Where and when: Marvel Stadium, Saturday, June 15, 7.25pm AEST

Melbourne Forecast

Partly cloudy. Slight (20%) chance of a shower. Light winds.

What it means for Carlton: After a morale-boosting victory last week, the Blues will be hoping to show it was no flash in the pan. Another win here could be massive for caretaker David Teague's hopes of keeping the job full-time.

What it means for Western Bulldogs: The bye came at the perfect time for the Bulldogs, who had lost three straight games going into it. Refreshed and reenergised, they simply have to snap that streak against the Blues.

The stat: Due to a quirk in the fixture, this will be the third time the Western Bulldogs have met Carlton in its last 14 games.

The match-up: Patrick Cripps v Marcus Bontempelli
Two of the best young midfielders in the competition, this pair loves playing against each other and are frequently matched at stoppages. Cripps got the better of the dual in round five, winning 37 disposals and 11 clearances.

Who will come out on top in this huge match-up? Picture: AFL Photos


It's a big week for: Harry McKay
The imposing Carlton forward was best on ground when these two sides last met. Simply unstoppable in the air, he finished with four goals, 20 disposals, 11 marks and five contested marks. Another performance like that could lift the Blues to victory.

Big call: Bont to get the better of Cripps

Prediction: Western Bulldogs by 11 points

Good thing this was on the same time as a World Cup match, becaue this looks a total bludger.

Could probably be a 150+ point win that.
As bad as Carlton have been since 07 we actually have never really got hold of them to that extent. We'd have beaten most teams in the AFL by over 80 points in that period I reckon but Carlton aren't one of them.

Carlton match up really well against the Bulldogs with their tall forward line against a backline filled with half back flankers, and Beveridge refuses to tag so expect Cripps to crack 50 possies. Dogs will struggle to score as their plan A is to bomb it long - Casboult and Weitering will have a field day.

Prediction: Carlton 19.5.119 Bulldogs 8.17.65

This is the kind of match up that can be really good to watch (both teams sensing a chance to win, get to watch some young stars and future stars, some exciting brand of footy, close game with some scoring) or it can be absolutely ****house with 2 teams spudding it up all night long in a **** show. Hopefully this is the former and not the latter.
