Preview

We look to be set for another Friday night blockbuster, with two in-form teams going head-to-head. Both Melbourne and Sydney are coming off thrilling wins in round 13, and will now be fighting it out for an incredibly important four points.

Sydney’s record against Melbourne is impressive over recent time. From their past 12 games against the Demons, the Swans have won 10, and drawn one. This is a great opportunity for Melbourne to get one back, especially considering it’s at the MCG.

This is a tough game to split, the Demons are still missing some big names, while the Swans don’t have an amazing record at the G’. You have to feel like Sydney are due to drop a game, and Melbourne seem to be the side to beat at the moment.
