Collingwood come off a 40-point loss to North Melbourne last Friday night but may have finished a bit closer if it weren’t for a poor start to the game.
West Coast have strung together five wins in a row but their last two have been in unconvincing fashion and they have won just one of their four games in Victoria this year.
Their solitary win in Victoria came against Carlton in Round 17 when they defeated the Blues by seven points. Since that outing they scraped to a six point victory against a wasteful Melbourne at Domain Stadium last weekend.
Besides the location of Saturday’s match, another key factor will be whether or not Collingwood turn up. Much to the frustration of their large army of fans, Nathan Buckley’s side have been one of the most inconsistent sides going around in 2016, even allowing for the fact the disruption that has been caused by injuries.
If the Magpies come to play, they can capitalize in a couple of key areas as they are getting their hands on the football more often than West Coast this year, thanks to the efforts of Adam Treloar and Scott Pendlebury, who both had solid games last weekend.
However, the Eagles are a better clearance side and if the likes of Matt Priddis and Luke Shuey can bring their form over from Perth, the Eagles can get on top.
One player that needs to produce on the road for the Eagles is Josh Kennedy. The competition’s leading goal kicker has kicked just two goals in his last three appearances at the MCG, which is well down on his average of 3.4 goals per game this season.
It will be interesting to see if Collingwood swing the axe after their poor showing last week. Mason Cox and Jordan de Goey are among those that could come in. Nic Naitanui is a chance to make his long awaited return for West Coast and Jonathan Giles would be the man to make way for NicNat.
If Collingwood find something near their best form, they will get over the line.
