Today's PKL Match Prediction
The Pirates have momentum on their side and have managed to perform as a unit so far. Their attack wasn't up to the mark in the last game, but their defense bailed them out. The three-time PKL champions will be hoping for a better performance in the attack against U Mumba.
At the same time, U Mumba produced a complete performance in the last game. They managed to play as per their potential, with the defense and the attack contributing equally.
However, the Season 2 winners have failed to stay consistent so far and it remains to be seen if they can repeat their performance once again.
Prediction: Patna Pirates are expected to win this game.
