The Pro Kabaddi universe will witness U Mumba and UP Yoddha battling out in the first game of the new year. Mumbai's local had derailment after the first win but the Orange Army now seems back on track. So let's unfold the detailed preview of the encounter between Pardeep's UP Yoddha and U Mumba led by Fazel Atrachali.

Strategic Takeaways

U Mumba will be stepping on the mat having great momentum from their previous triumph over arch-rivals Jaipur. Coach Subramanian Rajaguru may keep the same Starting 7 from that game avoiding any risk to winning combination. Yoddhas had to share match-points with Gujarat Giants in a nail-biting draw from the previous fixture. Railways star raider Shrikant Jadhav may continue on the substitute bench of UP.

Head to Head

Both teams have faced each other on six occasions at the Pro Kabaddi League stage due to the late addition of the Uttar Pradesh based franchise. And the beam scale of head-to-head count also remains congruous.

Overall H2H record:

6 - Matches

3 - U Mumba

Key Battle

Pardeep Narwal vs U Mumba defence

Pardeep Narwal somehow managed to avert UP's defeat against Gujarat Giants by scoring a vital Super 10. U Mumba defence also seems back on track after a great outing against Pink Panthers. Mumba managed to daunt Pardeep from scoring big on both occasions of season seven. Although Pardeep Narwal loves the challenges and has a habit of turning the tables so comfortably.
