Australian Football League (AFL) Live Collingwood Magpies vs Carlton Blues match will be kick off at MCG, Melbourne,Sunday 29 june 2014 online, 19:10 AEDT and its broadcast on Fox Footy.
The Pies, currently, are sixth on the ladder, two games behind fifth so a win is vital if they are to maintain their chase for a double chance. They’ve dropped two in a row but do hold a 6-2 record against bottom eight sides this year. Magpies skipper Scott Pendlebury is averaging 31 disposals and just under a goal per game in his last six matches. Carlton is languishing in 13th spot with a 4-9 record having lost their last four games including losses to GWS and Brisbane (yikes!). They are 0-4 against top eight sides this year with an average losing margin of 25-points. Seven of their last nine games are against current finals bound teams. (double yikes!)
These two traditional rivals met on Friday night of round 7 with Collingwood restricting the Blues to just two goals by three-quarter time. The Blues came back in the last term but by then the damage was done as the Pies cruised to a 34-point victory. Dayne Beams kicked four goals, Jamie Elliot three and Jarrod Witts two. For Carlton, Kade Simpson and Andrew Walker had 24 disposals each.
Traditional rivals Carlton and Collingwood have met on 248 occasions, with the Blues leading 125-119 with four draws. The Magpies have won eight of their past ten matches against Carlton. Since 2010, Collingwood are 7-2 (6-3 against the line) vs Carlton. Collingwood is 26-13 at the MCG under Nathan Buckley but only 16-23 against the line in those games. Carlton is 5-10 (5-10 against the line) at the MCG under Mick Malthouse.
