UP Vs HAR Dream 11 Team Prediction : U.P. Yoddha and Haryana Steelers look to make it two wins on the bounceafter defeating Bengaluru Bulls.
For U.P. Yoddha and Haryana Steelers, the seventh edition of the Pro Kabaddi League has yet to fully come to life. While the side have put in some staunch displays, showing us glimpses of what they are capable of on the mat, they have lacked the much needed consistency, something which has persistently pegged them back in their quest for a spot in the annuls of the league standings.
However for all their fallings, what will give both our opponents for today immense confidence are their wins the last time around they stepped out in the middle. Both these sides are heralding into today’s encounter having defeated the reigning champions Bengaluru Bulls, a win which not only gave them 5 vital points but also saw them triumph an opponent way superior to them.
Helping snap a three match losing spree for U.P. Yoddha were Monu Goyat and Srikhhant Jadhav with the two raiders in impeccable form for the side the last time around. They helped cover the glaring weaknesses the side continues to posses in its backline, intertwining together to use their wide perusal of toe touches, running hand touches and kicks to amass a bagful of points for the side.
Elsewhere for the Steelers, their third win in the marquee league came courtesy of cover defenders Ravi Kumar and Vikas Kale and raider Vikash Khandola. It helped infuse much needed impetuous into the side, helping spurge their resurgence and revive their aspirations for a spot in the top 4, a clinical performance the side will be looking to emanate today as well.
Probable Playing 7
Nitesh Kumar (C), Mohsen Maghsoudlou, Shrikant Jadhav, Monu Goyat, Amit, Ashu Singh, Sumit
Dharmaraj Cheralathan (C), Sunil, Vinay, Naveen, Vikas Kandola, Vikas Kale, Ravi Kumar
While U.P. Yoddha have finally seen Monu Goyat come into, justifying the staggering amount the side shelled out for him and showing why he’s considered as one of the best do or die and all out raiders in the league, the defence continues to be a massive problem for them. They came up with a massively improved performance the last time around but against a ruthless opponent today could find it difficult to emulate the same showing.
It’s this proposition which see us side with the Steelers for this match. This should be a cracker of a match, one where the score end up being extremely high, in favour of the Steelers at the end of the 40 minutes.
