Brisbane host Port Adelaide in an Elimination Final at the Gabba on Saturday, September 3rd, where they are undefeated in 2023. The Lions are favourites on their home deck. Brisbane tuned up with a 12-point win over St Kilda, despite some inaccurate goal-kicking. They booted 9.18 and will need to convert better against the Power.
Both sides won 17 home and away games, with Brisbane claiming the second spot thanks to a superior percentage. Port won 13 straight before dropping four in a row. They closed out the regular season with three wins, including a 31-point victory over Richmond.
Connor Rozee and Zak Butters had 30+ disposals in that match, while goals came from various sources. They face a strong Brisbane midfield featuring Lachie Neale, Jarrod Berry and Hugh McCluggage.
This game could be won and lost inside the Lions' forward 50. Brisbane has no shortage of targets with Joe Daniher, Charlie Cameron, Eric Hipwood and Cam Rayner presenting. The winner advances to a Preliminary Final, while the loser plays the St Kilda-GWS winner in a sudden-death semi-final.
Brisbane Lions vs Port Adelaide Power Head-to-Head
The Brisbane Lions and Port Adelaide Power have developed quite a rivalry over the past few years. Looking at their head-to-head record over the last 3 seasons shows just how competitive this matchup has been. The Power have managed to get the better of the Lions during this stretch, winning 2 out of the 3 contests between the sides. However, Brisbane did manage to claim one victory over Port Adelaide in their most recent showdown last year. With the Lions entering this clash in strong form, they'll be eager to level the ledger against their interstate foes. Their fans will certainly be hoping the Gabba crowd can give them the edge they need to take down the Power.
Brisbane Lions Performance
🟥🟩🟩🟩🟩 The Brisbane Lions have been in stellar form over their last 5 matches, managing an impressive 4 wins against just 1 loss. After a slow start to the season, the Lions have found their groove and have been able to string together some very strong performances. Their only blemish came in a tight loss to a formidable opponent, but Brisbane bounced back swiftly with commanding victories in their next three contests. With their confidence high after this successful run, the Lions will come into this clash against Port Adelaide full of belief that they can continue their winning ways.
Port Adelaide Power Performance
🟩🟩🟩🟥🟥 Port Adelaide have put together a solid record in their last 5 games, posting 3 wins alongside 2 losses. Despite some ups and downs, the Power have shown they can match it with the best teams on their day. Their two recent defeats both came against top sides in tight contests that could have gone either way. Port will take heart from the fact that when they are switched on, they have the class to overcome anyone. However, they will need to find consistency if they are to get the better of in-form Brisbane this time around. The Power will be eager to find their groove once again after a rollercoaster few weeks.
📋 Players to watch:
- Darcy Wilmot has had 15+ disposals in his past 12 matches.
- Hugh McCluggage has had 20+ disposals in his past 10 games.
- Connor Rozee has had 25+ disposals in eight of his past nine matches.
- Lachie Neale has averaged 27 disposals in his past four matches.
- Zak Butters is averaging 27.5 disposals this season.
- Lincoln McCarthy has kicked eight goals in his past five matches against Port.
- Joe Daniher has kicked seven goals in his past three clashes with the Power.
⚡ Match Facts:
- Looking at the head-to-head record between these two teams, it's been very competitive over the last 3 seasons with Port Adelaide winning 2 of the 3 contests. However, Brisbane did get a victory in their most recent meeting last year, so they'll come into this clash with confidence.
- Examining both teams' recent form, Brisbane have been in stellar shape winning 4 of their last 5 matches. Their only loss came in a tight contest against a strong opponent in Gold Coast. Meanwhile, Port Adelaide have been more inconsistent of late, posting a 3-2 record over their past 5 outings.
- Based on these trends, Brisbane seems to have the edge coming into this matchup given their strong recent run of form. Playing at home should also work in the Lions' favor.
💡 Match Prediction:
The Lions' winning streak should continue in front of their home fans. Their midfield stars like Lachie Neale can control the tempo of the match and set up a comfortable victory to maintain top spot on the ladder.
I expect Brisbane's quality to shine through in this one. Their midfield has been dominating games, and their forwards are dynamic. Port Adelaide will put up a good fight, but the Lions should have too much firepower.
