Brisbane vs Adelaide Preview and Prediction

Brisbane comes up against Adelaide on Sunday afternoon after their convincing win against West Coast last week, whilst Adelaide searches for their first win in a troubled season.

Brisbane dominated all areas of the game kicking eight goals in the second half.

Lachie Neale was the star for the Lions finishing the match with 32 disposals, seven tackles and two goals.

Meanwhile, Adelaide was controlled by a team you’d expect them to beat. The Crows were thoroughly disappointing kicking only 10 points in the first three-quarters of the game.

Adelaide was dominated in the midfield having 13 fewer clearances and 28 less inside 50’s against the Suns. Without the influence of Matt Crouch in the midfield, the Crows will need to rely on Rory Sloane and Brad Crouch to lead the line.

Tom Doedee impressed for the Crows last week with 20 disposals and 10 interceptions.

Brisbane has had two victories since the restart of the 2020 season and I believe Brisbane will comfortably get over the line against the Crows convincingly.

Brisbane vs Adelaide Team News

Brisbane name one change to the side the defeated West Coast with Dayne Zorko coming in for the omitted Thomas Berry. Cam Rayner will play his 50th game on the weekend. 

The Crows make three changes with Billy Frampton, Myles Poholke and Shane McAdam who comes in for his debut. Paul Seedsman, Rory Atkins and Matt Crouch are out of the side, with Crouch being a shock omission.

These sides last met in Round 9 last season which saw Brisbane just get over the line by 1 point.
