The winner is guaranteed a Preliminary Final spot and the loser gets a second chance next week. Playing at home, I'm tipping Port Adelaide to win this match and go straight through to the Preliminary Final.

  • Port Adelaide have won their last 6 matches
  • Geelong Cats have lost 2 of their last 3 matches
  • Geelong Cats were beaten last week after the final siren

Head to Head


Geelong currently lead their head to head race 7-3 from the last 10 clashes between these sides.

The Cats beat Port Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval in June in the only meeting this season. They came away 21 point winners after a big second half.

Port Adelaide Form


The Power are a team hitting form at the right time, beating the Western Bulldogs in an absolute thriller last week to wrap up second spot on the ladder.

They still appear to lack something that is stopping them from being that dominant force of the AFL, but they hold firm premiership chances once again.

Chalie Dixon is key as the forward is the most intimidating man in the AFL. Last week he was not at his best but at home in a big game is Dixon's time to shine.

Port Adelaide Team News


Port Adelaide make one change with Mitch Georgiades ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Power regain forward Orazio Fantasia to make up for the loss.

Geelong Cats Form 


Geelong have been a little wobbly in the last three weeks, suffering a loss to GWS Giants, a win over St Kilda and a loss after the siren to Melbourne Demons last week.

It was a heartbreaking defeat to the Dees that cost Geelong the minor premiership and a home final.

They will need to get their spirits up after last week to bounce back at Port Adelaide's home ground, but have already recorded a good win over this Power side earlier in the season at the Adelaide Oval.

Geelong Cats Team News


Zac Tuohy has failed in his race to be fit, but Mitch Duncan does return.

Shaun Higgins has been named among the emergencies along with Max Holmes, who was dropped to make way for Duncan.
