How to watch Geelong Cats vs Collingwood Magpies AFL finals live and free in Australia

Posted: 10 October 2020 11:28 am

The quest for another flag ends for one of Collingwood or Geelong this weekend. Who'll win and take on the Lions?

SUMMARY: Cats vs Pies will be live on Channel 7 and Fox Footy. So if you have access to Channel 7 or 7mate you can watch the game for free. If not your best option is to stream the match on Kayo Sports. You can watch via Kayo for no cost using this 14-day free trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Collingwood only just managed to punch their ticket to the semi-finals, after they beat West Coast by a single point. They'll now need to put the emotion of last week's victory behind them as they take on Geelong.

Both clubs will likely be relishing the opportunity of playing at a neutral venue this week. The two sides so far have had to play in front of West Coast and Port Adelaide who were buoyed by home crowds. It'll be interesting to see if that plays a part.

When is Geelong vs Collingwood?

The opening bounce of Geelong vs Collingwood will be from The Gabba at 7:40pm AEDT on Saturday 10 October 2020.

How to watch Geelong vs Collingwood

Channel 7 and Fox Sports both have the broadcast rights to Cats vs Pies. Depending on the state you live in, Geelong vs Collingwood may be on 7mate instead of Channel 7. So if you've got access to the Seven Network you can easily watch for free. However, it will not be available via 7plus, so if you need to stream the match you'll need a subscription service.

Your streaming options to watch are via Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now or Kayo Sports. If you're looking to watch from outside Australia you'll need Watch AFL. We have a full breakdown of AFL broadcasters here.

Who will win Magpies vs Cats?

Geelong are considered slight favourites heading into the game. They also come in fresh from a week off after winning in the opening round of the finals. Given what Collingwood went through last week and travelling from Perth to Brisbane for this match, Geelong definitely have an edge. For that reason we'll opt for Geelong by one or two goals.
