U.P. Yoddha will be hosting the Puneri Paltan in the second clash of their home leg at Shaheed Vijay Singh Pathik Sports Complex, Greater Noida. The hosts will be coming into the match on a three-game winning streak and would want to continue this form against Pune.

U.P. Yoddha beat Puneri Paltan in their last outing against the team from Maharashtra. Match filled with back and forth moments finally ended with a 35-30 score in favour of the Yoddha. Shrikant Jadhav grabbed his first Super 10 of the season against the Paltan. He was stellar on the mat that night garnering a total of 15 raid points, making him the ‘Perfect Raider of the Match’ in the previous battle. The star raider would surely aim to repeat the feat against Puneri Paltan.  

Talking about the opposition, there is quite a bit of talent in that side with the likes of Manjeet, Surjeet Singh & Nitin Tomar in the squad. These individuals have the capability of bringing a stir any time into the game, U.P. Yoddha players will always have to be vigilant. The Paltan have not been the most consistent side with only two wins in the last five encounters, they will aim to redeem themselves against the hosts.

The home side, U.P. Yoddha has been splendid on the corners of the mat thanks to the brilliance of Nitesh Kumar & Sumit Sangwan at those positions. The duo has the most tackle points in the league this season with a total of 121 defence points between them. They would want to continue the consistency against the Puneri Paltan in the upcoming encounter.
