In Match 28 of Pro Kabaddi 2019, Gujarat Fortunegiants will lock horns with Puneri Paltan, who won the first match in PKL 2019 on Sunday, at Patliputra Sports Complex in Patna. Fortunegiants have won most of their matches so far in Pro Kabaddi 2019, largely due to their star defenders Sunil Kumar and Parvesh Bhainswal. However, their star raider Sachin Tanwar has failed to impress. He has scored a total of 16 raid points and is yet to register a Super 10 for the season. In the previous match, Sachin failed to score any raid points as he was tackled three times out of five attempted raids.

Puneri Paltan did not have the best of starts to PKL 2019 as they lost first three matches. They lost all the matches with a margin greater than or equal to 10 but in their previous match against Patna Pirates their defence was unstoppable. They scored 17 tackle points out of 26 tackles. It was the first match in PKL 2019 where Pune defence had more successful tackles than unsuccessful tackles.
