Coming off the back of a 45-27 win against Haryana Steelers, Puneri Paltan will look to continue the momentum and start their home leg with a win.
Gujarat Fortunegiants are well-rested after their previous game following a five-day break.

They will further take inspiration from the fact that they have never yet lost to Puneri Paltan in Pro Kabaddi.

Skipper Girish Maruti Ernak chipped in with 6 tackle points of his own to show how strong Puneri Paltan’s defence is.
