Puneri Paltan is slowly getting back in form after winning three out of their previous four games in PKL 2021. The UP lad Nitin Tomar will be leading the Paltan franchise against his home-side UP Yoddha. So let's have a look at the detailed preview of match number 60 of the season eight caravan.

Strategic Takeaways

Both sides will be taking the court after sustaining a decent run from a recent couple of fixtures. Thus both coaches, Anup Kumar and Jasveer Singh may not consider any changes in the winning combination. Pardeep Narwal scored a match-winning Super 10 against Telugu Titans hence UP fans are expecting more from the record-breaker. Also, there are minimal chances that we will get to see Rahul Chaudhari on the mat who also hails from the Uttar Pradesh state.

Head to Head

Puneri Paltan emerged victorious in their first-ever encounter and also knocked out UP in the Eliminator round of season five. Since then, both teams faced each other three times and Yoddha won all three battles. In the last encounter between these franchises, the clock was stopped on a scoreline of 43-39 in favour of Yoddhas where the UP Yoddha captain Nitesh Kumar rattled Pune's attacking unit scoring six tackle points.

Overall H2H record:

5 - Matches

3 - UP Yoddha

2 - Puneri Paltan
