Sydney Swans vs Collingwood Magpies Preview
It has been an incredible rise from the Collingwood Football Club in season 2020 having finished 17th last year.
No matter what happen from here, they can be happy with their season and where they are headed.
But, that is loser talk and skipper Scott Pendlebury knows how hard these things are to win and will be looking to capitalise while they have the opportunity.
The Pies have a really good mix of experienced veterans, prime midfielders and a young and hungry young brigade.
To win a premiership you must be playing your best football at the tail end of the season and that is exactly where Sydney find themselves.
They too have a really good mix of talent and it has been their pressure which has formed the baseline for their style of play.
We don’t need to go back too far for a head to head between these two sides with Sydney beating the Pies by 27 points at the SCG in round 22.
The Pies laid 53 tackles that afternoon which is down from their average of 62.8 for the season and they lost they went at just 30.8% disposal efficiency inside their forward 50 (down on 45%).
This has all the ingredients for another tightly fought, contested, pressure style of football game and my tip reflects that.
