North Melbourne have lost their last 15 matches including their three games at home this season. They have been more competitive in two of the last three, losing to flag favourites Geelong Cats and Melbourne Demons by 1-39 points. 

Collingwood are badly in need of a win. They are tipped to get it by 1-39 points.

  • Collingwood have lost their last 5 matches.
  • Collingwood have seen all 7 matches this season decided by a 1-39 margin this season.

Head to Head

Collingwood have won five out of the last seven meetings between the two sides, including winning last year's only contest by 30 points.

These two sides have only faced each other once at Marvel Stadium since 2013, with North Melbourne coming out 44-point victors in 2019.  

North Melbourne Form

Across a three-week stretch, the winless Kangaroos have shown promising signs despite failing to end their long losing run.

They sent a scare through the Geelong Cats camp in Round 6 and a fortnight later took it right up to league leading Melbourne Demons last weekend. 

In between, the young North Melbourne group failed to turn up against Fremantle at Optus Stadium two weeks ago, losing to the Dockers by 51 points in a 99-48 defeat.

North Melbourne remain winless for the season under new coach David Noble. Can they get win number one against the Pies?
