The opening Sunday AFL fixture for Round 13 sees Adelaide host Geelong at the Adelaide Oval.

Former Crows captain Taylor Walker is set to line-up in his 200th game in front of a home crowd and they'll desperately be trying to draw a spark from that milestone as the win-less Adelaide take on the Cats who seem to be timing their finals run to perfection.

Geelong Form & Team News

The Cats are starting to purr in 2020 where following a somewhat unlucky Round 9 defeat in the west against the Eagles, have won their last three fixtures and two have been by 10 goal margins which included delivering a Round 12 thrashing to the top of the table Port Adelaide.

At 138.5%, they have clearly the best percentage in the AFL which is a further reflection of their recent dominance.

Adelaide vs Geelong Match Up

Although the Cats are safe with a strong percentage which could see them just take their foot of the pedal a shade here, it would be one of the more sensational upsets of the modern AFL era if the win-less Crows topple them this Sunday.

It doesn't look a star-studded or deep Geelong line-up on paper, especially compared to their team from a decade ago, but their outstanding development has seen the likes of Sam Menegola, Jed Bews and Mark O'Connor rise from fringe prospects to very important role-players, so now the question on their depth over recent seasons seems to have been addressed and there's now a better spread.

Adelaide can't wait for a horror 2020 to end and even via their 57-point defeat last week, they were a little flattered on the scoreboard there as the Bulldogs were quite wasteful and inaccurate for good periods of that match.

It doesn't get any easier this Sunday against the Cats who are not only posting big scores of late but also aren't conceding much in defense and with a genuine look at a top two finish now, they'll be aiming to continue their strong run on Sunday with a big win.

Verdict

Even if they're not at top gear, Geelong can still cover what looks a rather low line against the win-less Crows.

This looks the game to rest Patrick Dangerfield more in the forward line & he looks due to hit the scoreboard.
