Australian Football League (AFL) Live Melbourne Demons vs Collingwood Magpies match will be kick off on MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Monday 09 june 2014 online, 15:20 AEDT and its broadcast on Fox Footy.
The Collingwood Magpies have won six out of their last seven games including an 86-point drubbing of St Kilda last weekend. Their only losses have been to Fremantle, Geelong and Adelaide (away) and have easily defeated Sydney and North Melbourne. They’re as under the radar as they can be sitting in fourth on the ladder. Melbourne are 15th on the ladder with a 3-7 record. Unlike last year, they’ve been competitive in their losses going with their largest loss being 32-points (after round 2 when they were pumped by the Eagles). That includes Sydney (31 points), Port (20-points), Gold Coast (8 points) which tells us they’ll fight hard.
It was one to forget for Melbourne fans as the Pies cruised to an 83-point win on Queen’s Birthday last year. Dane Swan helped himself to 39 touches and a goal in a best on ground performance. Travis Cloke, Ben Kennedy and Kyle Martin all kicked three goals each in the rout.
