A disappointing start to the Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) Season 7 puts pressure on UP Yoddha ahead of their next match. Match #19 will feature Yoddha against U Mumbai, in Mumbai on Wednesday. The hosts need to get back to winning ways also, making this an interesting match.
Mumbai have two losses and two wins in the tournament and badly need some momentum. On the other hand, the visitors are yet to win a point after two games. With a strong squad at its disposal, the Yoddha have a lot riding on them in this match. The head-to-head is tied 2-2, so brace yourselves for a tight encounter.
U Mumba Preview
Bengaluru Bulls edged out Mumbai in the closing stages of the previous match. U Mumba will now look to get their winning momentum back. The raiding department of Abhishek Singh and Rohit Baliyan have been in prime form for the Mumbaikars.
The home fans will, however, hope that their kingpin defender Fazal Atrachali comes good. Together with Sandeep Narwal and Surinder Singh, he picked up just four tackle points in the previous match.
UP Yoddha Preview
After coming short in the first two matches, the Yoddha will be desperate for a win. With a strong team led by the raiders Monu Goyat and Shrikant Jadhav, they will look to get back to winning ways. The anticipated return of Rishank Devadiga could just be the tonic they need.
The worry for Yoddha is the meagre returns in the defensive front. Captain Nitesh Kumar will hope to come good when it is the most required. Giving company will be Sumi and Narender, but Yoddha need to get their act together.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Abhishek Singh has been the shining grace for U Mumba and the raider needs to be at his best. He could be a good pick for your fantasy side.
Monu Goyat has the burden of a heavy price tag, but the Yoddha raider is a star player. He will be at the forefront of their raids and fantasy points.
Nitesh Kumar has to come good and lead from the front for the Yoddha. The defender hasn’t really kicked up this season and it is time he does.
