The Fortunegiants are second in the Zone A standings after ten games, while the Yoddha are second from bottom in the Zone B.
The Fortunegiants come into this game after a thrilling 30-30 draw with the Bengaluru Bulls. With an idea at making the home stretch their best chance of making it to the top, the Gujarat Fortunegiants team will look to extend it with a win over the struggling Yoddha.
A big chunk of their chances will depend on whether the rider Sachin continues his good form this season. Captain Sunil Kumar and his squad have been in their element this season and if they continue to bring their best defensive play, it would be tough to keep them away from full points.
The Yoddha haven’t been at their best this season and have won just three of their 14 matches so far. There have been eight losses and three draws as well, indicating a propensity for this side to struggle to close out matches.
It is the striker trio of Rishank Devadiga, Srikanth Jadhav and Prashant Kumar Rai that have been driving the Yoddha. They have picked up 439 points in the season so far, which is the fourth-best, although the results haven’t been positive.
