Today’s PKL Match Prediction
U Mumba are under pressure coming into this match. They have lost two successive games and need to get themselves back on track. Ajith Kumar and Abhishek Singh have been consistent performers for the team. But the rest of the unit has to step up if they are to make a comeback.
Meanwhile, the Thalaivas will be brimming with confidence coming into this clash on the back of two big wins. Their raiders and defenders are performing well in tandem.
U Mumba’s defense hasn’t looked threatening in the recent past and the Thalaivas raiders are in top form to exploit the same. Moreover, their rock-solid defense will be the biggest threat for U Mumba’s raiders.
The Thalaivas are performing well as a unit and are likely to continue their winning run.
Prediction: Tamil Thalaivas to defeat U Mumba.
