After suffering a close defeat in their last match against Bengal Warriors, the defending champions, Bengaluru Bulls will meet the home side Puneri Paltan in the final match of Pro Kabaddi 2019 season 7's Pune leg.
Puneri Paltan have won one match, lost one and tied one game in front of their home fans but they will look to end their home leg on a high with an impressive performance against the Bulls. They had defeated them earlier this season, hence they will look to repeat the same performance once again.
A win for Bengaluru Bulls will help them take the 3rd position on the points table whereas if Puneri Paltan win this clash, they will reduce the gap between themselves and the seventh-placed Jaipur Pink Panthers to one point.
On that note, let us have a look at how the two teams may line up tonight -
Key Players - Manjeet, Pankaj Mohite and Amit Kumar
The team's top raiders, Manjeet and Pankaj Mohite have sealed their places in the team with their terrific performances. Darshan Kadian may replace Nitin Tomar as the third raider of Puneri Paltan.
