Collingwood vs Richmond Tips & Betting Preview

The much anticipated start to round two of the AFL season is finally here and we could not have asked for a more heated clash to kick off proceedings.

Collingwood and Richmond have a long time rivalry and after both winning round one, all points are crucial so either team will want to drop a game this early on in the season.

Collingwood demolished the Dogs in their round one clash while the Tigers beat Carlton in what was a closer battle than most thought.

Collingwood vs Richmond Head To Head

The last clash between the two sides was back in July last year where the Tigers came way 32 point winners, but the Pies has beaten them in march by over 40 points, so we should not be underestimating how well they play at the G.

With no crowds, I think the advantage will be in Richmond's favour, the class might just get them over the line.

Collingwood vs Richmond Match Up

The potential match-up between De Goey and Grimes looks enticing with once of the leagues toughest forwards and defenders going head to head.

De Goey is an elite forward and incredibly strong in a one-on-one situation. When he is up and about, he has the ability to go and kick a few goals in a quarter and make the game his own.

Grimes is an All Australian for a reason, playing both tall and small, his contested marking and strong defensive game is what makes him one of the hardest matches in a competition for a a forward.

If Grimes can keep De Goey under wraps, Richmond will likely have stopped their and match winner.
