Carlton vs Port Adelaide Match Up

Carlton are still somewhat of a hard team to get a good gauge on with last weeks thrashing of the Western Bulldogs being clearly their highlight of this season so far.

There was a strong attacking mindset from the Blues last round in that victory where along with winning the contested ball when it mattered, were also able to create plenty space for their forwards in Harry McKay, Mitch McGovern, Eddie Betts and Jack Martin to work in which resulted in a big score for the Blues.

That same plan will be their best chance to roll the Power who have conceded the least amount of points in the league but have also got that good balance between defence and attack where they will likely be the highest scoring side after Round Seven providing they don't put in a shocker on Sunday.
