Hawthorn vs Port Adelaide Prediction

Hawthorn and Port Adelaide will face off at Marvel Stadium on Saturday for Shaun Burgoyne's 400th match.

It is unlikely to be a winning anniversary, however, with the Power tipped to win.

  • Port Adelaide have won each of its last 9 games as favourite
  • Port Adelaide have won 4 of their last 5 matches
  • Port Adelaide are unbeaten against sides outside of the top 4 on the ladder

Head to Head

Hawthorn lead the head to head count 3-2 from their last five clashes, but the last 10 have been shared equally.

The last clash went the way of the Power at Adelaide Oval last year, where they came away 10-point winners.

Hawthorn Form

Hawthorn managed to claim victory last week against GWS Giants in what was an upset result.

Having also beaten Sydney Swans three games back, the Hawks have won two of their last three matches.

They started off the season in dismal form, but have rejuvinated themselves to be in a position where they have an outside chance of making the finals.

Hawthorn Team News

Chad Wingard, Denver Grainger-Barras and Will Day are all injured.

Conor Nash and Damon Greaves come into the side.

Port Adelaide Form

Port Adelaide come off the back of two wins against the Gold Coast Suns and the Syndey Swans, who they beat the Swans by 10 points last week.

They are beginning to look like flat track bullies, beating up on the sides that are not inside the four. 

They are still 0-4 against those inside the four but striking at 100% this season against sides below them in the ladder.

One change sees Riley Bonner return for the Power with Dylan Williams and Martin Frederick omitted.
