The Sydney Swans finish their 2020 season off trying to trip up the top four-bound Geelong Cats at Metricon Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 3:35pm (AEST).
It was never going to be a successful year for Sydney in 2020, but they’ll be disappointed with a couple they’ve let slip over the last few weeks. They had Carlton on the ropes two weeks ago before switching off and succumbing to a five-point loss, before running out of gas against the Lions last week to go down by 32 after trailing by just two in the last quarter.
It’ll be a tough ask to turn it around against the Cats, however, who’ll be hungry after they were given a touch-up by the Tigers last week. Still boasting the competition’s best percentage, Geelong will be a force come finals time, but they’ll want to blast out the cobwebs against their lowly opponents this afternoon.
The Cats have built themselves a three-game winning streak against an opponent who’s traditionally given them lost of trouble over the years. Last year they notched a 22-point win at Kardinia Park and a 27-point win at the SCG to do the double on Sydney.
