Its a treat whenever these two sides clash. They played some exciting kabaddi last week as the Pirates got the better of the Bulls. There is not much to choose between the sides as both have won 7 out of their 11 games and tied 1 match. But the Bulls will be feeling comfortable with Pawan Sehrawat playing well while the Pirates have an issue as star raider Monu Goyat did not play against Dabang Delhi.

Though the Bulls will be looking to avenge their defeat in the last match to the Pirates, both teams come into this game after losing their previous encounter. The Bulls lost to Patna Pirates while the Pirates lost to Dabang Delhi.

Hence this match becomes very crucial and important for both teams.

Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat is the top raider of the tournament with 151 raid points from 122 successful raids. Patna Pirates are missing Monu Goyat while Sachin Tanwar and Prashant Rai have been able to provide steady raiding income. This is going to the match of the week, special, entertaining and nerve wracking.

Bengaluru Bulls Preview

Bengaluru Bulls are 3rd in the points table, just a point behind the Pirates. In the initial part of the season, many teams were able to get the better of Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat and keep him off the mat for log durations. But Pawan has learned his lessons and the Bulls are also exploiting other teams, like they plundered the Dabang Delhi side in the absence of Naveen Kumar. But time and again Pawan is restricted in certain games and the Bulls do not have a contingency plan.

Pawan Sehrawat has 8 Super 10's to his name with the highest of 27 points in one game.

The Bulls have the most number of successful tackles this season- 109.

This makes them a very potent side difficult to beat. Apart from Pawan, raider Bharat and Chandran Ranjit have chipped in with important contributions.

Left corner Aman and Sourabh Nandal have been consistent in trapping any prey that comes in their zone.

The Bulls have executed 13 Super Tackles and have earned 122 team tackle points which is the highest among all the teams.

They will be aware of the fact that Monu Goyat is not fully fit and this may work to their advantage. But Pawan and other raiders will have to be careful of the Pirate corners, Mohammedreza and Sunil who have been very aggressive and successful in their tackles. The Bulls will be definitely looking for payback as they had lost the last encounter with the Pirates.

Patna Pirates Preview

The Pirates have gone hunting this season and have emerged as the number 2 side of the tournament. They have played 11 games and have accumulated 40 points.

The trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai have accumulated 184 points between them. But Monu Goyat has not been fully fit and could not play against the Dabang Delhi side. Though the Pirates have a new raider in the form of Ghuman Singh who has impressed with his skills.

Overall the Pirates have got one of the most potent combinations on the floor and they look dangerous with every match. In times of adversity, they have displayed courage and unity. They just need to maintain the intensity throughout the match.

Left corner Mohemmedreza has been exceptional with his ankle holds, while right corner Sunil and Sajin have to be more consistent. We will have to see if Sajin is able to play the game as he was severely injured in the last match.

In their last clash, the Pirates were able to keep Pawan off the mat for a significant duration and that helped them tame the Bulls by 7 points. But this time the Pirates have fitness issues and the Bulls will come hard at them.

The Pirates were a bit out of rhythm when they took on the Dabang Delhi side. The Dabang's were off to a flying start in the first half and the Pirates were under tremendous pressure. Though they tried hard to comeback they lost by 3 points. This must have hurt them badly. But they will have improve their looting skills as they take on the Bulls.

This encounter will be full of sensational moves, plundering tackles, feisty raids and high on emotions. The Bulls will be looking for revenge. Hi Flyer Pawan Sehrawat was caught off guard by the Pirate defense in the last game but this time he will seek redemption. Chandran Ranjit has looked a bit fatigued while raider Bharat is still learning to play with the big boys.

The Benguluru defence has been a bit inefficient in certain games and they can't let their guard down against the Pirates. Saurav Nandal and Mahendra will have to perform their guardian duties consistenty.

The Pirates have a few fitness issues with Monu Goyat and Sajin injured in the last game. Will they be able to find proper replacements? Raiders Sachin, Prashant and Ghuman have earned well but they have been shackled by the opponent defenders once in a while.

This match will see a fierce contest between the Pirate defenders especially the corners.

Ideally this match should be a TIE but the Bulls may just overrun the Pirates.

Bengaluru Bulls will win.
