Today's PKL Match Prediction
The Haryana Steelers' attack is looking menacing with all three raiders in form. However, their defense leaked too many points in the last match. One could expect Surender Nada & Co. to regroup quickly and take charge.
Meanwhile, Gujarat Giants' famous defensive set-up has failed miserably this season. They don't have a reliable attacking unit, and if their defense doesn't fire against the Steelers, they will be looking at another embarrassing defeat.
Prediction: Haryana Steelers are likely to win this fixture.
