Week two 2019 AFL Finals fixture revealed


//

With week one of the AFL finals series in the book, the match-ups are locked in for the second week.

Collingwood and Richmond will have the day off after winning their respective qualifying finals, meaning that both preliminary finals will be played at the MCG for the fist time since 2011.

Here are the fixtures for week two and three of the AFL finals series:

1st semi-final: Geelong v West Coast Eagles, MCG, Friday, September 13, 7.50pm AEST

Last clash: Round 6, 2019 - Cats 15.14 (104) def. Eagles 7.4 (46) at GMHBA Stadium

Last final: Preliminary-final, 2011 - Cats 17.15 (117) def. Eagles 10.9 (69) at MCG

The West Coast Eagles were impressive in their dismantling of Essendon on Thursday night, but will now face Geelong at the MCG in the first of what will be three consecutive trips to the home of football of they are to defend last year's premiership.

What a test this is for Geelong. A loss here will make them the first minor premiers to be knocked out in straight sets since the top eight was introduced in 1994.

The Cats are the nominal hosts but premiers West Coast have the momentum and will be licking their lips at the prospect of playing at the 'G, where they have won five of their last six games.

2nd semi-final: Brisbane Lions v GWS Giants, Gabba, Saturday, September 14, 7.25pm AEST

Last clash: Round 16, 2019 - Lions 14.10 (94) def. Giants 11.8 (74) at Giants Stadium

First finals clash between the two teams.

Overawed and overpowered by Richmond in a heavy qualifying-final defeat, Chris Fagan's Lions cubs must reset and regain their mojo.

The Lions should take heart from their strong start and the fact they were cruelled by inaccuracy in front of goal. But after battering the Western Bulldogs in an upset week-one victory, GWS will be looking to bring that same ferocity to the Gabba.

Matt de Boer's shutdown role on Marcus Bontempelli was particularly crucial and either Lachie Neale or Dayne Zorko can expect the same treatment. Brisbane will be without Mitch Robinson (hamstring), while GWS veteran Brett Deledio (calf) has almost certainly played his last game.
