Fremantle Dockers vs Geelong Cats Predictions


Both sides coming into the match in winning form. Geelong have put together two in a row after their loss to Brisbane in Round 15 and should have enough to edge out the Dockers in Perth.
 
  • Fremantle Dockers have won 3 of their last 4 matches
  • Geelong Cats have won 8 of their last 9 matches
  • Geelong Cats have won 5 of the last 6 clashes with Fremantle Dockers

Head to Head


Geelong lead their head to head count 5-1 from the last six meetings with the ony loss coming in 2019 by almost six goals at Optus Stadium.

They played here last year and Geelong did come away easy winners in wet conditions.

Fremantle Dockers Form


Freo destroyed Hawthorn last week in an impressive display of footy, putting themselves inside the top eight and looking a real chance to play finals footy.

The Dockers will be looking to soldify this position with a win over Geelong, and proving that they are a team to watch ahead of the finals.

Despite three wins in the last four matches, their head to head record against Geelong does not sit in their favour.

But they are a group with a lot of confidence gained from the last month and they can give the Cats a game.

Fremantle Dockers Team News


Fremantle make one change for Thursday night's match with Ethan Hughes returning from a shoulder injury in place of Brandon Walker.

Geelong Cats Form


After a disappointing display against the Brisbane Lions in Round 15, the Cats have bounced back with two wins over both Essendon and Carlton.

The Cats are simply in flying form, winning eight of their last nine matches, but the challenge is now facing a very in-form team away from home.

If they can win this, you could just about mark them down as a top four certainty unless something drastically goes wrong over the next month.

Lachie Henderson is out due to personal reasons, and Max Holmes has also been left out by Geelong.

Joel Selwood returns having been managed last week, while Luke Dahlhaus and Quinton Narkle are recalled.

Key forward Jeremey Cameron remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.
