GWS Giants need to win against Melbourne Demons on Saturday this to keep their Finals hopes on track after a dismal loss to Adelaide last week.

Melbourne have lost two in a row but can remain in the Finals picture themselves with a win in what is a do or die match for both sides.

Given the inconsistency of GWS, we can expect a better performance off a hard loss last week.

GWS Form & Team News

GWS lost hard to Adelaide Crows last week in what was one of the most disappointing performances we have seen from the club over their lifetime.

Big news coming from the Giants is that skipper Stephen Coniglio has been dropped from the side after not playing up to his hefty standards that we know he is capable of.

Josh Kelly will come back into the Giants line-up and be the perfect replacement for the skipper.

Melbourne Form & Team News

Melbourne need another win or their Finals hopes for 2020 are all but over.

They needed to beat Fremantle last week which they could not do, and a loss the previous week to Sydney will have sapped confidence in the Dees camp.

They are a side that can bounce back unexpectedly, and against another inconsistent side like the Giants, they are right in the match.

GWS vs Melbourne Match Up

The key match up in this game will be between Josh Kelly and Christian Petracca.

Both players are fierce in a contested scenario and can both hit the scoreboard, taking them to the elite status. They are also two of the most watchable players in the competition, so fluent with ball movement and decision making during clutch moments.

It is expected that both players will find a lot of ball, but whoever can impact the scoreboard and score involvements could lead their team to victory.
