Brisbane Lions vs Richmond Tigers Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 16 Match Preview
⏰ 29 June 2023 - 19:20 AEST
🏟 Stadium - GABBA Stadium
The Lions emerged victorious away from home during Round 15, triumphing over St Kilda by a commanding 28-point margin at Marvel Stadium. Eric Hipwood impressively netted four goals, while Harris Andrews showcased his defensive prowess with nine intercept marks in addition to his 21 disposals. As Thursday night's match-up at the GABBA approaches, Brisbane stands as a formidable opponent, having remained unbeaten in their home-ground encounters throughout 2023. Their flawless record of six wins includes noteworthy victories against Collingwood and Melbourne.
Under McQualter's leadership, the Tigers have achieved three victories out of their last four matches, with their lone loss coming by a slim 10-point margin against Port Adelaide. However, it is difficult to envision his team emerging triumphant and making amends for the heartbreaking two-point defeat suffered in last year's Elimination Final against the Lions at the GABBA.
In the lead-up to the week off, Richmond secured a 20-point win against St Kilda in their Round 14 clash. The first half of the game showcased a fast-paced and high-scoring spectacle, but the scoring slowed down significantly in the second half due to unfavourable weather conditions. Trent Cotchin contributed two goals and made an impact with 29 disposals, marking his momentous 300th game. Additionally, Tim Taranto (38 disposals) and Dustin Martin (35 disposals) displayed their proficiency in securing possession. Coming off the bye, Richmond aims to become one of the rare few teams to secure victory after the break this season. Among the 12 teams that had a bye leading up to this week, only two managed to win in the subsequent round. If the Tigers are to emerge victorious in their away fixture, this trio of players will need to deliver outstanding performances. A win would enable Andrew McQualter's team to stay within reach of the top eight. As Round 16 approaches, Richmond currently sits in 12th position, a mere half a game behind 8th-placed Adelaide.
