It's an exciting Lions and Cats match lots of punters are waiting for this Saturday, 17th August 2019, at the GABBA. The Brisbane Lions have been showing their competitive edge for the most part of the season, managing to kick one of the highest scores last week. Geelong has serious reasons for concern if the Lions keep their flow and repeat the impressive score. The Brisbane Lions could potentially finish as high as first on the ladder. They could also end up 6th at the end of the season. on the other hand, The Cats lost away to Fremantle at their last encounter. They could go on a losing streak when playing away with Brisbane.
Geelong was formed in 1859 and it is the second oldest club in the AFL, as well as one of the oldest and most experienced football clubs on the planet. Needless to say, they have lots of fans who will be rooting for them. They won seven premierships which turned them into one the most successful VFA clubs, along with other six premierships by 1963. It took them another 44 years to win their next premiership with an all-time AFL record of 119 points in 2007. Ever since they have won two more premierships in 2009 and 2011 and they may be aiming for a new one, so not all is lost.
The Brisbane Lions were formed in 1996 as a result of a merger between the Brisbane Bears and the Fitzroy Lions. They are one of the most popular AFL clubs of the century. They have made an appearance in four consecutive AFL Grand Finals and won three premierships.
