Essendon vs West Coast Preview

Essendon enjoy a golden opportunity to pick up a crucial win in AFL Round 21 when they take on the bottom-placed West Coast Eagles on Saturday at Marvel Stadium.

The Bombers lost their Round 20 encounter to the Sydney Swans, their third loss in succession. They have now slipped to 13th spot on the ladder, one game and percentage behind 8th placed Richmond.

West Coast fans had reason to celebrate last weekend with their side finally ending their losing streak, which stood at 16. The Eagles held off North Melbourne by five points, registering their second win of the season.

Despite losing last weekend, the Bombers come in full of momentum and overcame a 37-point deficit before time essentially beat them in the end as they were full of running Kyle Langford and Peter Wright will be key targets and we can expect the home side to lead the clearance and contested possession counts with Zach Merrett, Jye Caldwell and Darcy Parish all in good form.

West Coast can be competitive with Tim Kelly, Andrew Gaff, Shannon Hurn and the 2018 Grand Final hero, Dom Sheed, all in good form. But it is a stretch to say that they can register two wins in a row and I expect Essendon to bounce back big time here.

Eagles vs Bombers Stats

  • West Coast won just their second game of the season last weekend, ending a 16 game losing streak.
  • Essendon are on a three-game losing streak.
  • The Bombers rank 5th for total disposals this season, West Coast are 15th.
  • Essendon have won two of the past three between the two sides.
  • The two sides have not met at Marvel Stadium since 2017, that game went the way of the Bombers.
