The first game today is between Geelong Cats and Adelaide Crows which shapes up to be one of the matches of Round 18. The opening bounce is set to commence at 1:45pm local time with the game being played at Simonds Stadium. View our live scores, results and dream team points.
The last time these two teams met was in Round 7 this year in which Adelaide won by fifty points at AAMI Stadium.
Geelong’s team will be boosted with the inclusion of Jimmy Bartel and Allen Christensen who will replace Matthew Scarlett and Jordan Murdoch.
Adelaide will make the same amount of changes with leading goal scorer Taylor Walker and Luke Thompson coming back into the team for Kurt Tippett and Andy Otten.
Geelong go into the match as favourites due to the home ground advantage but Adelaide have been arguably one of the best teams in the competition this year and should make it a very tough test.
