How to watch today's Collingwood vs Melbourne AFL match: Livestream, TV channel, and start time

The Collingwood Magpies (6-4-2) will face the Melbourne Demons (7-5) in AFL Round 13 action at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Monday.

The Big Freeze match at the G will have major implications for both sides, who will be looking to put their Round 12 woes behind them. The Demons were thrashed by the Fremantle Dockers, lacking any sort of inspiration across the board, and made to look like a training drill inside 50.

Meanwhile, Collingwood's injury list continues to pile up as they finally ran out of lives against the Western Bulldogs and suffered their first defeat since round two. They wouldn't be too disappointed with their last outing, having probably been the better team for three out of the four quarters.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch Collingwood vs. Melbourne in the AFL, plus plenty more.

Melbourne's young forward Jacob van Rooyen (adductor) was sore after the game against St Kilda and did not feature against Fremantle. However, the Demons hope he will be fit in time to take on Collingwood on King's Birthday.

Lachie Hunter suffered a setback and re-injured his calf against the Dockers and is set to miss 4-6 weeks. The unlucky winger picked up the same injury throughout the summer and the first few rounds of the season.

Daniel Turner (calf) and Tom Fullarton (hamstring) both recovered successfully from injury over the weekend, with the latter playing in the VFL.
