AFL Live Collingwood Magpies vs Western Bulldogs Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 10 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Friday 25 May 2018 online, 19:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs open up Round 10 of the AFL home and away season when they clash at Etihad Stadium on Friday May 25.
The 7.50PM encounter is an important one for both sides, who need to register a win in order to stay in touch as we approach the halfway mark. Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game.
Collingwood claimed their Round 9 encounter against St Kilda by 28 points and can largely thank Jordan de Goey for that result after the exciting forward booted six goals. The Magpies set up the win with a seven goal third term. The win was their fifth from nine appearances this year.
The Western Bulldogs come off a 37 point loss at the hands of the Adelaide Crows and have won four of their nine games this season. The loss against Adelaide came in soggy conditions and the Dogs managed just 2.14 for the game.
The Magpies are ahead of the Bulldogs on the ladder, courtesy of their superior win-loss record, but both sides sit out of the eight with Collingwood in 10th and the Doggies in 13th.
Collingwood head in as slight favourites for the Round 10 encounter and look to have an edge in depth and experience.
Nathan Buckley’s side have been functioning much better inside their forward 50 in recent weeks and have booted 100 points or more in five of their past seven matches.
Jordan de Goey, Jaidyn Stephenson and Josh Thomas are some of the players that have kicked a bag in that time period, while further up the ground, a host of big names are in form, including Brodie Grundy, Steele Sidebottom, Adam Treloar and Scott Pendlebury.
The two sides sit in the top two for total possessions and the Bulldogs Jack Macrae has been a bit of a ball magnet this year, averaging 34 disposals per game, while Lachie Hunter is another that has been finding plenty of it.
Those two will need to continue their form, while Marcus Bontempelli looms as another key player for the Dogs. He booted four goals in the Dogs Round 8 win over Brisbane, but was relatively subdued in the wet last weekend.
