Brisbane Lions vs Gold Coast Suns Predictions

It is the 21st Q-Clash. Brisbane are looking to regain a double chance spot in the top four, and have dominated Gold Coast in recent times. The Lions are tipped to cover a -28.5 line.

  • Brisbane Lions have won the last 5 matches against Gold Coast Suns by an average margin of 52 points.
  • Brisbane Lions won the first meeting this year against Gold Coast 124-51 at Metricon Stadium. 
  • Gold Coast Suns last beat Brisbane Lions at the Gabba in 2018 by 5 points. 
  • Gold Coast Suns have won 3 matches out of 11 at the Gabba against Brisbane Lions. 

Head to Head 

Brisbane have rarely stumbled against Gold Coast recently. The Lions have been victorious in the last five matches by an average margin of 52 points. 

The Suns are bidding to prevent a clean sweep against their rivals for the third year in a row. 

Brisbane Lions Form 

Brisbane finds themselves in the middle of a mini-slump in recent weeks after two straight defeats. 

The Lions were stunned by a resurgent St Kilda squad and then they fell to an out of form Richmond Tigers last week, a side they comfortably defeated earlier in the year at home. 

This week gives the Lions a chance to regain composure as well as a crucial top 4 spot as the season enters the final rounds. 

The Lions are still the top side in the league for Inside 50 entries as well as second in Intercepts. 

Brisbane Lions Team News 

Forward Callum Ah Chee makes his return this week against the Suns. Jarrod Berry also comes in.

Tom Berry will have to wait another week to make it back into the starting lineup after being named among the emergencies.

Nakia Cockatoo is in form at VFL level, but is also among the emergencies and awaiting his Lions debut.

Brisbane Lions Team List 

B: Madden, Andrews, Starcevich
HB: Birchall, Lester, Rich
C: McCluggage, Bailey, J.Berry

Gold Coast Suns Form 

The Suns were competitive but lost to premiership hunters the Western Bulldogs last week.
It was a critical game to keep their slim finals chase alive, but now that charge looks increasingly out of reach. 

It is unlike coach Stewart Dew to allow his squad to roll over, especially against cross-town rivals. 

The Suns have emerged as a decent defensive squad, looking more capable of halting opposition momentum. 

Gold Coast Suns Team News

Run and gun specialist Oleg Markov takes his place back in the Suns side after his calf injury healed. 

Veteran Brandon Ellis damaged his hamstring against the Bulldogs and Nick Holman is also ruled out.

Prospect Jeremy Sharp is coming off his career best game, as he was the NAB Rising Star nominee for Round 18. 

Gold Coast Suns Team List 

B: Powell, Collins, Lemmens
HB: Lukosius, Ballard, Bowes
C: Atkins, Miller, Sharp
HF: Corbett, Burgess, Sexton
F: Rankine, King, Ainsworth
FOLL: Graham, Anderson, Swallow
I/C: Fiorini, Flanders, Rowell, Markov
EMG: Davies, Brodie, Jeffrey, Smith
