Adelaide Crows host Geelong Cats at the Adelaide Oval with the winless hosts looking to pull off a majir upset.

Former Crows captain Taylor Walker is set to line-up in his 200th game in front of a home crowd and winless Adelaide will desperately be trying to draw a spark from that milestone. They take on a Cats side which is timing their finals run to perfection.

Adelaide Crows Form


Adelaide are anchored at the bottom of the AFL ladder with a 0-12 record so far in 2020 and haven't really looked close to a victory in the process.

Although they made a slight improvement in attack by scoring eight goals against the Western Bulldogs in Round 12, they conceded 111-points in the process.

Geelong Cats Form


The Cats are starting to purr in 2020. Following a somewhat unlucky Round 9 defeat in the west against the Eagles, Geelong have won their last three fixtures and two have been by 10 goal margins which included delivering a Round 12 thrashing to the top of the table Port Adelaide.

At 138.5%, they have clearly the best percentage in the AFL, which is a further reflection of their recent dominance.

Adelaide Crows vs Geelong Cats Match Up

Although the Cats are safe with a strong percentage which could see them just take their foot of the pedal a shade here, it would be one of the more sensational upsets of the modern AFL era if the winless Crows topple them this Sunday.

It doesn't look a star-studded or deep Geelong line-up on paper, especially compared to their team from a decade ago, but their outstanding development has seen the likes of Sam Menegola, Jed Bews and Mark O'Connor rise from fringe prospects to very important role-players. Now the question on their depth over recent seasons seems to have been addressed and there's now a better spread.

Adelaide can't wait for a horror 2020 to end and even in their 57-point defeat last week, they were a little flattered on the scoreboard as the Bulldogs were quite wasteful and inaccurate for good periods of that match.

It doesn't get any easier against the Cats who are not only posting big scores of late but also aren't conceding much in defence. With a genuine look at a top two finish now, they'll be aiming to continue their strong run with a big win.

Verdict

Even if they're not at top gear, Geelong can still cover what looks a rather low line against the winless Crows.

This looks the game to rest Patrick Dangerfield more in the forward line and he is worth a first goalscorer bet.
