UP vs GUJ Dream11 and Predicted Playing 7 : Gujarat Fortunegiants look to push for their second win of the league while U.P. Yoddha look to comeback after a waning performance
The final day of the first home leg from the land of Pro Kabaddi League 7 comes to a culmination today with the first of the two matches slated for Friday seeing Gujarat Fortunegiants and U.P. Yoddha clashing heads against each other. For either side, the onset into the latest edition of PKL 7 has played out in opposing manner, leaving either side on other ends of the league standings.
While Gujarat Fortunegiants were able to avenge last year’s final defeat against Bengaluru Bulls in their league opener, U.P. Yoddha were brushed apart by a massive 31 points. For the Fortunegiants, it was their defence which stepped to the mantle, delivering a clinical performance as Sunil Kumar went onto record a high 5 as he and Ruturaj Koravi ended up stalling Pawan Kumar Sherawat’s soirees in the raiding facet.
Elsewhere for U.P. Yoddha’s the travesties of the defence turned out to hammer in a defeat by 48-17 for the side after the backline completely fell apart. Putting too much trust on Nitish Kumar alone and not going in for anyother star defender in the auctions proved to be calamitous for the side who made some rather questionable decisions on the day.
Not selecting Rishank in the raiding department was one of the biggest quizzical moves by the side as they went ahead with only Monu Goyat who was found lacking the much needed assistance across the encounter. The side were left in complete disarray as they went onto receive a drubbing, one they would like to rectify when they square off against Gujarat Fortunegiants come today.
Probable Winner for UP vs GUJ Dream11
As far as this match goes, we just can’t see any winner emerging from this other than Gujarat. The side were impeccable in defence against the reining champions with their raiding facet complimenting the backline perfectly to imbed one of the most pristine performances of the season.
What made for ravishing viewing from Gujarat on that night was how their entire team stepped up to the mantle, ensuring that at no point of time were the Bengaluru Bulls allowed into the encounter. Expect this to another win for Gujarat with U.P. Yoddha still having two much work to do before in both the segments.

Dream 11 Picks
Defenders for UP vs GUJ Dream11
Having defeat U.P. Yoddha thrice last season along with a crucial win the second qualifier, Gujarat saw their defence rise to the occasion as they clean out Yoddha last time around. And it’s this facet which is going to play a quissential role in this match as well for the with their defenders helping lay the foundation for the side’s win today. We are also bringing in Ankit with his 11 price tag helping free up money elsewhere.
This proposition sees us go ahead with Sunil Kumar from the side after he registered 6 tackle points in the previous match. From U.P. Yoddha we are picking up Nitish Kumar, the defender with the most number of tackles in PKL 6.
All-Rounders for UP vs GUJ Dream11
With Rohit Gulia coming up with a fine display in the raiding department the last time around, his side will once again be heavily relying on him to deliver today as well. And with the Yoddha’s looking paper thin at best at the moment at the back, expect him to get some good points.
Raiders for UP vs GUJ Dream11
Monu Goyat from U.P. Yoddha will be our first pick in this facet with the side making it clear that their most expensive signing this season is going to be the man they bank on in the front part of the part. He was in good form as well in the previous encounter, waging a lone battle with some solid hand and toe touches to come up with good points despite getting no partner to help him.
From Gujarat Fortunegiants we have Sachin Tanwar and Sonu Jaglan come into our side. Jaglan’s display was extremely impressive with the raider coming on as a substitue to record his side’s first super raid, one which might see him earn a place in the playing 7 today.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have selected Sachin Tanwar to be our captain for this match while Sunil is the vice-captain.
