UP vs GUJ Dream11 : U.P. Yoddha look to break into the top 7 for the first time this season today
At the halfway mark of the seventh season of Pro Kabaddi League, U.P. Yoddha were outlined as one side for whom this season was going to be a horrid outing. Be it in defence or attack, the side were struggling to salvage wins, succumbing to harrowing defeats courtesy of some terrible displays.
However akin to last season when a sensational late surge saw the side turnover a dismal first half, PKL 7 looks to playing out the same script for the side. The raiding facet has been relentlessly resurgent over the course of the last two weeks for the side, convulsing with the defensive setup to conjointly guide the side all the way to seventh place ahead of today’s impending encounter.
Beginning a new week in the land of PKL 7 as we slowly start traversing towards the closing stages of the league stage matches, I.P. Yoddha now stand with a chance of breaching the top 6 for the first time this season. With the side level on points U Mumba, a win today would see them climb into sixth place, a position previously unimaginable for the outfit.
Elsewhere for their opponents, today’s match is all about displacing U.P. Yoddha from seventh place. For last year’s finalists Gujarat Fortunegiants, the season has been similar to U.P Yoddha with the side seeing a midway recovery keep their chances alive of reserving their spot in the coveted top 6 after blundering and going on a successive 5 match losing spree.

UP vs GUJ Match Prediction
Traditionally, this has been one of the most one-sided clashes in the league with Gujarat Fortunegiants having a 100% record in this contest. Out of the four matches played between the two sides, U.P. Yoddha have failed to win a single one with the three wins for Gujarat while the one has ended in a draw.
With U.P. Yoddha coming into this encounter with a win in their kitty while Gujarat were only able to salvage a draw, we see U.P. Yoddha winning this one. Not only is it due to their current form but the raiding facet as well, a segment which looks ruthless at the moment.
