Essendon vs Adelaide Preview

This is a huge game with plenty at stake for both sides. Adelaide sit in 7th position on the ladder, while Essendon are 8th. The winner could climb as high as 5th at the end of the round, while the loser are likely to end up in 9th, with Geelong strongly favoured to account for North Melbourne later in the day.

Essendon come off a heart-breaking four-point loss against Port Adelaide, courtesy of an after-the-siren goal from the Power’s Dan Houston. Kyle Langford booted three goals, while Darcy Parish and Zach Merrett combined for 60 disposals in the loss.

On the same weekend, the Adelaide Crows accounted for North Melbourne by 66 points. Izak Rankine and Darcy Fogarty combined for nine goals, while Jordan Dawson, Ben Keays and Rory Sloane were among the major disposal getters.

The question over the Crows is whether or not they can do it on the road. In 2023, Adelaide have won just once in six games outside of South Australia with that a three-point escape against Hawthorn back in Round 6.

However, they did push Collingwood in their most recent trip to Melbourne, going down to the ladder leaders by just two points in Round 15 at the MCG. The Crows are yet to travel to Marvel Stadium this season and lost all three of their games at the venue in 2022, including one to Essendon.
