Puneri Paltan vs UP Yoddhas Today PKL Match Prediction

Puneri Paltan have played as a combined unit this season. The star raiding duo of Akash Shinde and Mohammad Nabibakhsh were instrumental in their previous win against the Patna Pirates, scoring an impressive 13 and nine points, respectively. They were brilliantly supported by their skipper Fazal Atrachali as the Iranian defender notched up four crucial points in the game.

However, the UP Yoddhas lost heavily in the absence of their star players in their previous fixture against the Tamil Thalaivas. No raider or defender looked threatening as the team lost the game by a massive 15-point margin. The Pardeep Narwal-led team will look to get back on track in the knockout stages of the tournament.
