  • Port Adelaide have won 5 of their last 7 matches against the Western Bulldogs
  • Western Bulldogs have lost 3 of their last 5 matches

Head to Head


Port Adelaide have won five of their last seven clashes with the Bulldogs, the latest coming in the last round of the home and away season

Power reeled in a Bulldogs lead to beat them in the final minutes of the game.

Port Adelaide Form


Port Adelaide have won their last seven matches and have looked near unbeatable when playing at home all season long.

So, playing a home preliminary final is a huge advantage, especially having had the week off since defeating Geelong Cats 86-43 in the Qualifying Final.

The Dogs, on the other hand, have gone the Tasmania>Brisbane>Perth route before arriving in Adelaide and are coming off a taxing Semi-Final. Power can really take advantage of having the last week off.

Port Adelaide Team News


Port Adelaide have one of the slimmest injury lists in the competition with just three players on the sidelines - and none of those are guaranteed starters.

As a result, the Power go in unchanged from the Qualifying Final.

Western Bulldogs Form


The Bulldogs prevailed by one point in their Semi-Final against Brisbane Lions last weekend at the Gabba.

In what will go down as one of the greatest finals matches of all time, it was a game that neither side deserved to lose with the Bulldogs winning 79-78.

The Dogs ended the home and away season with three losses before being Essendon Bombers 85-36 in the Elimination Final.

We know their best is as good as any team still in contention, but how much petrol is still in the tank this Saturday?
