Collingwood Magpies vs Geelong Cats match will be kickoff at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 13 May 2018 online, 15:20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
One of the key games of AFL Round 8 will be when Collingwood take on Geelong at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.
Both sides are evenly poised on the ladder and the action gets underway at 3.20PM. Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game live.
Collingwood come off a narrow win over the Brisbane Lions last weekend by seven points and have won four of their past five. Their only loss in that time period was at the hands of the competition’s pacesetters, Richmond.
They now sit with an overall win-loss record of 4-3, which is the same as Geelong but the Pies are three slots below the 6th placed Cats on the ladder, due to an inferior percentage.
Geelong were comprehensive 63 point winners over GWS last weekend and head in as slight favourites for the MCG encounter. Their A-grade midfield has been in solid form this year and will be bolstered by the likely return of Gary Ablett.
The battle in that part of the ground will be an interesting one. Collingwood top the competition for total disposals and just shade Geelong for average number of contested possessions and clearances.
It will also be interesting to see if the Pies can continue their form on the scoreboard. Their rejuvenated forward line has managed to boot over 100 points in three of the past four games. Jordan De Goey, Jaiydn Stephenson and Josh Thomas have all kicked bags in recent times.
