Winners of their past six matches, the Sydney Swans will look to make it seven straight victories when they take on Collingwood at home this weekend. Join us for what is shaping as a thrilling contest between two genuine flag hopes from 7.40pm AEST.

The defending premiers’ incredible streak was tested last weekend by a gallant Western Bulldogs’ side, but they were simply too strong in the end.

Buoyed by a stellar second-half performance, the Swans went on to notch a 35-point victory and seemingly end all doubts about their chances this year.

However, you could also say the exact same thing about the Magpies last week.

Collingwood’s last start was a 79-point thrashing of rivals Essendon, and if they can carry that form with them into this one, will definitely be considered a chance at toppling the Swans in front of their home crowd.

The Pies are known to play some of their best footy at Sydney, and after an embarrassing 47-point loss at home in Round 9, will be desperate to make amends in this return fixture.

The biggest talking will no doubt be the battle for the midfield, which has been the heart of the Swans’ success throughout this year.

The likes of Daniel Hannebery and Kieren Jack are playing tremendous footy right now, but they will definitely face a tough test when they come up against the likes of Scott Pendlebury and Dane Swan.

Not having Adam Goodes (knee) and Lewis Jetta (shin) hasn’t affected the Swans too much in the past month or so, but given the quality of their opposition, the star duo could well be missed in this one.

Collingwood will no doubt be up for a big one, and given the huge high they’ll no doubt be on after last week, this could be an upset primed for the taking.

Sydney love to kick goals from multiple goal-kickers—meaning that the Pies can’t just try and shut down Kurt Tippett—but their midfield and defense is strong enough to hold off whatever the defending premiers through at them in this one.

I like Sydney to lead up until the final change, where I think the Magpies will give the Swans a taste of their own medicine in a thrilling last-minute upset.

Collingwood by 11 points.
