Carlton vs Port Adelaide Preview


This shapes as an interesting encounter and Carlton will be out to keep their finals hopes alive with an upset win over the 2nd placed Port Adelaide. The Blues have bounced back big time in recent weeks, winning their past three games by an average margin of just over 57 points.

Those wins followed a six-game losing streak and a series of underwhelming displays that saw them kick fewer than 60 points in the last five of those losses. But the switch has been flicked in recent weeks, averaging 110 points per game.

In Round 17, Charlie Cameron and Harry McKay combined for six goals, while Sam Walsh, Patrick Cripps, Sam Docherty and Adam Cerra all had 27 or more disposals. The latter quartet can push a Port Adelaide midfield that are regarded as one of the best in the competition.

The Power found themselves behind at halftime of their Round 17 clash against the Gold Coast Suns before turning it on in the third quarter by kicking nine goals. Their brilliance was on full display and it was Connor Rozee that is likely to pick up the three votes for his 28 disposal and two-goal game.

Allir Allir was unstoppable down back and will get the job on either Curnow or McKay. The Power will have to do it without fellow key defender, Trent McKenzie, who went down with injury in the win.

Carlton are right in this contest on the back of their recent wins but it is hard to tip against the Power, who have now won 13 in a row. They have been able to do it at home and on the road and have won both of their games at Marvel Stadium this season with those coming against top eight sides in St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs, taking their streak at the venue to nine, a sequence that stretches back to the beginning of 2021.
