Carlton vs Fremantle Tips


Carlton and Fremantle will go head to head on Easter Sunday with the Blues well favoured to be claiming their first win of the 2021 season at Marvel Stadium.

They have been competitive with both Richmond and Collingwood in their opening two rounds, not falling too far short of the prize either time. They now face Fremantle who they have beaten in the last two meetings.

  • Carlton have beaten Fremantle in their last two clashes.
  • Fremantle captain Nat Fyfe will miss due to last week's concussion.
  • Carlton play their first game at Marvel Stadium this season

Head to Head


Fremantle hold a recent record of 6-4 from the last 10 meetings, but Carlton have won the last two clashes.

Both were by four points and both times at Optus Stadium.

Carlton Form


Having played the reignnig premiers and a top eight side in the competition in their first two weeks of footy, the Blues stood tall and can be proud of the way they played.

Their 25-point loss to premiers Richmond Tigers was an honourable Round 1 effort.

The Round 2 game against Collingwood was within their grasp, but some key opportunities were missed throughout the match as they went down by 21 points last week.

Carlton Team News


Two big losses for the Blues this week were Zac Fisher and Jack Martin, with both expected to miss up to six or seven weeks.

Jack Silvagni will undergo a test this week and hopefully can make his way back into the Carlton side.

Fremantle Dockers Form


The opening quarter against the Demons in round one cost the Dockers that match, with Melbourne going four goals in front by the end of the first quarter. That was pretty much what the margin was at full-time as the Dees won 80-58.

Fremantle need to start of their games quicker and get on the front foot, which is exactly what they did last week against the GWS Giants at Optus Stadium last week.

They held a 19-point lead into quarter time and extended that by half-time. It was a comfortable 87-56 victory in the end.

They can play some very exciting footy when they're alive in the hunt for a win, so against a hostile Blues crowd, they need to get on the board early to silence supporters.

Fremantle Dockers Team News


Nat Fyfe is the big loss for the Dockers as concussion rules him out

But Michael Walters will hopefully return to the side this week, giving them something for the loss of the captain. 

Liam Henry should be passed fit to play while Rory Lobb may make an earlier than expected return over the next month of footy.

The Fremantle team list is yet to be announced.
