Adelaide Crows vs Melbourne Demons Preview
Melbourne has a fantastic opportunity to extend its winning streak to 10 against a Crows team that has fallen into an absolute heap recently.
After looking a sneaky finals contender earlier in the year, Adelaide has gone on to lose five straight games – the last three of which have come by double-digit margins.
The Dees, meanwhile, continue to prove they are no joke with another gutsy win over Carlton last week by 26 points.
Simon Goodwin’s side flexed its muscle with another dominant display through the midfield, while the pressure applied also forced the Blues into a number of costly mistakes down the stretch.
Adelaide has been hampered by injuries all season and this does shape as another long and difficult day.
Not only did the Crows struggle mightily for possession last week against West Coast, they were also horrible in front of goal kicking 11 goals and 10 behinds.
Similar struggles won’t go over well against a Dees side looking to maintain its form heading into a Round 11 blockbuster against the Dogs.
After winning by 49 points when they met last year, this should be another comfortable day at the office for Melbourne.
