Australian Football League Live Collingwood Magpies vs Carlton Blues Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 07. Collingwood Magpies vs Carlton Blues match will be kickoff at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 06 May 2017 online, 14:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Tradition returns to the MCG this weekend when the two old rivals, Collingwood and Carlton, line up in Saturday afternoon football at the MCG.
While the two sides feature in the lower rungs of the ladder, they both come off impressive wins, and this should be a classic as there is plenty at stake.
First bounce is at 2.10PM and the action can be seen on Fox Sports. AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
Both sides have a win-loss record of 2-4 but won impressively in Round 6. Collingwood toppled the previously unbeaten Geelong by 29 points, while Carlton continued Sydney’s miserable season, accounting for the 2016 Grand Finalists by 19 points.
Despite the similarities, Collingwood head in as strong favourites in the head to head betting with CrownBet and have probably been the more consistent of the two this season.
The Magpies have certainly been closer in their losses with their biggest losing margin just 19 points, while they have controlled large portions of play in those games.
Nathan Buckley’s side feature in the top four of the competition in a number of key measures, including average disposals, contested possessions and uncontested possessions. Carlton are in the bottom three for those measures. Collingwood are also the better clearance side.
If the Magpies can be as efficient with their use as what they were against Geelong, Buckley’s side should be hard to beat. Scott Pendlebury and Adam Treloar loom as key players, while Brodie Grundy should have some influence in the ruck.
Carlton will look to continue their improvement from last weekend. After dropping their Round 5 clash to Port Adelaide, the Blues responded in style by accounting for the Swans and it was their forwards that were finally able to capitalize on some solid work further up the ground.
Matthew Wright booted four for the Blues, while Sam Docherty created plenty of play from halfback. Those two will need big games once again, while Marc Murphy, Patrick Cripps and Kade Simpson will at least need to match the likes of Treloar and Pendlebury in the middle.
