The Brisbane Lions can still steal the minor premiership if they knock off the Carlton Blues at The Gabba and hope for an upset elsewhere. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:40pm (AEST).
Brisbane made it six straight wins last week after seeing off a dogged challenge from the Swans to prevail by 32 points – a margin even the most one-eyed Lions fan would admit flattered them. They haven’t been playing perfectly, despite their lengthy winning streak, and will want to put a good win on the board ahead of finals.
Despite some good performances, Carlton haven’t really had the season they wanted in 2020, with last week’s loss to Adelaide particularly disappointing. Asking them to finish off with a win here is a very tall order, but they’d want to put in a consistent and competitive performance at the very least.
The last time these sides met was David Teague’s first game in charge of the Blues, a match they won by 15 points. The Lions had won six of the previous seven meetings, however, and haven’t lost to Carlton at home since 2013.
