Match Preview

Let’s catch up with the performances of Collingwood Magpies and Port Adelaide Power this season so far.

The Magpies are on an incredible run of a nine-match winning streak. They beat Essendon by 80-76 points last week with a goal after the siren from Jamie Elliott.

Seven of their nine wins have been by 12 or fewer points. Collingwood Magpies are currently at 4th on the ladder, 4 points (a win) behind the ladder-leader Geelong.

Elsewhere, the Port Adelaide Power fell agonizingly short last week against Geelong Cats, losing by 94-106 points. Their hopes for the finals were dealt a huge blow with that defeat. They are at 11th on the ladder, 8 points behind the 8th place Bulldogs.

The Power will try to avoid their third defeat in a row. They lost to the defending premiers Melbourne by 83-69 points in Round 18.

Collingwood vs Port Adelaide Prediction

Collingwood Magpies have won nine matches on the trot. Their last 4 wins have been under 6 points. It would be another close encounter against the Power on Saturday afternoon.

On the other hand, Port Adelaide lost three of their last four matches. They lost to the defending premiers Melbourne by 83-69 in Round 18 and top of the ladder Geelong by 94-106 last week.

However, the Port Adelaide Power are 3-0 in the previous three h2h meetings against the Magpies. It would give them a lot of confidence.

We think Collingwood’s winning streak and home support would prove too difficult for the Power. Our pick is Collingwood Magpies to bag another close victory.
