U Mumba vs UP Yoddha Key Battles:

#1 Fazel Atrachali Vs Monu Goyat
The captain of U Mumba is a star defender of his side who has by far been the pick of the defenders for U Mumba. He has scored 14 points in 4 matches, including a raid point, and looks set to add more. He did commit some mistakes in the early games but seems to have learnt his lesson and has started to look dangerous as the season progresses. But UP Yoddha have their shining raider Monu Goyat, who has been the only little positive for the side. He looks in good touch, and would have his plans in order to combat the strong U Mumba defence.

#2 Abhishek Singh Vs Nitesh Kumar
Abhishek Singh is a very consistent raider, who is in terrific form and is leading the raid side of U Mumba successfully. He has been the top scorer in all the games for his side. While, Nitesh Kumar the captain of Yoddhas is yet to perform well in this season, he has the potential to stand tall in front of any raider in the World. 

#3 Sandeep Narwal Vs Shrikant Jadhav
Sandeep, who has justified his inclusion in the playing seven as a reliable all-rounder, has looked good in defence and would look to thwart the Shrikant Jadhav threat. U Mumba side are aware of how to utilize the capabilities of the firing all-rounder. Shrikant has looked off the radar a bit, but one good game could turn it all around. 

U Mumba vs UP Yoddha Match Prediction:
Looking at the squads and performances of both the teams, U Mumba look the more compact side, and have their bases covered. With some good raiders, they can break through the defense of the UP Yoddha team. Seeing the dry patch of the players, it will be tough for UP Yoddha to stage a comeback, especially in front of a full-house, cheering for U Mumba, the home side.

U Mumba: Fazel Atrachali (C), Abhishek Singh, Arjun Deshwal, Surender Singh, Harendra Kumar, Sandeep Narwal, Rohit Baliyan
