The Jaipur Pink Panthers have been in very good form in their home leg. The side knew it had to win every single one of its match and that allowed it to play with a clear mind. They gave it their best shot against U Mumba but ended up falling short in the end.
For a large part of the match, the Jaipur Pink Panthers held the upper hand. They managed to secure a significant lead with just three minutes left on the clock. What happened afterward was a series of defensive errors as U Mumba made an amazing comeback into the match.
Eventually, it came down to the last raid for Deepak Niwas Hooda who needed two points to win his side the match and ensure they stay alive in the tournament. Strangely, he got one point and seemed overjoyed with the result. Perhaps, he was not aware that a tie was no good for the Jaipur Pink Panthers.
Deepak Niwas Hooda and AJinkya will be the lead raiders for the Jaipur Pink Panthers in this match but they are going to be up against one of the best defensive sides in the Pro Kabaddi League. The defensive unit led by Amit Hooda did a great job in the match before the last one, however, a series of mistakes at the end of the last match showed why the Jaipur Pink Panthers have struggled this season.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants are in an excellent position to press home the advantage and secure the top spot in Zone A. U Mumba will be hoping that the Gujarat Fortunegiants slip up and allow them to get back in the contest because as of now, the Fortunegiants have gained a significant advantage.
Sachin has been one of the best raiders of the Pro Kabaddi League and will be hoping to get back into prime form as the Super Playoffs come close. He, along with Prapanjan can rip apart a nervous Jaipur Pink Panthers defense.
Sunil Kumar is not only going to lead the Gujarat Fortunegiants side but also orchestrate the defense as its lead defender. He is one part of a defense that has given away the least amount of points against it this season and is going to be tough but to crack for the Pink Panthers.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants have won six out of their last seven matches and are in excellent form. They also hold a 3-1 advantage over the Jaipur Pink Panthers in head to head contests. The Jaipur Pink Panthers have not lost in their last three matches but now their motivation to qualify for the Super Playoffs has been ended.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants enter into most contests as the favorites and it is nothing different this time around. They have a better defense, one of the best raiders in the league, and is up against a side that has nothing to achieve in this season of the PKL anymore.
Back the Gujarat Fortunegiants to win.
