Head to Head

Melbourne have won their last three matches against Geelong. The Demons were huge 83-point winners of the Preliminary Final last year at Optus Stadium in the last meeting.

Geelong Cats Form

The Cats are the form side of the competition at the minute having won their last six matches and can go top of the ladder if they can beat the Demons.

Geelong are powerful all across the ground, especially their forward line which one again fired in a 144-32 demolition of North Melbourne last week.
