Adelaide Crows vs West Coast Eagles Prediction, Preview, Team News and More: AFL Round 11, 2024

The Adelaide Crows face the West Coast Eagles on Sunday at the Adelaide Oval in Round 11 of the AFL.

The Crows have a lot to worry about entering this match. They lost their last game against the Collingwood Magpies by two points. They will look to redeem their loss when they face West Coast.

However, they’ve lost two key players, Izak Rankine and Elliot Himmelberg, due to injuries. Not to mention that they haven't capitalised on their home advantage, losing seven of 19 games since 2023.

The Eagles, meanwhile, have fared worse away from home, having won just two away games since 2022. They’re clearly a better home side than away, considering their average losing margin in their five away losses this season being 51 points.

Facing Kurwana at home could be a nightmare matchup for the Eagles, especially because the Crows will be out to redeem themselves after a razor-thin loss to the Magpies in the previous round.

Nevertheless, they will have the confidence from winning their last game against the Melbourne Demons despite being the underdogs. Moreover, the Crows have their fair share of injuries in key places, which West Coast could exploit. Not to mention that they won’t have their best weapon, Izak Rankine, who is one of the most lethal forwards in the league, for this game.

This is a tough call to make, but expect West Coast to win narrowly.
