Puneri Paltan staged a remarkable comeback against the Haryana Steelers in the last match. The side looked down and out after the first half but More GB and Sandeep Narwal played an amazing second half to be able to get the victory for Puneri Paltan.
The role of Mre GB has become much more pronounced since the absence of Nitin Tomar. He has scored 49 raid points and is one of the few offensive men that Puneri Paltan can depend on. The win against the Haryana Steelers was Puneri Paltan’s first win in its last five matches. A tie and three losses precede that result showcasing the difficulty Puneri Paltan has had in recent weeks.
This current Puneri Paltan side is a defense-first side with players like Girish Maruti Ernak, Sandeep narwal, and others dominating the mat. It is a change that they have had to make strategically with the loss of Nitin Tomar and we are not sure if it is something that will bring them sustained success.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants are coming into this match on the back of two consecutive wins. The side is the only one in this season of the PKL to have gone through a home leg without too much damage. Now, with a struggling Puneri Paltan in its way and the top spot in its sights, the Gujarat Fortunegiants will be very difficult to stop.
With 105 raid points to his name, twice as many as the next best raider on his side, Sachin has been the heart of the Gujarat Fortunegiants offensive unit. He has built on an excellent season 5 of Pro Kabaddi and is taking his game to another level this time around.
Sachin scored 19 raid points in the last two matches against the Puneri Paltan and we think he is all set to another Super-10 to his tally in Pro Kabaddi 6.
Parvesh Bhainswal has established himself as one of the best defenders in the league this season. As one of the four defenders with over 50 tackle points this season, Bhainswal has played a central role in the Gujarat Fortunegiants success.
He leads an organized defense that will be very difficult for Puneri Paltan to get through.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants have never lost to Puneri Paltan in the history of Pro Kabaddi. The head to head stands 5-0 in favor of the Gujarat FOrtunegiants. This will be the third meeting between the two sides this season and Puneri Patna is going to have to do something really special to be able to break this losing streak.
The Gujarat Fortunegiants have won 10 out of their last 12 matches in Pro Kabaddi 6. It is the only side to have defeated U Mumba everytime it has played it. Beating a depleted Puneri Paltan side should not be a tough ask for this well-drilled Gujarat unit.
Back the Gujarat Fortunegiants to win.
