Geelong hosts Port Adelaide at Metricon Stadium on Friday night. Both teams come into the game off big wins, with Geelong making St Kilda look like pretenders and Port Adelaide bringing down the flying colours of Richmond.

Port Adelaide are the deserved favourites in this match, but the Cats don't have to play in front of a hostile crowd in Adelaide. Could that be the advantage they need?

Geelong Form & Team News

The Cats are a team that look polished and ready to take on the finals series after bringing down St Kilda by 10 goals last week in what was a display of men vs boys.

Geelong were defeated by another form team in West Coast in Perth in the previous game and the crowd was well against them that day. Yet they fought hard to only be beaten in the last 10 minutes of the game.

You just wonder, how much of a toll all this match play and travelling is taking on the players as they come up against the top of the table team in Port Adelaide.

Port Adelaide Form & Team News

Port Adelaide are looking to send another huge message to the competition this week after such a strong performance against Richmond last week.

They have had a longer break than Geelong and will be looking to take advantage of that with another quick start, which set them up for victory last week.

If they can re-produce the same effort from the win over the Tigers, there are very few teams left in the competition that will be able to take it up to these boys.
