Melbourne have lost 3 of their past 4 and coming up against Collingwood is not the confidence building matchup they are after. The Magpies had their nine-game unbeaten streak snapped last week and they will be keen to get things back in order heading into the second half of the season. 

One of the most traditional battles on the calendar, we can expect both teams to look to control the ball and fight hard in the contests as this rivalry continues to flare. The game is expected to be slow in long periods and continue the trend of a low-scoring contest.

  • Collingwood have won 6 of the past 8 contests against Melbourne. 
  • Collingwood are ranked second in the AFL with 41.8 Total Clearances in their past 5 matches. 
  • Melbourne rank last with just 33 Total Clearances per game in the past 5 matches. 
  • 7 of the past 8 games between Melbourne and Collingwood have had a Game Total under 165.5 points.

Head to Head 


Collingwood got a 7-point win against Melbourne in the Qualifying Final last season, reigniting the old rival after playing their first finals game against each other since 1989, despite both teams sitting at the top of the table for a good five years now.

The Pies have had a decent dominance over the Demons during their recent peak, with Melbourne getting a 4-point win in the regular season last year, but are losing the battle heavily 6-2 in the head to head record.

The Pies steadied their season after starting the year with 3 losses, losing just their first game in 9 matches, however they played out two draws against Essendon and Fremantle. 

Collingwood had the match against the Western Bulldogs last week but let it slip out of their grasp in the fourth quarter after taking a two-goal lead into the final term the pies allowed the Dogs to kick the final 5 goals of the match, winning the fourth 5.1 - 0.1.

The loss sees the Magpies fall out of the top-eight again. Much the same as their opponents this week, the lack of forward pressure has hurt Collingwood this season, ranked 15th in marks Inside 50 and 17th in Marks Inside 50 Rate.

Melbourne are in the crust of what could be a mid-season dip, losing three of their past 4 matches, going down to Carltong, West Coast and Freo. 

Melbourne had a strong start to the season but have since struggled heavily at the stoppages struggling to get the ball clear ranked second-worst in the AFL in Total Clearences with an average of just 34.6 per game.

Melbourne play the possession game, however it has not been to their advantage this season, they have struggled to move the ball forward and have simply not been able to put enough point on the board. The Demons 954 total points is 12th-best in the AFL and it is due to their lack of quality ball inside 50 where they rank 13th in Marks in the area and Marks Inside 50 Rate where they are 15th. 

Melbourne Team News
