PUN vs TAM Dream11 : Puneri Paltan look to keep their chances of making the top 6 alive as they scrimmage 5 vital points today
A bottom of the table clash brings an end to the fixture this Wednesday in the dramatic land of Pro Kabaddi League 7 but Puneri Paltan know they can shrug off the tag of being a bottom side with a win today. A win today would propel them all the way into 8th place, placing them just four points within distance of U Mumba who occupy the final top 6 spot at the moment.
And would immensely buoy the side ahead of today’s imminent encounter is the identity of their opposition along with the narrative that this is their home leg. In Tamil Thalaivas, Puneri Paltan couldn’t have asked for an easier or better opposition with the side floundering in last place, being battered and rattled by everyone who has squared off against them.
With the least number of wins of all the sides in the league at just three, it is only befitting that Tamil Thalaivas find themselves becoming the first side whose journey in the league has come to an end. With 16 points off a place in the top 6 as we traverse towards the culminating stages of the league encounters, Tamil Thalaivas are only left fighting to overturn their horrifying form and scramble together a run of reasonable results.
Elsewhere, Puneri Paltan know that they can’t put in another shambolic display like they did against Patna Pirates the last time around they stepped out in the middle if they are to have any chances of challenging for the top 6. Give the closely contested nature of the league, every win is critical for the side and they’ll be looking to make the most of their home leg today.

PUN vs TAM Match Prediction
What favours Puneri Paltan ahead of today’s clash is the horrid nature of their opposition’s defence. Its paper thin at best, an ordeal Puneri Paltan will be looking to capitalise on as they head out yearning for a win today.
This will by no means be a drubbing for Tamil Thalaivas but a defeat nonetheless for them with Puneri Paltan managing to keep their chances of making it to the qualifiers alive.
