All AFL preliminary final, fixtures

Here’s a closer look at the AFL preliminary finals, matches:

First preliminary final game: Collingwood vs GWS Giants

The stage is set for an explosive encounter (AFL games tonight) featuring the league leaders Collingwood and GWS Giants. The Magpies have been ahead of other teams this season, securing 18 wins from a possible 23 during the regular season. However, it looks cloudy for the Magpies as they’ve lost two in their last five games. The Giants would aim at the Magpies’ shaky form in what promises to be a fierce encounter. The last encounter was one the Giants would not want to remember as it ended in a humiliating defeat—Collingwood 120 vs. Giants 55.

In the buzzing atmosphere of a packed-out MCG, both teams stand prepared for a profound journey through September, seeking glory amidst the enthusiasm of the finals.

Second preliminary final game: Brisbane Lions vs Carlton Blues

Brisbane Lions would be keen on maintaining their impressive record against the Blues. Against the Blues, they are unbeaten, hammering the blues in all five previous head-to-head games. However, the Blues would be looking forward to breaking the streak as their forward, Charlie Curnow, is in fine form. This promises to be an intense game with lots of intrigue.
