DEL vs PAT Dream11 prediction

After making an impressive start to the ongoing edition of Pro Kabaddi, Dabang Delhi K.C. have struggled in their last five matches, registering just one win, suffering two losses while two matches have ended in ties. The Joginder Narwal-led side will be eager to bounce back in the remaining league matches in order to finish in the top two. DEL are currently placed second in the PKL 2021-22 standings with 65 points from 20 matches.

On the other hand, three-time champions Patna Pirates have been the most dominant side in the ongoing PKL season, securing 15 wins in 20 matches so far. With 80 points on the board, Prashanth Kumar’s side are currently leading the points table, 15 points clear of second-placed Delhi.

While Patna Pirates have won all their last five matches in the league, they had suffered a 29-32 defeat against Dabang Delhi K.C in January. DEL will look to do the double over PAT and improve their chances of finishing in the top two of the Pro Kabaddi Season 8 standings although the three-time champions will be slight favourites to win the fixture.
