U Mumba have three matches off the five they have played so far in the season and in the final match of their home leg, they would want to get back to winning ways. Mumba's strength lies in their defence and captain Fazel Atrachali and Co. will have combine well for positive results.
U Mumba have been guilty of making silly errors in the defence and they will want to cut them down. U Mumba's raiding trio of Abhishek Singh, Rohit Baliyan and rookie Arjun Deshwal will also need to up their game if they are to score against a watertight defence like Gujarat.

There's no escaping Fazel ‘Sultan’ Atrachali's fortress when he is out to defend his bounds.
Gujarat Fortunegiants are the only team in season 7 so far who have not lost a single game. Gujarat's defence has always been their strength and this time they have combined that with smart raiding to bag points.
The defence, led by captain Sunil Kumar, has been absolutely brilliant. Sunil's brother Sumit and Parvesh Bhainswal, too, have stood out this campaign. In More G B, Sachin Tanwar and all-rounder Rohit Gulia, Gujarat have developed an excellent attacking threat as well, which is helping their team at crucial junctures.
