder Singh, K Prapanjan, and Sukesh Hegde have raided with scant regard for the defenders. In fact, there are many times when Maninder Singh seems to barrel through one or two defenders carrying them to the other side.
It will be interesting to see if he can do the same against Fazel Atrachali, Sandeep Narwal, and Surinder Singh.
The three raiders, as well as the all-round brilliance of Mohammad Nabibakhsh, gives the Bengal Warriors the better offense by far.
Baldev Singh and Rinku Narwal are going to be leading the defense for the Warriors and they have been in pretty good form as well. The Bengal Warriors defense is susceptible to errors and break-downs but U Mumba may not have the offense to take advantage.
A brilliant performance in the Eliminator against the Haryana Steelers has given U Mumba a lot of momentum coming into this match. How are they going to cope with the bruising lineup of the Bengal Warriors?
We are certain that they are not going to be taking a step back and in fact, we may see defenders like Sandeep Narwal and Fazel Atrachali come hard at the Bengal Warriors raiders.
While U Mumba may be able to match the Bengal Warriors in terms of physical strength, its raiders are nowhere near the same class. Abhishek Singh will have to play out of his skin to be able to get the better of the Bengal Warriors defense.
The game could be decided by the performance of the U Mumba defense against the Bengal Warriors offense.
Maninder Singh has over 200 raid points to his name and is in brilliant form while Fazel Atrachalai is leading the tackle points tally with 81 points. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? We will find out.
We think that the Bengal Warriors have the depth in their offense to be able to win this match. It is going to be tough against the U Mumba defense but they have enough raiders to keep coming hard at them until the defense breaks down.
Bet on the Bengal Warriors to win.
