This is a contest between two talented teams who have lost their way this season. Both teams have displayed grit and teamwork in most games, but at the same time, both teams have exposed a lot of their weaknesses. 

The Haryana Steelers have not been able to spice up their life on the mat. Coach Manpreet Singh has not been able to convert this squad into a dangerous unit. The Steelers defense has not imbibed the virtues that its team name suggests. The defense has been rusty and brittle. That is the reason why the Haryana Steelers have not won any of their last 4 games.

The Gujarat Fortune Giants seem to have short term memory loss in several games. They gave a tough fight to the Bengal Warriors in their last game. But the resistance lasted till half time. The Fortune Giants looked lost at sea in the second half and got thrashed.

Both teams are living below the poverty line in the points table. Both teams need to win all their remaining games in order to give themselves a chance to finish in the top 6.

Gujarat Giants Preview

The Fortune Giants have let down not just themselves but their fans too. It is a pity to witness such a vibrant side languishing at the 11th spot in the points table. Coach Ram Mehar Singh has tried all the possible combinations but nothing seems to work for them.

The Gujarat Fortune Giants have lost 6 out of their 12 games and most of these defeats have been by heavy margins. They succumbed to the Bengal Warriors in their last match. It was a contrasting performance by the Fortune Giants as they looked like a different side in both halves of the game. They were up to the mark in the first half trailing by just 1 point. Suddenly they seem to have suffered a brain fade which resulted in just 12 points in the second half including 2 all-outs. It was shocking and unbelievable. 

As a team, the Fortune Giants have conducted just 216 successful team raids in 12 games along with 90 successful team tackles. This is the lowest among all the teams. This proves that the Gujarat defense has not been up to the mark.

The Fortune Giants have conceded 454 points in 12 games which are quite high.

They have inflicted 17 all-outs while conceding 16.

The Fortune Giants have the tendency to slow down games with empty raids and then gamble on the Do-or-die raids. They have earned 43 DoD raid points but this tactic does not necessarily work in all games. 

In their last game, they introduced new defenders Kapil and Manouj. Both were impressive in the first half but their over-excitement resulted in unforced errors in the second half. Defenders Arkam Shaikh and Rinku Narwal were completely out of sync in the last game.

The Fortune Giants will be up against the Harayan Steelers who are facing similar issues. Both teams are hurt as well as eager to win.

Haryana Steelers Preview

The Haryana Steelers have not performed as per the expectations of their fans. They displayed courage, grit, and teamwork in most games but lacked the killer punch. They have lost 7 out of their 13 games and most of these defeats have been close encounters. Even a tactically shrewd coach like Manpreet Singh has not been able to filter out the results.

Raiders Meetu Sharma and Manjeet have been consistent throughout the season but the Steelers have lacked the third raider. Meetu and Manjeet have earned 197 raid points in 13 games. Raider Rakesh Narwal has not fired this season while Prapanjan has not been used judiciously by the Steelers. Prapanjan earned 8 points in the last match against UP Yodha. He should have been used much earlier in the season.

Captain Nitin Rawal has not delivered at all. The left corner position is very crucial for any team and the Steelers will look forward to giving him a break. Defender Jaideep has been working overtime but he cannot win tackle points all alone. He has executed 34 successful tackles in 13 games. 

The Steelers have conducted 203 successful team raids out of their total 543 team raids.

But they have been able to execute just 114 successful tackles.

With 10 Super tackles, it is clear that the Steelers are forced into difficult situations in most of their games.

The Haryana Steelers have inflicted just 14 all-outs but they have conceded 20. 

These are the reasons for their under-par performance this season. The Steelers have a better record than the Fortune Giants. They have won 6 out of their 11 encounters. But they lost the Fortune Giants earlier in this season. This is the moment of truth for the Haryana Steelers as they have to win this match in order to keep their hopes alive in their season.

This is a contest between teams with similar illnesses. Both teams have displayed similar symptoms and a win is the only medication for them. But will the teams share the medication? Will this be a TIE?

The Gujarat Fortune Giants have tinkered with their raiding combination. They need to get back Prateek Dahiya who has been their best raider. But Chandran Ranjit will be effective against the Steelers. Defenders Kapil and Manouj will need to curtail their excitement if they get a chance to play. Defenders Arkam Shaik and Rinku will strike back.

For the Steelers Meetu Sharma will score a Super 10 and Manjeet Dahiya will support him too. Pranpanjan has to be unleashed much early in the match. Iranian Amirhossein Bastami and Jaideep Dahiya will hunt down the Gujarat raiders with ease.

This will be a match full of unforced errors and comic mistakes.

Haryana Steelers will win.
