Brisbane vs Gold Coast Preview and Prediction

The Lions came away with a victory against the Magpies despite their poor second half. Whilst, Gold Coast will be optimistic with their extended break after demolishing the Kangaroos at Metricon Stadium.

Despite the Lions strong first half performance, they only managed to kick one goal for the rest of the match and come away with eight-point triumph against the pestering Magpies.

Brisbane’s impeccable home record this season will hold them in good stead for finals football, after the announcement of the 2020 AFL Grand Final being hosted at the Gabba.

However, a key out for the Lions is Harris Andrews, who will most likely miss the rest of the home and away season.

Jarryd Lyons was influential for the Lions, finishing the match with 27 disposals, eight intercepts, seven clearances and a goal.

Meanwhile, the Suns enjoy a well-earned rest after hammering the woeful Kangaroos last time out.

The Suns obliterated North Melbourne in chances created, finishing the game with 31 scorings shots to North Melbourne’s eight.

A particular highlight for Gold Coast is their excellent balance of youth and experience in the squad, you can expect the Suns to be challenging for finals footy in the next couple seasons.

Brisbane have had a terrific season this season, and I believe they’ll win this one comfortably.

Brisbane vs Gold Coast Team News

The Lions could see the return of Archie Smith to replace Tom Fullarton, Jack Payne and/or Alex Witherden will return to the side due to Harris Andrews’ injury.

The injury news to come out of the Suns camp is that Josh Schoenfield has recovered from his injury but will feature in a scratch match this week.

The two sides last met last season which saw Brisbane demolish Gold Coast by 91 points.
