Here is all you need to know ahead of the UP Yoddha vs Gujarat Giants battle in Pro Kabaddi 2021. 
Here are some Dream11 tips for the match between UP Yoddha and Gujarat Giants. 
Gujarat Giants have relied on their defense for their success. They have a fantastic quartet of Ravinder Pahal, Sunil Kumar, Parvesh Bhainswal and Girish Maruti Ernak in the defensive unit. It will be exciting to see how the quartet performs against Pardeep Narwal. 
On the other side, Gujarat Giants have won one, tied one and lost one match in Pro Kabaddi 2021 so far. They are two spots above UP Yoddha in the points table at the moment. If Gujarat Giants win the battle against UP Yoddha, they can enter the Top 2 of the points table tonight. 
UP Yoddha grabbed the headlines by signing Pardeep Narwal at the PKL Auction 2021. However, the Record breaker is yet to fire for his new franchise. In the last match against Jaipur Pink Panthers, Pardeep could not get going, and it ultimately resulted in the defeat of UP Yoddha. Even Nitesh Kumar has not been at his best in Pro Kabaddi 2021.
