Collingwood Magpies vs Adelaide Crows Predictions and Betting Tips
🏈 AFL Round 15 Match Preview
⏰ 25 June 2023 - 13:10 AEST
🏟 Stadium - Melbourne Cricket Ground
The triumph for Adelaide witnessed their ascent into the top eight, and they will strive to establish their position as we approach the crucial phase of the season. However, their endeavour won't be without challenges, as they face a formidable Collingwood side perched atop the league standings and exhibiting great resilience. Both teams enter Round 14 following a break, yet their recent performances prior to the hiatus couldn't be more contrasting. Collingwood, in a highly anticipated match on King's Birthday at the MCG, suffered only their second defeat of the season, narrowly succumbing to Melbourne by a mere four points in front of a colossal crowd.
The Magpies' loss to Melbourne revealed a lack of their customary determination. While Tom Mitchell amassed an impressive 30 disposals, he stood as one of the few bright spots in an otherwise lacklustre performance. Additionally, their forwards struggled to make an impact, managing a meagre tally of only eight goals throughout the entire match. Conversely, Adelaide dominated a struggling West Coast Eagles team, pummeling them by a staggering 122 points. The standout moment in that one-sided affair was the extraordinary display by their former captain, Taylor Walker, who magnificently booted 10 goals.
Interestingly, the Crows' sole defeat at their home ground this season occurred in this encounter. Conversely, their away record in 2023 has been far from impressive, with just one victory in five attempts. That solitary triumph came in a closely contested match against Hawthorn. Considering these circumstances, it seems unlikely that their away record will improve in this particular game, as Collingwood is poised to secure the four points. Anticipate a rejuvenated Collingwood side emerging with vigour, making it an arduous task for the Crows at the MCG. These two teams clashed earlier in the season at the Adelaide Oval, resulting in a narrow one-point victory for the Magpies.
Collingwood Magpies Performance
Collingwood experienced a state of shock as their impressive eight-game winning streak came to an end with a narrow 66-62 defeat against the Melbourne Demons. Undoubtedly, facing the Demons on their home turf was always going to be a challenging task. While Collingwood had set their sights on securing a victory in this crucial encounter, there is no disgrace in being defeated by a team of such exceptional calibre.
Presently, Collingwood aim to uphold their flawless home record, having secured triumph in all seven of their previous games in front of their dedicated supporters. This impressive achievement solidifies their status as a formidable force when playing on their own turf.
The Adelaide Crows enter this match on the heels of a truly remarkable performance, as they subjected the West Coast Eagles to a humiliating 174-52 defeat. This resounding victory allowed them to swiftly move past their previous 112-87 loss against the Gold Coast Suns. Nevertheless, challenges persist for the Crows.
The team has encountered significant struggles in their away matches, having suffered three consecutive defeats on the road. Their performances outside the comforts of their home ground have failed to impress. While their recent triumph provides a boost in morale, they are fully aware that an even greater effort will be required to secure a victory this week.
📋 Players to watch:
- Collingwood has emerged victorious in their previous seven matches against Adelaide, maintaining a dominant streak.
- In their recent encounters, Ben Keays has been consistently impressive, averaging 26 disposals over his last three games against Collingwood.
- Tom Mitchell, known for his exceptional midfield performances, has achieved 25 or more disposals in his past five matches. Moreover, he has showcased outstanding form with 30 or more disposals in his last two games.
- Jordan Dawson has been a standout player in recent weeks, displaying remarkable consistency with an average of 31 disposals over the past three matches.
- Nick Daicos, in his debut season, has been an influential presence on the field, averaging an impressive 33 disposals.
- Rory Laird, a reliable performer for Adelaide, has maintained a high standard with an average of 33 disposals in his last three encounters against the Magpies.
- Taylor Walker, renowned for his goal-scoring abilities, has been in fine form, booting eight goals in his past three games against the Magpies.
⚡ Match Facts:
- In their recent encounters, Collingwood has emerged victorious in the last seven matches against Adelaide. The Magpies currently hold an impressive win-loss record of 11-2, while Adelaide stands at 7-6.
- Unfortunately for the Crows, their performances at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) have been far from successful, with six consecutive losses at this venue, including the heartbreaking defeat in the 2017 Grand Final.
- In contrast, Collingwood has showcased their dominance at the MCG, securing victory in 17 out of their last 19 matches played at the renowned stadium.
💡 Match Prediction
Collingwood's impressive winning streak of eight matches came to a halt as they suffered a defeat against Melbourne. Despite the narrow loss, it was a highly competitive match, and the Magpies are unlikely to be disheartened. They have a favourable opportunity to bounce back in their upcoming game against the Adelaide Crows. The Crows, on the other hand, entered this match on a positive note after a remarkable victory over the West Coast Eagles, where they amassed a substantial 174 points. However, facing Collingwood presents a much tougher challenge, and the Crows are expected to struggle against the Magpies, who have emerged victorious in the past seven encounters between the two teams.
