The Haryana Steelers have been playing for the last three days straight and will be desperate to avoid their third straight loss. The team was blown away by U Mumba and it will be something that the Steelers will be keen to move past.
It is telling that The Haryana Steelers have scored a total of 79 points but given away 112 points in their three matches already. The team has also conceded 6 all-outs already.
These stats do not make good reading for the team which has to improve in almost all aspects of the game. Monu Goyat, Vikash Khandola, Wazir Singh, and Naveen will have to ensure they can put the Puneri Paltan defense under pressure in this game.
Not only does the team want to win matches but it also wants to improve its point difference if possible. On the defensive side Patrick, Sachin Shingade, and Sunil are going to have to be at their best to keep the opposition raiders at bay.
The Haryana Steelers is lacking a little in depth and needs its senior players to stand up in this game.
Puneri Paltan knows that it has an excellent chance of adding another win to its total today. The Haryana Steelers are struggling to get their balance right and exploiting their defense should not be too difficult.
The biggest threat to the Steelers will be Nitin Tomar, who is having the season of his life. He already has 42 points to his name and has completed 33 successful raids. With 2 super 10’s in the tournament already, Nitin Tomar is going to be the player to watch out for in this contest.
Puneri Paltan has all three of its main players in good form. Nitin Tomar is scoring points with ease while the skipper Girish Maruti Ernak and Sandeep Narwal are putting in the defensive work. Both the players managed to scores 4 tackles each in the last game against a decent Delhi side.
With plenty of other class players like Deepak Kumar Dahiya and More GB in their squad, Puneri Paltan is not going to lack for quality on the mat at any time. A simple head to head shows things in favor of Puneri Paltan but things can turn out different on the mat.
Puneri Paltan has dominated past meetings between itself and the Haryana Steelers. Four previous matches between the two sides have seen Pune win three and Haryana just one game. In all likelihood, Pune is going to be increasing the head to head tally after this game has been completed.
The Haryana Steelers are struggling in Pro Kabaddi 6. They have been losing matches and not being competitive when they should be. Puneri Paltan is one of the best teams in this competition and we believe they should win this match quite comfortably.
Back Puneri Paltan to win.
