Essendon Bombers v Fremantle Dockers Tips, Predictions and Match Preview - which side will end losing streak?

Trent Orwin 15 May 2019
  • Essendon host Fremantle in Round 9 at Marvel Stadium
  • Losing streaks: Essendon 3, Fremantle 2

Essendon host Fremantle in Round 9 action at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night.

Fox Sports 3 will broadcast the match that is scheduled to start at 7:25pm AEST.

Match Preview


Essendon have lost their last three matches and have a record of three wins and five losses which leaves them 13th on the ladder. Fremantle sit in 8th position with four wins and four losses. They have lost their past two matches. 

The Bombers will be disappointed after losing a narrow one in Sydney against the Swans. Goal post-climbing Dane Rampe was lucky not to have given away a free kick with David Myers kicking from outside 50 after the siren.

Fremantle couldn’t match Richmond at home and will be looking to find some form. 

Essendon may have three-straight losses but they almost toppled Collingwood on Anzac Day. Close losses show they have been right in the game and they should be able to out-do Fremantle as the match wears on. 

The Bombers need more out of Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti. When the Dons won three-in-a-row, he kicked four, seven and two. He has been goalless in every losing match this year. His inconsistency has been a concern and he will be eager to boot a few majors. 

Team News


Essendon’s Orazio Fantasia will miss around a month of action with a quad injury. Joe Daniher is available for selection. 

No injury updates for Fremantle who could tweak the side based on player form. 

Match Odds


Essendon $1.41
Fremantle $2.95
