Adelaide Crows vs Collingwood Predictions


Collingwood will be in Adelaide after getting permission to avoid quarantine. But I'm tipping it won't be a happy trip to South Australia.

Both sides are on bad runs of form, but home advantage could be key in this meeting with the Crows value to win by 1-39 points.

  • Adelaide Crows have won 3 of their 5 home matches this season.
  • Adelaide Crows beat ladder leaders Melbourne Demons in their last home game.
  • Collingwood have lost 8 of their last 9 matches.
  • All 11 Collingwood games this season have had a 1-39 point winning margin.

Head to Head


Collingwood lead the head to head 5-4 from the last 10 meetings with the Adelaide Crows. 

The Pies have won the last three head to heads since a 103-103 draw in 2017.

Adelaide Crows Form


Adelaide Crows pulled off the upset of the season when last at home as tehy defeated ladder leaders Melbourne Demons two weeks ago.

The Crows were also more competitive last week than the 111-83 scoreline suggests in their defeat to Richmond Tigers in Sydney.

Adelaide led by 20 points in the opening quarter and trailed by just two points at half-time. 

But they fell short in the second-half and slipped to a seventh defeat of the season.

Adelaide Crows Team News


Adelaide Crows will be without Sam Berry, who misses out due to concussion protocols after a knock last week against Richmond Tigers.

Ronin O'Connor takes his place in the Crows team.

Collingwood Form


Collingwood slipped to a ninth defeat of the season as they lost 61-51 to Geelong Cats at the MCG last weekend.

The scoreline flattered the Pies somewhere with three late goals getting them to within touching distance of the Cats, who were comfortable throughout.

It was a third successive loss for Nathan Buckley's side, who were beaten 72-42 by Sydney Swans and 59-58 by Port Adelaide.

Collingwood haven't been blown away in any match this season with all 11 games having a 1-39 point margin.

Collingwood Team News


The struggling Pies have even more problems with ruckman Brodie Grundy ruled out with a neck injury.

Taylor Adams is also an absentee after picking up a knee injury, and there is no Mason Cox either.

The Pies are boosted by the return to action of Jamie Elliot, who has been sidelined with a leg injury for a number of weeks. 

Josh Thomas also makes his comeback, and Max Lynch and Jay Rantall are other ins. Lynch will perform the ruck duties.
