The UP Yoddha takes on Puneri Paltan in match 79 of PKL 2021 with an eye on the second spot in the points table.

Strategic Takeaways

The last time these two sides met we witnessed a high scoring thriller with a total of 90 points scored in 90 minutes. Expect nothing different as Puneri Paltan seek revenge for that contest.

Surender Gill missed the last match for Yoddha due to an injury when they fell to a narrow loss against the Steelers and fans would be hoping for his return. The Paltan, on the other hand, have been on a consistent run and would be eyeing to maintain their momentum.

Head to Head

The Yoddhas have an edge over the Paltan when it comes to the head to head encounters. In fact, the men from UP went past the Maharashtra-based side by a whopping margin of 10-points in their previous encounter.
