Match 79 of Pro Kabaddi Season 8 will see U.P. Yoddha (UP) taking on a struggling Puneri Paltan (PUN) team at Sheraton Grand, Whitefield in Bengaluru on Thursday, January 27. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST.

UP vs PUN Dream11 prediction

Having won three of their last four fixtures, it is safe to say UP will have some momentum on Thursday. On the contrary, Puneri Paltan have struggled for results to an extent that they are 10th in the league standings after managing just six wins from their 13 outings. Even though Pune have won their last two games, U.P. Yoddha will have a slight edge heading into the match. 

The two teams have already played once this season in a match that saw Surender Gill score an impressive 21 points as UP defeated PUN 50-40.

UP vs PUN Dream11 team tips for Pro Kabaddi Season 8

Top tip: Best raider

Given the form PUN’s Mohit Goyat has enjoyed of late, he remains the best possible option for a raider. The 21-year-old has tallied 836 fantasy points riding on his return of 67 raid points from 11 games. It is important to note that he has made it to the Dream Team in each of his last two matches.

Top tip: Best defender

At 15 credits, UP’s Sumit,  who has 32 tackle points so far, remains an expensive investment, but a return of 763 fantasy points makes him a worthy defender for this match. Selected by 49.48 per cent of fantasy managers, the UP defender has tallied 266 fantasy points from his last four matches.

Top tip: Best all-rounder

Like his teammate Mohit Goyat, all-rounder Aslam Inamdar of PUN has been a part of the Dream Team in his last two outings. He has accumulated 931 fantasy points so far and has proved to be quite a coup for fantasy players. Inamdar remains a strong recommendation as he looks likely to add to his total of 101 points this season.

UP vs PUN probable starting lineups

UP starting 7 (probable): Srikanth Jadhav, Pardeep Narwal, Mohammad Taghi, Shubham Kumar, Nitesh Kumar, Sumit, Ankit

PUN starting 7 (probable): Mohit Goyat, Aslam Inamdar, Nitin Tomar, Sombir, Abinesh Nadarajan, Sanket Sawant, Karamvir
