PAT vs PUN Dream11 prediction

Three-time champions Patna Pirates sit third on the Pro Kabaddi Season 8 standings and start as favourites against Puneri Paltan.

Patna enter the contest with two losses in their last three matches, with their defensive issues being exposed to the front. They will have a tough time against Puneri Paltan’s raiding trio of Aslam Inamdar, Nitin Tomar and Mohit Goyat, who have been decent with their performances this term.

Despite leading the head-to-head record, Patna Pirates will be on their guard to avoid a surprise defeat to Puneri Paltan.

PAT vs PUN Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8

Top tip: Best raider

Fantasy players can confidently draft in Mohit Goyat as the top raider. The PUN star is averaging 5.33 raid points per match in PKL season 8 and he’s expected to get the better of Patna’s defenders who have lacked confidence on the mat in the last few matches. Available for 14.5 credits, picking Goyat in your fantasy team is definitely a wise investment for a long-term cause.

Top tip: Best defender

Sunil can be backed as the best defender in the PAT vs PUN match, given his 23 tackle points at a strike rate of 49 per cent. With 586 fantasy points under his belt till now, the PAT right corner defender will be tasked with blocking successful raid attempts from Puneri Paltan’s Aslam Inamdar, Mohit Goyat and Co.

Top tip: Best all-rounder

If there is anyone who can turn things around for Puneri Paltan this season, it is Aslam Inamdar. The raider - listed as an all-rounder - has scored 87 points, out of which 74 are raid points. With Patna’s defence shaky at the moment, Inamdar will fancy his opportunities of scoring more raid points and build on his tally of 811 fantasy points.  

PAT vs PUN probable starting lineups

PAT starting 7 (probable): Guman Singh, Prashanth Kumar Rai, Sachin Tanwar, Neeraj Kumar, Shubham Shinde, C Sajin, Mohammadreza Chiyaneh
