Australian Football League Collingwood Magpies vs Port Adelaide Power Live Stream Free, AFL 2019 Round 07 Live Stream. Collingwood Magpies vs Port Adelaide Power match will be kickoff at Marvel Stadium, Docklands, Australia, Friday 03 May 2019 online, 7.50pm (AEST) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Magpies remain in Melbourne and have the extra day break after their Anzac Day clash with the Bombers last Thursday, while the Power come across from Adelaide Oval where they’ll look to build on an impressive win against North Melbourne last Friday night.
The Magpies played their part in another Anzac Day thriller against the Bombers in Round 6, eventually coming out on top by four points (73-69) at the MCG. Unfortunately, the main talking point from that great game has been the umpiring, which many Essendon fans made extremely clear they weren’t too happy with it. Scott Pendlebury picked up a record third Anzac Day Medal on the back of a huge 38 disposal performance.
That win over the Bombers improves their record to 4-2 on the season and has them in third spot on the table. Some bad news for the Magpies is the minor injury to big American Mason Cox who will miss this clash with the power, however key duo Ben Reid and Jamie Elliott are set to return to the side.
The Power were able to back up their terrific performance against the Eagles in Round 5 by dispatching the bottom-of-the-table Kangaroos in Round 6. Just as Scott Pendlebury did for the Pies, Travis Boak did for his Power as he too won his third best on ground medal for Anzac Round. Amazingly, it was also on the back of a 38 disposals performance that saw Boak be judged best afield.
The Power have now secured back to back wins for the second time this season, which is enough to have them in fifth spot at 4-2. It’s not all Rosie (pardon the pun) at the Power at the moment however, as they have a number of injury concerns. Co-captain Tom Jonas will miss again this week with a calf complaint, while scans confirmed superstar mid/fwd Robbie Gray fractured his hand against North Melbourne and will now spend at least a month on the sidelines.
The Magpies put an end to the Power’s 2018 campaign when they pumped them by 51 points in Round 22. Steele Sidebottom led the way on that occasion with 33 touches and a goal, closely followed by teammate Taylor Adams (30 touches, one goal). In a way it was pay back for the Magpies after the Power ended their season in 2013 when they defeated them by 24 points in an Elimination Final.
Both teams come into this Round 7 clash with four wins and two losses from their six matches and both teams are coming off team-lifting wins in their last two. The Magpies were too good for the Power in their only battle in 2018, but interestingly, the Power won all four of their clashes prior to that.
The Magpies have opened as three-and-a-half goal favourites which would be justified if it was at the MCG, but it’s at Marvel Stadium which adds a whole other dynamic to this contest. On form, this is a genuine fifty-fifty contest with each team getting equal chances to win, hence why we lean towards the Power to cover a generous spread.
