Two struggling sides go head-to-head as the Adelaide Crows host the Melbourne Demons at the Adelaide Oval. Join The Roar for live scores from 8:10pm (AEST).
Last week’s loss was a new low for the winless Crows. Coming up against a North Melbourne side coming off six straight losses and sitting in second last at the time, they were instead blown off the park in a dispiriting defeat. If they don’t get up today, it’s hard to see where Adelaide wins a game in 2020.
Melbourne also suffered a major disappointment last week. After three encouraging wins that saw them fend off the Suns, dismantle the Hawks and push the Lions all the way to the siren, they were made to look third-rate by Port Adelaide in a loss that saw them publicly criticised by their own chairman.
The Crows took the honours in a thrilling two-point over the Demons in their only meeting last year, but the Dees had won three of the previous four encounters prior to that. Home has not been a happy hunting ground for Adelaide of late; they’ve lost five straight at the Adelaide Oval seven of the last eight.
