The Warriors have had a disappointing run this season as they sit 11th in the league standings with seven wins, nine losses and one tied game. The defending champions have completely lost momentum with four losses in their last five matches, including a 29-38 defeat against the Patna Pirates in their previous fixture.
The Titans, on the other hand, have already crashed out of the competition. They are languishing in last position in the Pro Kabaddi points table with only a single win, twelve losses, and three tied games. The Titans lost their previous game to UP Yoddha 35-39 and are still searching for their second win of the season.
While the Titans have nothing to lose now, it is a must-win match for the defending champions. The Warriors defeated the Titans 28-27 in a thriller of a contest earlier this season. They will look to repeat the performance to earn a vital victory to keep their title defense alive.

Today's PKL Match Prediction
Maninder Singh had a rare off-day against the Pirates. But the Warriors' attack still looks sorted, with Mohammad Nabibakhsh and Manoj Gowda bringing raid points.
However, the same can't be said about their defense. They had another dismal defensive performance, which has been the principal reason for their downfall this season.
Meanwhile, the Titans have been hit hard by injuries this campaign. Rajnish's return has boosted their attacking prospects, which was visible against Yoddhas in the previous fixture. If they could shore up their defense a little bit, they could pick up their second win of the season.
Prediction: Bengal Warriors are expected to win this contest.
