Sydney Swans vs Geelong Cats Tips

The Sydney Swans put in one of the performances of the season so far as they humiliated the West Coast Eagles in a 205-34 win last week. Can they now back that up?

The Geelong Cats battled to a 78-63 win over the Melbourne Demons to down their high-flying opponents in impressive style, but I think the hosts are value.

Head to Head

The Cats hammered the Swans 130-37 when they met in April, with this backing up a stunning 133-52 win back in September 2022. 

In their last 10, the Cats have seven wins, while the Swans have three victories. 

Sydney Swans Form 

The Sydney Swans have not been perfect this year, tasting defeat eight times with just six wins coming in this time. 

A two-game losing run against the St Kilda Saints and Brisbane Lions followed a two-match winning run, with this seeing questions asked about the side. 

However, they answered these criticisms with a stunning 205-34 win over the West Coast Eagles.

While the Eagles have been awful this term, losing 13 of their 14 games, to put 200+ points on a side is a real statement.

The Swans lose Chad Warner to injury with Will Hayward coming in.

Geelong Cats Form 

The Geelong Cats were soundly beaten 110-72 by the Port Adelaide Power in mid-June to see the reigning premiers suffer their seventh defeat of the season. 

However, they bounced back in style as they beat the Demons 78-63 to keep their hopes of securing a finals spot place alive. 

However, with just two wins in seven away games this term they continue to struggle on the road.

The Cats will have to find a way to win without Jeremy Cameron after he was ruled out with a concussion, while Mark O'Connor is injured.

Esava Ratugolea returns from a hamstring issue and Patrick Dangerfield is also back.
