UP vs HAR Dream11 : Haryana Steelers look to make further strides in the league standings as they move to the bedlam of their home
There couldn’t have been a more emphatic, profound and befitting way to throw open the doors of the Haryana leg of Pro Kabaddi League 7 than with the Northern derby. As we move towards the 11th leg of the prestigious league and the clamour for a spot in the top 6 grows, Haryana Steelers and U.P. Yoddha get ready to immerse and engage us in a brand of riveting kabaddi, a pristine way to revel in this Saturday.
Perched firmly in third place, for Haryana Steelers, the second half of the season has been all but too kind. After precariously poised on the cusp of the top 6 at the halfway mark, the side have been in imperious and indomitable touch ever since, going on one of the best and most consistent sprees in this edition of PKL to stamp their authority as a tenacious kabaddi side.
It’s been a spree of results which the side have craved for since the previous edition of the league and once they finally settled into their groove, there was no displacing the side from their upwards trajectory in the league. Leaving their footprints all over the league, the side now scour into their home leg as they look commence the first of four matches slated for the side infront of their ardent and rapturous supporters with yet another rousing display.
Things are going to be far for easy for them today though as they prepare to go at loggerheads with their neighbours, a U.P. Yoddha side which is embroiled in a tedious battle to consolidate its spot in the top 6. Currently occupying sixth place with 53 points, the side have picked up 31 points in their previous 7 matches, emulating the late surge of PKL 2018 to emerge unscathed in the dying stages of the league in a bid to salvage their season.

UP vs HAR Match Prediction
Determining a winner from today’s encounter is an extremely tricky proposition with these two sides being in menacing and formidable form, two sides which everyone would wish to avoid at the moment. Both have written out the identical scripts in the league, turning around a slow start to convert it into a sensational one to go on a rampant set of results to unlock their true potential.
What just about favours Haryana Steelers in today’s encounter is their raiding unit, one which should just about be able to emerge from this skirmish without a speckle and become the fulcrum of their side’s winning effort today.

UP vs HAR Dream11 Defenders
We are divulging a massive amount of money to invest in both the side’s leading defenders, names who have become the mainstay of their side’s backline. Taking centrestage for Haryana Steelers has been Sunil who has amassed a stellar 42 points in his artillery to emphasise his enigmatic and enterprising nature as a defender.
Elsewhere from U.P. Yoddha we are getting in Nitish Kumar. Where the side were failing to muster up two meaningful tackles in the opening part of the season, they are not a stringiest and tightly wrapped defensive setup. The defensive gameplan has been sublime, not letting anything slip through it to become the pristine framework of their illustrious success and the side will be looking to engulf the Steelers in a tussle today.
UP vs HAR Dream11 All-Rounders
From being a pivotal raider for the side to being converted into an all-rounder, Rishank Devadiga’s worth has only reason for U.P. Yoddha this season. The side have done well to utilise his skill set as a more than handy and capable defender as well, asking him to put in arm-chain tackles and use his body blocks to halt raiders.
Gurdeep got an extended role in the previous match for his side, with the all-rounder making the most of the chance accorded to him. It was a performance which should see him be entrusted with more time out in the middle today, making him a piquant pick at just 11.5 credits.
UP vs HAR Dream11 Raiders
Both the sides have turned to their raiding facets to rescue them and help them overhaul their dismal form and their raiders have been more than kind to listen to their call. There couldn’t be a more emphatic testament to this discourse than the succulent pefromance Vikash Khandola has doled out for his side, roping in a staggering 138 points in the process.
And complimenting him perfectly has been Vinay with 83 points, seeing him come into our side as well while from U.P. Yoddha we are opting for their leading raider with 103 raid points, Srikhhant Jadhav for today’s imminent clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Vikash is being made our captain for today’s match while Srikhhant is opted as the vice-captain.
