UP vs DEL Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the 40th match of the Pro Kabbadi League Season 8, 2021 where UP Yoddha takes on Dabang Delhi KC. UP Yoddha have performed way below their standards despite having the services of the record-breaker Pardeep Narwal. They have been highly dependent on him, which hasn’t worked for them, as they have managed just a single victory in six outings so far this season. The Yoddhas suffered a 39-33 defeat in their previous encounter against Tamil Thalaivas which saw them slip down to the ninth spot in the points table. On the other hand, Dabang Delhi KC are on a roll this season and have showcased why they are the best performing side by holding the second spot in the points table. They are riding on the back of their star performer Naveen Kumar, who has been exceptional so far in the tournament, registering a super 10 in all six games. Delhi are the only team so far this season who are undefeated and are coming into this game after a nail-biting 36-35 win over Telugu Titans.
