UP vs DEL Dream11 prediction

U.P. Yoddha will face in-form Dabang Delhi K.C. on Saturday. Both teams have had contrasting starts to the tournament. While Dabang Delhi K.C. have not lost a game this season, U.P. Yoddha has struggled to find the winning formula. With one win from six matches, they find themselves languishing at the bottom half of the points table desperately in search of a win. 

Although there is not much to separate between the two heavyweights on paper, Dabang Delhi K.C. are likely to win the match given the form they are in at the moment. 

UP vs DEL Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8 

Top tip: Best raider

Picking Dabang Delhi K.C.’s Naveen Kumar in attack is a no-brainer for this clash. Naveen is on a record 28 consecutive Super 10s in Pro Kabaddi and is currently the best raider in the tournament with 106 raid points in six games. With 851 fantasy points to his tally, Naveen Kumar is a must-have pick despite his high price of 17.5 credits. 

Top tip: Best defender

Sumit of U.P. Yoddha is the best choice amongst defenders for this encounter. The corner defender has 17 tackle points after six matches and has been a vital cog in his side’s defensive unit this season. A total of 365 fantasy points and a selection by 85 per cent fantasy users suggests Sumit is a top pick amongst defenders for 14 credits in the  upcoming clash. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder 

Amongst all-rounders, picking Vijay of Dabang Delhi K.C. is the best option. Vijay has 26 raid points in six matches and has played the perfect support role to Naveen Kumar this season. With 262 fantasy points already this season and being a capable contributor in defence, Vijay is a great budget pick for 13.5 credits. 

UP vs DEL probable starting lineups

UP starting 7 (probable): Pardeep Narwal, Surender Gill, Rohit Tomar, Shubham Kumar Baliyan, Ashu Singh, Sumit Sangwan, Nitesh Kumar (captain)

DEL starting 7 (probable): Ashu Malik, Naveen Kumar, Jeeva Kumar, Joginder Narwal (captain), Manjeet Chhillar, Sandeep Narwal, Vijay
