Port Adelaide Power vs Brisbane Lions: AFL Round 15, 2024 Preview, Prediction, Team News, and More

Port Adelaide Power and Brisbane Lions are set to kick off Saturday’s AFL Round 15 clash at Adelaide Oval, marking a pivotal moment for both teams in their quest for a spot in the qualifying finals.

Port Adelaide slipped to seventh place in the standings after recent losses to GWS Giants and Carlton Blues. A win against Brisbane is crucial to secure their position in the top eight, especially with midfielder Zak Butters’ return from suspension bolstering their lineup. Butters has been pivotal against the Lions, tallying 27 disposals in their recent encounters.

Meanwhile, Brisbane, with only one loss in their last six matches, enters as strong favorites. They defeated St Kilda and Western Bulldogs in their recent outings, showcasing their form and potential to climb into the top eight. Their forward line remains a formidable asset, poised to challenge Port Adelaide’s defense.

Despite historically struggling at Adelaide Oval, Brisbane has won four of their last five meetings against Port Adelaide. With their recent form and momentum, Brisbane is predicted to extend their winning streak to three matches, making them favorites to triumph convincingly.
