A topsy-turvy half, with the game ebbing and flowing continuously. After Pune assumed an early lead, U Mumba came roaring back as they inflicted an all-out on the Paltan. However, following that, there were plenty of errors from the Mumbai outfit in the defense which allowed the Pune side to level the score in the twentieth minute. It has been a raid-fest this far, with Aslam Inamdar and Abhishek Singh picking up 6 points while Mohit Goyat and Ajith Kumar have picked up 5 points. The U Mumba defense has contributed better while for Pune, it has been Nadarajan and Karamvir who have points in the defense. An evenly-fought contest and it will go right down the live-wire.

Right then, the resurgence of Puneri Paltan continues as they find themselves riding on a nice little 3-match unbeaten streak. Once reeling at the bottom of the points table, the Paltan now find themselves placed eleventh but a win here will see them rise significantly in the points table. The onus will once again be on coach Anup Kumar's young lads - Aslam Inamdar and Mohit Goyat. The duo have been nothing short of impressive this season and have gotten the job done on most occasions recently. The new corner combo of Karamvir and Sombir have been good while cover defenders Abinesh Nadarajan and Sanket Sawant have been on top of their game. All-in-all, the Pune unit is a settled one and will be hungry to get a win under their belt. 

However, that will be easier said than done as they will be taking on 'Sultan' Fazel Atrachali's Mumboys. U Mumba's four-match unbeaten streak was broken in their previous encounter as they succumbed to a 6-point loss against the Dabang Delhi K.C. in a closely-fought encounter. The raiders had a quiet game and will be hoping to make a strong comeback. The absence of Rahul Sethpal along with the failure of the third raider summed up U Mumba's loss. They will look to hold their nerve better in this contest and come out all guns blazing as they look to rise in the points table.
