Collingwood vs West Coast Eagles Tips


Collingwood are coming off a 28-point loss to Port Adelaide, but their worries mainly lie in the midfield as the game saw Scott Pendlebury suffer a leg injury. 

The Eagles are coming into this clash sitting in seventh spot on the ladder, after claiming an eight-point win over St Kilda. They are in much the better form and are tipped to take the points.

  • Collingwood have lost 6 of their last 8 games against West Coast Eagles
  • West Coast Eagles have won their last 2 games 
  • West Coast Eagles sit 2 games clear of eighth spot

Head-to-Head


West Coast Eagles hold the advantage over Collingwood, winning six of the last eight clashes including the 2018 Grand Final.

Their most recent clash occurred in Round 5 this year and saw the Eagles claim a 27-point win. 

The Pies have won two of last three games, but those wins have been nailbiters and decided by a single point. 

Collingwood Form


The last five games have been something to forget for Robert Harvey’s men. 

The Pies have only claim just one win in their previous five games, with that coming against reiging premiers Richmond Tigers in Round 17. 

Since then, they have suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of Carlton and Port Adelaide in Rounds 18 and 19 respectively.

Those losses ended the Magpies' slim finals hopes.  


Collingwood Team News


Collingwood will be without Scott Pendlebury in the midfield after he suffered a leg injury during the defeat to Port Adelaide, which has ruled him out for the season. 

However, the Pies do welcome back Jeremy Howe, who plays his first game since Round 5 after recovering from a hamstring injury. 

The Pies also have Chris Mayne, Will Hoskin-Elliot and Josh Thomas back after missing their Round 19 clash.

West Coast Eagles Form 


The last five games have provided a mixed bag of results for Adam Simpsons’ Eagles. 

From rounds 15-17, the Eagles lost three games in a row to the Western Bulldogs, Sydney Swans and North Melbourne. 

Since then, the Eagles have turned a corner to stay in the top eight with wins over Adelaide Crows and St Kilda in rounds 18 and 19. 

West Coast Eagles Team News 


The Eagles welcome back Jack Redden as he returns from a leg injury suffered against Sydney in Round 16.

First gamer Mark Hutchings makes way.
