WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Sunday June 24, 3.20pm
This clash between old enemies should result in a percentage-boosting victory to finals aspirant Collingwood, given both the Magpies’ hot form and Carlton’s deepening woes. The improving Pies have won eight of their past 10 games and should win five in a row for the first time in six years against a Blues side that has won just one game. The ruck duel between Pies star Brodie Grundy and Matthew Kreuzer will be one to watch given both are exceptional at ground level, but the Magpies should have a decided advantage with their star-studded, deep midfield. When they met in round three, Pies captain Scott Pendlebury nullified Blues gun Patrick Cripps around the stoppages, so it will be interesting to see what the Pies have planned this time. The Blues will also have their hands full with Collingwood’s bevy of speedy, medium-sized goalkickers.
