The Brisbane Lions made it two wins from two as they downed the Adelaide Crows 99-93 to maintain the form towards the finals.

Head to Head


The Lions ran out 116-83 winners when the sides last met in April, with this extending their run of victories to five in a row. In their last 10, the Lions have five wins, while the Magpies have five wins. 

Collingwood Form 


The ladder toppers have been superb this season, and they managed to end their two-game losing run with a stunning 109-101 win over the Geelong Cats last week.

This win not only dented the Cats' hopes of making the finals, but it also saw the Magpies edge eight points clear with two games to come. 

While the minor premiership title is all but secured, the Magpies can wrap things up if avoiding defeat here.

Collingwood Team News


The Magpies are without skipper Darcy Moore due to a hamstring issue and Bobby Hill and Jordan De Goey are also ruled out.

Steele Sidebottom and debutant Jakob Ryan come into the Pies side.

Brisbane Lions Form


The Brisbane Lions have been desperately chasing the Collingwood Magpies this term but they still have slim hopes of finishing at the top of the ladder with a big finish and percentage turnaround. 

With only two games to go, the Lions sit eight points behind the Magpies at the summit, with their two defeats to the Melbourne Demons and Gold Coast Suns in July proving costly. 

With four defeats in their last six away games, the Lions are seeking a turnaround in fortunes on the road.

Jack Guntston suffered a knee setback meaning he will not play in this one.

Keidean Coleman comes back into the side after a face injury.
