Collingwood vs Geelong 2021 match preview
We're sad to report the MCG will be closed to fans once more as Melbourne's AFL teams go back into lockdown due to the latest outbreak. The Pies already had enough dramas of their own to deal with, led by ongoing talk of a board coup.
Former Channel 9 executive Jeff Browne is reportedly ready to launch his challenge against Collingwood president Mark Korda. On top of this, star midfielder Taylor Adams made the startling admission to media earlier this week he shouldn't be playing right now due to a troublesome knee injury.
The Cats will be missing wingman Mitch Duncan following his well-publicised concussion in the 34-point win over the Suns last weekend. It's a big blow considering Duncan had racked up 2 goals and 15 disposals in a sizzling first half before being hurt in a Nick Holman tackle.
Another key midfielder, Cam Guthrie, is in doubt with a shoulder injury suffered against the Suns but is expected to play.
Despite these setbacks, we're still predicting a Cats victory. Skipper Joel Selwood has been in vintage form, destroying Gold Coast last week. They will also be eager to collect another important win before their round 12 bye. The Cats have also won 9 of their past 10 matches in Victoria. It all spells trouble for Collingwood.
