How to watch Collingwood Magpies vs Port Adelaide Power AFL live and match preview
Collingwood's remarkable run of close games continued with the most thrilling victory of them all coming against Essendon last week. The after-the-siren triumph made it 9 wins in a row, including the last 5 all by single figures with an average winning margin of 6.4 points. One imagines Collingwood will increase this margin against Port Adelaide.
Port Adelaide have fought bravely in the last fortnight but losses to Melbourne and Geelong have likely ended their finals push for 2022.

All of it has led to them sitting in the top 4 under first year coach Craig McRae and he'll be hoping they can keep riding the wave.
Port Adelaide have been much better since the opening of the season, but the key will be how much fight they have left. With back to back defeats all but ending their finals chances, can they rally again to bring down the Magpies?
