Collingwood vs Geelong Cats Predictions


Collingwood had every opportunity to punish Port Adelaide last week, but again came up short in what has been a grim season thus far.

Geelong recording their third win on the trot last week against Gold Coast. With memories of last year's mauling, the Pies are tipped to lose by 40+ points.

  • Geelong Cats have won 9 of their last 10 matches in Victoria.
  • Collingwood have only won 2 of their 10 matches this season.
  • Geelong Cats won by 68 points in the last head-to-head in the finals last year.

Head to Head


Geelong lead their recent head to head record 4-2 after destroying Collingwood last year by more than 11 goals in a 100-32 victory in the finals.

Collingwood had won the home and away season fixture 57-35.

Collingwood Form


The Pies list is still better than many teams in the AFL system, but they have some serious problems mounting up.

Collingwood have won just the two of their 10 matches this season and can't seem to hold a lead.

They lost another match in the last quarter last week against Port Adelaide, going down 59-58 in heartbreaking fashion.

Collingwood Team News


Beau McCeery was scanned during the week and has pulled his calf so he will miss up to a fortnight of footy.

Callum Brown, Taylor Adams and Josh Thomas have also been ruled out through injury. 

Trent Bianco has been handed an AFL debut and Brayden Sier and Jack Madgen also come in for the Magpies.

Jamie Elliot is only a fortnight away from coming back and will be a boost for the Pies.

Geelong Cats Form


Geelong looked a little off their game around a month ago, unconvincingly beating North Melbourne and losing to the Sydney Swans.

But the Cats have bounced back hard with wins against Richmond Tigers, St Kilda and Gold Coast Suns 91-57 last week.

Jeremy Cameron has been instrumental to their resurgence down forward, while both Isaac Smith and Shaun Higgins have played big parts too.

With Patrick Dangerfield still to come back into the side, Geelong are beginning to start their upwards trajectory towards finals.

Mitch Duncan will miss this week due to concussion protocols, while Cam Guthrie is out with a shoulder injury. Max Holmes comes in.
