Brisbane Lions hosts Carlton at the Gabba in their final game of the regular season on Saturday. The Lions can still claim the minor premiership if things go their way.

Brisbane are looking to belt the Blues out of the park to claim top spot on the ladder, whereas Carlton are just looking to find their best form and get their main man, Patrick Cripps, back into his prime form.

Brisbane Form & Team News

Brisbane won impressively against Sydney last week, looking as if they could be in some trouble during the last quarter before kicking right away in the final 10 minutes.

They love the Gabba and will be aiming for a big one to attempt to claim the minor premiership, a feat that few expected at the start of the season.

Expect Brandon Starcevich to return to the side, while Lincoln McCarthy looks ready after his corkie a week ago.

Carlton Form & Team News

Carlton looked a Finals hope, but have drop their level in the last four rounds, winning just the one match against Sydney, while a loss to bottom side Adelaide would have hurt them last week.

The Blues have a good recent record against the Lions, but both sides seem to be in a different vein of form.

If Patrick Cripps can return to his absolute best form, he can tear this game apart and bring the Blues right into the match, as he did last season.

Brisbane vs Carlton Head To Head

Brisbane are in the better form and are expected to win, but this may not be all one-sided.

The line has been set for Brisbane at -26.5.

Brisbane vs Carlton Match Up

The key match up in this match looks between Jacob Weitering and Eric Hipwood.

Hipwood has put together two strong games in a row and showing the talent that he has always promised, while Weitering looks a lock as an All Australian defender.

If Hipwood is kept quiet, that takes away a tall target for Brisbane. But if he can impact the game, Brisbane's winning margin will blow wide open.
