Western Bulldogs vs Carlton Tips

Western Bulldogs and Carlton clash on Sunday where the former comes in after suffering their first loss of the season last week at the hands of Richmond Tigers.

Carlton were able to hold off Essendon in what was a very high scoring game, now coming into this match with some winning form. But they are no match for the Dogs, who will have the bit between their teeth.

  • Western Bulldogs have won 6 of their 7 matches this season.
  • Western Bulldogs have won their last 5 matches at Marvel Stadium.
  • Western Bulldogs have won 5 of their last 6 matches at Marvel Stadium by 1-39 points
  • Carlton have lost 6 of their last 8 matches against Western Bulldogs.

Head to Head

This is an interesting recent head to head read with Carlton have won two of the last three. But the Bulldogs have emerged victorious in six of the last eight.

Their last clash was won heavily in favour of the Blues as they came away 52-point winners last year.

Western Bulldogs Form

The Dogs kicked off the season well, going unbeaten in their first six matches before suffering a first loss last week to Richmond Tigers.

The majority of teams that they have played during the season have been better quality teams than Carlton and they should bounce back.

Back to Marvel Stadium, this is where they have played their best footy. Expect a reaction to last week's loss.

Western Bulldogs Team News

Western Bulldogs have opted against rushing ruckman Tim English and speedy goal sneak Laitham Vandermeer back this week.

They make two changes with Jordon Sweet coming in for injured ruck Stefan Martin and defender Buku Khamis handed an AFL debut.

Carlton Form

They have not played a really poor match all season which means they are definitely a side improving, a positive sign for them over the next two to three years.

They lost honourably to Port Adelaide and Brisbane in round five and six, while they beat Essendon last week in what was the highest scoring match of the year, both sides eclipsing the 100 point mark.

They come into the game with a truck load of confidence, but this will be one of their tougher games for the season against a hungry Bulldogs side.

Carlton Team News

Calrton lose Mitch McGovern to injury and have left out Paddy Dow and Sam Petrevski-Seton.

Zac Williams and Jack Silvagni are recalled.

Marc Murphy remains among the injury absentees for the Blues.
