Essendon vs Western Bulldogs

Two sides that need points in their respective top 8 chases face off, as Essendon host the Western Bulldogs. Things have taken a turn at Essendon, with the side having won just one of their last four outings and slipping to 8th in the table as a result.

The Western Bulldogs meanwhile have endured some similar results but against much tougher opposition, a fact that should give them increased confidence here.

This will be a tight one, but the Western Bulldogs look due a win and it could well come here.

Richmond vs Hawthorn

A resurgent Richmond will be looking to continue their push for a top 8 finish, as they take on lowly Hawthorn. Having won 5 of their last 6 matches, Richmond look to have a fresh look about them and they certainly have the momentum – with the end of the season on the horizon.

Hawthorn meanwhile look to have lost their winning touch, having lost their last 4 matches and a top 8 finish certainly looks to be beyond them now.

This will be a closer game than the odds at face value suggest but Richmond should get the job done here.

Carlton vs West Coast

Having put an end to Port Adelaide’s stunning winning run in emphatic style last time out, Carlton look set to back it up against West Coast.

The points have flowed for Carlton in recent weeks, picking up 4 consecutive wins to climb the table and they look to be finding form at the right time.

However, the landscape for West Coast looks more bleak than ever – with just one win from 18 games played and they look to be waiting for the campaign to end.
This should be one-way traffic, with Carlton sure to get over the line.

Brisbane vs Geelong

Two sides chasing a top 4 place do battle at the Gabba as Brisbane host Geelong.

Having suffered a painstaking 1-point loss to Melbourne last time out, Brisbane will be eager to appease that here and to keep their expectant home fans.

Geelong meanwhile have snuck under the radar in recent times, winning their last 4 matches and they now find themselves 5th in the table – on the coat tails of opponents Brisbane.

This should be one of the best games of the weekend and Brisbane will fancy their chances at home.

Fremantle vs Sydney

Two sides with work to do if they are to fight their way into the top 8 face off, as Fremantle host Sydney.

Things have taken a turn for the worst for Fremantle in recent times, with their barren run seeing them skip to 15th place in the table, with just a handful of matches to play.

Sydney meanwhile are enduring similar struggles, sat in 14th place but their win over the Western Bulldogs last time out should give them a boost of sorts.

This is a tough one to call but perhaps Fremantle could pick up a valuable win here.

Port Adelaide vs Collingwood

The hotly anticipated battle between the top two sides in the AFL table is upon us, as Port Adelaide host Collingwood.

Prior to game week 18, Port Adelaide had gone toe-to-toe with Collingwood but their defeat to Carlton last time out could clip their wings a little.

Collingwood meanwhile have been imperious this term, losing just two matches and they have looked impenetrable in recent weeks.

This should be an absolute classic but Collingwood should manage to get over the line when it matters.

Greater Western Sydney vs Gold Coast

The in-form side in the AFL table Greater Western Sydney take on a new look Gold Coast side, in what should be an excellent fixture.

Five consecutive wins has pushed the GWS Giants bang into top 8 contention and writing them off looks dangerous currently.

Gold Coast meanwhile find themselves under new management and a change at the top got them a useful win over St Kilda last time out – something they will be eager to build upon.

Momentum is with GWS though and they should prevail at home here.

Melbourne vs Adelaide

Melbourne will be looking to kick on following their big win over Brisbane last time out, as they take on a faltering Adelaide team.

4th place in the table is representative of the strong season Melbourne have had this term and they will want to keep picking up results with the end of the season looming.

Adelaide meanwhile have won just one of their last 4 matches and they need to pick up points if they are to have any chance of a top 8 finish.

This should be a cracking game, with Melbourne most likely to come out on top at home.

St Kilda vs North Melbourne

A good old Victoria derby is on the horizon as St Kilda take on North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium.

Results of late have been a little underwhelming for St Kilda, who have won just one of their last 5 matches but still find themselves very much in the top 6 and in the mix for playoff action.

North Melbourne meanwhile have endured a rough season, with problems on and off the pitch and they will not be relishing this challenge.

This looks to be the perfect game for St Kilda, who should win comfortably here.
