Collingwood v EssendonThe traditional ANZAC day match between two of the great old clubs who both haven’t been so great the last few years but should relish being on the big stage against each other again.
The Bombers started the year in a blaze of glory but have stumbled the last two weeks, while the Pies have have showed plenty of promise without the results.
Never take anything for granted in these matches form doesn’t count for much both sides pretty even statistically with a slight edge to the Magpies in defence but the Bombers have the edge up forward the mid field battle will be where it’s won and it’s very hard to split the two.
Collingwood will take the edge in the middle and if their forward line can produce they will win the game, expect it to be tight early but the Magpies to pull away late.
