Show Preview

Two old rivals go head-to-head in unusual circumstances as the Essendon Bombers write another chapter with the Carlton Blues at the MCG. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:40pm (AEST).

It’s been a curious start to 2020 for Essendon so far, with two one-goal wins over predicted bottom sides before last week’s clash against Melbourne was postponed following a COVID-19 scare. Despite the 2-0 start, the Bombers are still a difficult team to get a read on and a comfortable win here would send a message.

Meanwhile, the Blues enjoyed a stirring upset win last week, dominating Geelong for three quarters before holding on grimly in the last quarter to prevail by two points. Carlton had enjoyed strong second halves in both losses before and, if they can consistently start on time, could be a tough team to play.

The Bombers and Blues have alternated wins over the last six meetings, dating back to 2015. Essendon won last year’s clash by 41 points – the final match of Brendon Bolton’s coaching tenure.
