Collingwood v Port Adelaide - Marvel Stadium - 7:50pm

Locked on four wins apiece from the opening six rounds, Collingwood and Port Adelaide will face a testing encounter when they meet at Marvel Stadium on Friday night. Although it rarely serves as a home, this venue has been kind to Collingwood across recent seasons, with the club winning each of its last five matches at Docklands by an average margin of 31.2 points.

For Port Adelaide, Marvel Stadium is also a ground less travelled, with only five contests there since the start of 2016. Led by former skipper Travis Boak who continued his brilliant start to the season and will celebrate game 250 against the Pies, the Power defeated the Roos by 16-points last Friday night, however, it came at a cost with Robbie Gray ruled out for a month due to a broken hand. Comparatively, Collingwood came out of its thrilling four-point ANZAC Day victory over Essendon unscathed and is expected to welcome back Jamie Elliott from injury to aid its quest for a fourth consecutive victory.

Key Stat: The favourite has won each of Collingwood's last 10 night matches at Marvel Stadium

Tip: Collingwood

Best bet: Collingwood 1-39
