The last game of the 2020 home-and-away season sees the Collingwood Magpies try to block the Port Adelaide Power from claiming the minor premiership. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:15pm (AEST).
Collingwood’s spot in the top eight is assured, with the only thing to left to play for being their positioning within the lower bracket. A win tonight would give them a ‘home’ final against St Kilda; either in Brisbane, Adelaide or the Gold Coast, whereas a loss means they finish eighth and will have to play West Coast in Perth.
Port Adelaide have locked up the double chance and home qualifying final, but a loss tonight would see them finish second after finishing every other round of the home-and-away season in first – while also setting up a date with Richmond. A win, on the other hand, sees the Power finish first and take on Geelong in the first week.
The Magpies have taken the points in the two most recent meetings between these sides, prevailing by 39 points at Marvel Stadium last year and by 51 at the MCG in 2018. Port had won four in a row prior to that, however. Collingwood have not defeated the Power outside of Melbourne since a 138-point win in 2011.
