AFL Live Adelaide Crows vs Collingwood Magpies Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 04 match will be kick off at Adelaide Oval Stadium, North Adelaide, Australia, Friday 13 Apri 2018 online, 19:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Round 4 of the AFL home and away season gets underway when the Adelaide Crows take on Collingwood at the Adelaide Oval on Friday April 13 at 7.50PM AEST.
The Crows head in as firm favourites for the clash and all the action can be seen on 7mate and Fox Footy.
Adelaide have won two of their first three games this season and come off a 49 point win over St Kilda at Etihad Stadium last weekend. In their solitary game at the Adelaide Oval this year, they were 26 point victors over their conquerors from the Grand Final last year, Richmond.
Collingwood chalked up their first victory of the season in Round 3 by holding off a disappointing Carlton to the tune of 24 points. Prior to that they were rolled by GWS and Hawthorn but they have had some excuses due to the injury toll that has plagued their list. They are likely to regain a couple of players at selection.
Nathan Buckley’s side should be able to match Adelaide in some parts of the ground, particularly in the middle where the likes of Steele Sidebottom, Adam Treloar and Scott Pendlebury are finding plenty of it.
The Magpies rank 3rd for average disposals this year and are 6th for contested possessions. Adelaide are 1st and 4th in these measures. In the absence of the Crouch brothers, Rory Sloane and Rory Laird have been able to stand up, while Bryce Gibbs has been a very handy recruit, coming over from Carlton in the off-season.
The difference in this game is likely to be Adelaide’s superior attacking options up forward. Already the Crows are averaging 20 more points per game than the Magpies, who will need to stop Josh Jenkins, Taylor Walker and Eddie Betts.
