This is expected to be one of the most entertaining matches of the season as two informed teams take on each other. Patna Pirates are in the third position in the points table with 21 points and a health score difference. Tamil Thalaivas have built their season 8 career from scratch, moved on the safe mode and now they are roaring effortlessly.

Except for the solitary hiccup in their second match, the Pirates have looted the opposition at will. The trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashant Rai have been sensational while their defence has executed 55 successful tackles with 11 successful tackles per match.

The Thalaivas seem to perform well in their yellow jerseys as they dominated UP Yodha in the last match and won it effortlessly. Their raiding department needs to get the X factor but their defence lead by veteran Surjeet has blocked the opposition raiders at will. Though they have conceded 8 all outs they have also inflicted 7. This is what they will have to work on.

But get set for a tasty contest as the Pirates get ready to attack the Thalaiva ports, which will be the last ship standing??? See the odds at Betway for this game!

Patna Pirates Preview

Third in the points table, the Pirates have got their mojo of season 8. They are locked at 21 points in 5 games with Dabang Delhi who have the same points in 4 matches. In fact, the trio of Monu Goyat, Sachin Tanwar and Prashanth Rai has earned 101 raid points together in 5 matches.

They have executed 8 Super tackles, 3 Super raids.

They have inflicted 6 all outs and have conceded only 4.

They have scored the highest average team points scored- 38

They have been tested time and again by teams who have a decent defence. They struggled a bit against the Telegu Titans and were able to win that match by just one points, they were lucky that they didn't have to settle for a tie.

Right corner Sunil and all rounder Mohemmedreza who mans the left corner have been particularly aggressive. This gives them time to intimidate the raider and create panic. With this aggressive nature, they received 4 green cards in the last match, but they won't mind this until they keep winning matches.

Monu Goyat is undoubtedly the star raider, but Sachin Tanwar brings in the X factor delivering stinger raids regularly. He is agile and runs around like a “Gazel” difficult to control.

If Patna Pirates continue to play their aggressive game they should have a good outing and the odds with the betting sites in India are decent for Patna to win.

Tamil Thalaivas Preview

Their last 2 games has shown a completely different side of the Thalaivas, stealing a tie with Dabang Delhi and then beating UP Yodha convincingly. What was clearly visible in these 2 games was the Thalaiva "ATTITUDE".

Raider Pranpanjan has been contributing, Star Manjit has been the tormentor but young Bhavani Rajput has brought in a glow on their faces with his effervescent raiding.

The trio has earned 68 raid points in 6 matches along with some support from Ajinkya Pawar and MS Athul. Thalaivas are playing within their limitations in raiding and have done well. Their defence collectively stole 10 tackle points in the last match and hence they look like a well oiled machine.

Some statistics-

52 successful team tackles.

4 Super tackles and 3 Super raids.

Inflicted 7 all outs and conceded 8.

They have conceded 172 points in their 6 matches which is a cause of concern. Though these were in the initial matches but they will need to have control on their income and expenditure.

With a strong defence ready to play positively, they can dream of upsetting the Pirates and move up the ladder announcing their candidature for the play-offs.

The yellow brigade has played some seriously entertaining kabaddi in their last 2 games. They would certainly like their bunch of young raiders to seize the opportunity and take over the Pirate ship. Their defence has come back from difficult moments to induce super tackles and avoid all outs. This is a make or break match for the Thalaivas as the result of this match will help them fuel their play off dreams.

Patna Pirates will go into this match with a positive frame of mind, but they will be careful about not gifting points to the opposition. With a good tackling capacity of the Thalaivas we may see the Pirates slowing down the game and rely more on DoD raids. Monu, Sachin are seasoned campaigners and they should be able to score raid points regularly.

Neeraj Kumar and Mohammedreza will be the key to their tackling prowess.

With loads of tie results this season, I would like to predict a “Tie”. But the heart beats for Thalaiavas, though Pirates may just plan a heist.

Patna Pirates will win the match by a close margin.
