Few would have predicted that the Sydney Swans would be playing Carlton in the second week of the 2013 AFL finals, yet here they are in what shapes as a thrilling finals encounter that could fall either way. Join us for live scores and commentary from 7.45pm AEST.

Carlton only came into the finals this year courtesy of sanctions imposed against Essendon, but quickly proved their legitimacy with a 20-point win over Richmond at the MCG.

The Blues came from a long way behind in the second half to close out with a victory, and will no doubt have gained plenty of confidence from that result that they’ll take with them in their trip up to Sydney.

The Swans were comprehensively beaten by Hawthorn in their final, but showed some promising signs throughout the first half.

John Longmire will be looking to see a similar start from his side here, but will know that the Swans can ill-afford to struggle out of half-time like they did last week — especially not against a Carlton side oozing with confidence and ready to snaffle up any chance that may arise.

The potential inclusion of inspirational leader Adam Goodes has the potential to be a huge boost for the home team, though they still bring a long injury list into the match.

The likes of Jarryd McVeigh and Lewis Roberts-Thompson are expected to undergo late fitness tests for their potential inclusion into the squad.

Playing away from the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney won’t be as comfortable playing at ANZ (losing both home games there this season) but they’ll certainly be more at home than the Blues.

Carlton have won just once in their last 12 trips to Sydney against the Swans, which also included a finals fixture at ANZ in 2010 —which the Swans won by five points in a thriller.

This one stands as being another close-fought affair, with the Swans desperate to prove their legitimacy as a finals contender.

Only one team in the past decade has made it into the semifinals after starting in the bottom half of the eight—a fact that doesn’t appear to give Carlton that much hope heading into this one.

But, as they say, statistics are made to broken and this could be further proof of that.

Either way, it stands as being another memorable finals fixture filled with can’t-miss footy. Make sure you join us live from 7.45pm AEST for full coverage and analysis.
