Carlton vs Brisbane Lions Preview


The Friday night clash sees Brisbane play host to Carlton at the GABBA in what is a rematch of the 2023 Preliminary Final. After a slow start, the Lions claimed victory in that match by 16 points before going down in the decider to Collingwood by four.

Brisbane come into this as solid favourites and have not lost to Carlton in their past eight appearances at the GABBA. Chris Fagan’s side looked sharp in their recent hitout against Sydney, holding the Swans to just eight goals in their 25 point win.

Carlton’s midfield are missing Sam Walsh and will need to find a way to penetrate the Lions backline in order to provide enough opportunities to their forward duo of Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay. Those two combined for six goals but it wasn’t enough in the Blues 38-point loss in their practice match against Melbourne.

The Lions were undefeated in 13 matches at the GABBA in 2023. With slightly more depth around the ground, as well as the home crowd behind them, we can expect Brisbane to be tough to beat in this encounter and open their account up with a win.
