Adelaide Crows vs West Coast Eagles Tips


West Coast need to win to keep their finals dreams alive as they are on the brink of their season ending early if they end up losing four in a row.

Adelaide are also bidding not to lose four in a row, but the Crows are tipped for defeat at home.

  • Both sides have lost their last 3 matches.
  • Adelaide Crows were beaten by more than 10 goals against Essendon Bombers last week.
  • West Coast Eagles have won their last 4 matches against Adelaide Crows.

Head to Head


West Coast have dominated their recent clashes with the Crows, winning their last four meetings.

The last time they met at Adelaide Oval was in 2019 where West Coast came away two goal winners.

Adelaide Crows Form


The Crows are travelling really poorly at the moment, dropping their last three games and being disgraced by the Essendon Bombers last week.

They were competitive against the Brisbane Lions the week prior for three quarters, although ultimately they did lose.

That type of form brought to this match would see them hard to beat as West Coast are in just as bad of form, leaving them a golden opportunity to get a confidence boosting win.

With Taylor Walker back in the side, they have some power up forward and a target that they desperately missed last week against the Bombers.

Adelaide Crows Team News


Andrew McPherson, Darcy Fogarty, Elliott Himmelberg, Taylor Walker and Tom Lynch all come back into the Crows side.

Tom Doedee is ruled out with injury.

West Coast Eagles Form


This is a must-win game for the Eagles if they want to keep their finals dreams alive as they are competing with six other teams for two spots.

West Coast are still inside the top eight, but only just handing onto that spot after a run of three defeats.

To cement their spot and get their season back on track for the fifth and sixth spots, they need to put away teams like the Crows.

If they drop this, they can kiss the finals goodbye. Which Eagles side will we see?

West Coast Eagles Team News


Brendon Ah Chee and Tom Barrass are both out for the Eagles.

The extended squad includes the recalled Bailey Williams, Connor West, Harry Edwards, Mark Hutchings and Xavier O’Neill.
