Richmond Tigers vs Collingwood Predictions


Richmond are tipped to return to the winners list against Collingwood. The Tigers should be too strong for Collingwood at the MCG and win by 1-39 points.

  • Every Collingwood match this season has been decided between the 1-39-point margin. 
  • Richmond’s Dustin Martin has gathered at least 20 disposals in 13 out of 14 matches he has played this season.

Richmond have won six out of the last 10 against Collingwood.  

In the first match back after the COVID-19 forced hiatus of 2020 the two sides could not be separated, drawing 36-36. 

Richmond and Collingwood did meet earlier this year, although not for premiership points. They faced off in round two of the AAMI Community Series at Marvel Stadium, with Richmond winning 80-74. 

Richmond Tigers Form


Richmond have had a fortnight from hell, on the scoreboard and on the injury front. Last week, the Tigers fell to the inconsistent Gold Coast Suns by 10 points at Marvel Stadium. 

The previous weeks, Richmond dished up a worse performance against St Kilda at the MCG, ultimately losing by 40 points to the Saints. 

In the weeks prior to their bye they played a better standard of football. They beat Adelaide Crows, Essendon Bombers and were beaten in the final minute against West Coast Eagles due to a brilliant Josh Kennedy set shot. 

Richmond are currently sitting 9th on the AFL ladder, with eight wins and eight losses after 16 rounds of the 2021 AFL season.
