Brisbane Lions can cement their place in the top four by continuing their dominance of the Q-Clash against the Gold Coast Suns at the Gabba on Wednesday.

Brisbane Lions Form


The Lions have bounced back from the Richmond loss by winning their last four games, including easily accounting for Collingwood last week.

Their problem heading into the Finals series is that they cannot kick straight, which Brisbane need to against the good sides like Richmond. The struggles has stopped them from going to the next level.

Brisbane Lions Team News


Harris Andrews was benched with a hamstring injury that will see him out for six weeks, so a replacement is desperately needed for the All Australian defender.

Gold Coast Suns Form


The Suns have won one of their last five, as well as drawing with the Essendon Bombers. But the run will likely see them miss the finals.

Gold Coast have improved this season with a few young guns in the side. They have been competitive with most sides they have played, so they are going the right way into next season with the finals out of reach.

They massacred North Melbourne in Round 14 by over 10 goals, and will be strong with the bye in between.

If they play the brand of footy they played against the Kangaroos, then they can push the Lions close - particularly if Brisbane are once again kicking inaccurately.

Brisbane have won four of their last five matches against the Suns, with the loss coming four clashes back by just one goal.

The last two clashes were in 2019, both thrashings in favour of the Lions who were on another level. We are expecting the match to be closer, but the scoreline to still favour the Lions.

Brisbane are 1.28 hot favourites while Gold Coast are 3.60 outsiders. The line has been set for the Lions at -17.5.

Brisbane Lions vs Gold Coast Suns Match Up

The main match up in this fixture looks between Ben King and Darcy Gardiner.

With Harris Andrews out, it is up to Gardiner to become the main man in defence for the Lions, playing on the big bodies of the competition.

It is fair to say King would have had his work cut out coming up against Harris, but Gardiner is still a strong defender and can match strength with the Suns forward.

If King and the Suns can get up and about early in the match, we will have an exciting Q-Clash.
