MUM Vs UP Dream 11 Team Prediction : Lacklustre U.P. Yoddha head out in search of their first win while U Mumba look to recover from their defeat against Bengaluru Bulls.
For U Mumba, Pro Kabaddi League 7 continues to remain about finding a consistent footing in the league. Where the home side for today have impressed in their two wins, they have equally disappointed in their two defeats as well, leaving much to be desired from the side still.
The side headed into their home leg of the marquee league in scintillating fashion by decimating an agonising Puneri Paltan side by a margin of 10 points but the ensuing result bore massive dejection for the outfit. Leading reigning champions Bengaluru Bulls by 21-16 as the match ventured towards it closing stages, the side ended up squandering their advantage to concede defeat in an encounter which should have been firmly sealed by them.
However when they take on U.P. Yoddha today, U Mumba will be quietly confident of getting back to winning ways. They are up against a side who have massive areas of concern, an outfit yet to register a win in PKL 7, being let down by both their attacking and defending department.
The side had heavily billed up their raiding unit ahead of the ongoing season of the league but tits failed to live upto the massive expectations accorded on its head. New singing Monu Goyat has just 7 points which coupled with last year’s highest raid points amasser, Srikhhant Jadhav’s five points tells us the story of the massive failings prevalent in the side at the moment.
Their decision to put all their money on Nitish Kumar in defence hasn’t helped the side’s cause either with the Defender Of The Year for PKL 6 massively failing this time around. He was announced captain of his side for this season but has failed to lead the side efficiently, seeing U.P. Yoddha picking up the pieces after failing to properly invest in their defence.
With so many problems peppering U.P. Yoddha at the moment, we just don’t see them coming out of this match with a win. Be it at the front or the back, the side have failed to impress to be put down to runaway defeats, something that hasn’t augured well for the side.
And U Mumba will be looking to capitalise on this with the side having some brilliant individual performers, worldclass names who’ll be more than ready to take the accountability of a win today. Expect the home side to win this one with ease, leaving Yoddha suffering yet another defeat.

Dream 11 Picks
One of the defensive partnerships which has stood tall among the rest this season has been of U Mumba’s Fiazel Atrachali and cover defender Surjeet Singh. With 12 and 11 tackling points respectively, the two have intertwined their abilities with perfect with Fiazel coming up with the body blocks while Surjeet has strategically gone for the unbreakable ankle and thigh holds.
These two should enjoy their time out today against a raiding unit has offered nothing in the way of attacks, coming out with more empty raids than successful one.
Heavily investing in defence, U Mumba brought in Sandeep Narwal and the buy has turned out to be an astounding one with the all-rounder using the immense pool of abilities and experience at this perusal to unravel side’s attacking moves. His arm chain tackles and blocks have been impossible to wriggle free off and we envisage him getting another rich bagful of points today as well.
We have also opted for Narender from U.P. Yoddha over here despite the defender enduing a horrid time till now. His loss of form has let the side down massively but we are going to entrust him one last time to rectify his mistakes and put up a performance of worth today.
With 27 points in 4 matches, Abhishek Singh has taken the onus on himself to deliver incisive and mach winning performances for U Mumba. He’s gotten excellent support from Arjun Deshwal who makes an entry into our playing 7 as well with U.P. Yoddha looking a tepid and lopsided defending side as things stands.
Elsewhere from U.P. Yoddha we have gone in with Srikhhant Jadhav as our raiding option from the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Abhishek Singh has been selected as our side’s captain for this one while Fiazel is picked up as the vice-captain.
