Posted: 23 August 2020 9:33 am

Two teams gearing up for a tilt at this year's AFL premiership meet when Brisbane host St Kilda in round 13. This is how you can watch.

With the AFL finals fast approaching, this is a clash of two teams with their eyes firmly set on the ultimate prize in 2020. Just 12 months after the Lions finished second on the ladder before dropping 2 straight finals games, they appear well placed for a much deeper play-off run.

They take on a St Kilda side that may just be asking why can't they prove the Cinderella story of this most unusual of AFL seasons? With coronavirus wreaking havoc throughout the year, the Saints are just outside the top four on percentage and brimming with new-found confidence.

When is Brisbane vs St Kilda?

The opening bounce of this round 13 match-up is at 3:35pm AEST at the Gabba in Brisbane on Sunday 23 August. You can see the complete 2020 AFL draw here.

Who will win Lions vs Saints?

It is remarkable how far the Saints have come under Brett Ratten. A team that hasn't played finals football since way back in 2011 has an 8-4 win-loss record this season and suddenly finds itself in premiership conversations.

But the Lions are a little bit further advanced in their development than St Kilda, coming off a drought-breaking finals campaign of their own in 2019. That was their first in a decade and we think the Lions should take the points in a quality match at the Gabba.
