Puneri Paltan (PUN) will take on Gujarat Giants (GUJ) in match 34 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 at Sheraton Grand Whitefield, Bengaluru on Wednesday, January 5. 

PUN vs GUJ Dream11 prediction

Both teams are languishing in the bottom half of the points table with one win each from five games. While Puneri Paltan find themselves in last spot with five points, Gujarat Giants have 13 points courtesy two tied games against U.P. Yoddha and Dabang Delhi K.C. Both teams will be desperate to register a win and climb the points table. 

There is nothing much to separate two teams on paper although Gujarat Giants hold a slender advantage owing to their marginally better current form when compared to Puneri Paltan.
