Collingwood Magpies vs Brisbane Lions
Date: Saturday, September 30, 2023
Time: 2:30 pm
The day of reckoning is finally upon us! The 2023 AFL Grand Final between the Collingwood Magpies and Brisbane Lions at the iconic MCG in front of what is guaranteed to be a packed stadium.
The history between these two leading into this game is pretty intense; the last time these two teams faced off in a Grand Final together was way back in 2003, with the Lions outplaying the Magpies while beating them once again the year before.
(That’s a big chunk of voodoo on Collingwood’s shoulders. However, that was two decades ago with a wealth of fresh talent and an eye on the prize).
More recently, Brisbane has maintained an upper hand, securing six consecutive victories against Collingwood. Players like Charlie Cameron, with his impressive 10-goal tally, and Lachie Neale, averaging 26.5 disposals, have been instrumental in these wins.
However, the MCG has been a challenging venue for the Lions, with a concerning 1-14 record from their last 15 matches. In contrast, the Magpies boast a strong 23-4 record from their last 27 games at home. This home advantage could be the game-changer for Collingwood that helps tip this game in the favourite’s favour.
Brisbane’s recent form against Collingwood though is hard to ignore; they’ve consistently outperformed the Magpies, even when tagged as the underdog. Notably, in their last six matches as underdogs, they’ve won five times by a margin of 1-39 points. This wasn’t up against Collingwood, but it definitely goes to show that they love being the underdog and have the tenacity to rise to the occasion.
