Hawthorn are shadow of their best, but up against a depleted Adelaide side they only need to show a glimpse of their best footy to be winning on Tuesday night.

Hawthorn Form & Team News

Although Hawthorn have dropped their last four matches, the last two have been really competitive matches against Essendon and Port Adelaide.

With the finals a near impossible occurrence, the Hawks are still in desperate need of another win with their last coming in Round 9 against the Blues.

The Hawks are expecting Jaeger O'Meara, Isaac Smith and James Frawley all back into the side, giving them some quality senior experience that they have needed.

Sadly, again, Jon Patton went down with injury and although not ruled out for the remainder of the season, he is unlikely to be playing this week or next.

*Round 14 team listed with Round 15 teams unavailable:

FB: B. Hardwick, M. Hartley, T. Scully
HB: W. Day, S. Frost, J. Ceglar

Adelaide Form & Team News

Adelaide did not lose the game in the first quarter against the Geelong Cats in Round 13, but they never looked liked winning and struggled to gain a set shot inside their forward 50m.

The Crows are just not up to AFL quality this season and have some of their better players set to leave the club next season.

The one thing they have going for them next year are high draft picks, including two first rounders and two second rounders. But the winless Crows have to get through the final weeks of the season first.

Daniel Talia is expected to make his way back into the side, but Brad Crouch and Tom Lynch are both still questionable to be playing.

*Round 14 team listed with Round 15 teams unavailable:

FB: L. Brown, K. Hartigan, H. Schoenberg
HB: D. McKay, J. Butts, B. Smith
C: J. Kelly, M. Crouch, R. Sloane
HF: C. Jones, T. Walker, S. McAdam
FF: T. Stengle, E. Himmelberg, B. Crocker
FOL: R. O'Brien, B. Keays, R. Laird
I/C: L. Murphy, M. Poholke, D. Fogarty, L. Sholl

Hawthorn vs Adelaide Head To Head

Hawthorn have won four of their last five clashes with Adelaide's only win during that period coming in April 2017.

The last time they met, Adelaide were not this bad and still went down by over five goals at the Adelaide Oval. They are going to need to play a super brand of footy to be beating the Hawks this week.

Hawthorn vs Adelaide Betting Odds

Hawthorn are the strong favourites at $1.39 while Adelaide are the $3.00 outsiders.

The line has been set for Hawthorn at -15.5.

Hawthorn vs Adelaide Match Up

An interesting match up in this game will be between Reilly O'Brien and Ben McEvoy.

McEvoy is a great swingman, being able to play both ends of the ground as well as prove a competitive ruckman.

O'Brien is one of the few Adelaide players that is improving every week and goes at every contest 110%.

This will be another learning curve for the Adelaide ruckman, likely having to go at a high work rate to run with McEvoy. But this should be an interesting battle around the stoppages.
