Essendon vs Fremantle Preview


Essendon secured the first victory of their campaign in one of the games of the season against Adelaide. The high-scoring affair saw both teams trade blows before Blake Caracella’s outfit came out on top by four points.

The Bombers will be full of confidence that they can get their second win of the season against the in-form Dockers, having won the previous five meetings, including four at Marvel Stadium.

Meanwhile, Fremantle made it back-to-back triumphs with wins against the Eagles (55 points) and most recently, the Giants by 34 points at Optus Stadium after booting the last six goals of the match.

If the Dockers are to prevail on Sunday evening, they will need to break the trend of the home side winning this match-up. On 10 of the previous 11 occasions, the home side has claimed the four points.

Both sides are very similar in terms of quality on the ground, with key forwards Peter Wright and Matt Taberner both proving their threats this season. However, it’s the midfield battle without Zach Merrett and Nat Fyfe, which will be most entertaining and could be pivotal in the outcome of the match.

It is typically a close game when these two sides butt heads, with three of the previous four meetings being decided by under 10 points. So, you can expect another close match that the Bombers could come out on top.
