Freo are coming off the bye and have lost only 1 match in their previous 6 outings, a solid run of form for a team that has been riddled with injuries. 

In the Dockers win against the Bulldogs earlier this season the difference was created at the stoppages and it is my expectation that Fremantle will again look to exploit this weakness in their opponent which has hampered them all season long.

  • Fremantle won the Clearances 47-30 in the matchup earlier this year
  • The Dockers allow the least amount of Centre Clearances to their opponent, averaging 8.8 per game
  • The Bulldogs allow their opponents to win Ruck Contests at the second highest rate of any team at 45.6%
  • Fremantle have allowed the fewest opposition points of any team in the AFL, averaging 67.5pts per game to their opponents


Head to Head 


This is the second meeting of these teams this season with Fremantle picking up the win back in round 7 at Optus Stadium 95-71. 

Including that game the Dogs and Dockers have met on 9 occasions since the beginning of the 2019 season with Western Bulldogs winning 5. 

The last 3 games in a row and 6 of the last 9 have gone Over the Game Total whilst each team has covered the line in their own victories.

The Winning Margin when these teams play is usually on the lower end with 7 of the last 9 games all finishing between 1-39 points.

The Bulldogs backed up their stunning 18 point win over Collingwood in round 12 with   a paltry showing at Marvel last weekend against the Lions. 

The Doggies allowed their opponents to score 114 points in the game, the highest total allowed so far this season for the team. 

They were outdone in the majority of the statistics as well with Clearances being a big factor, the Lions taking 50-32. 

Western Bulldogs Team News


Ed Richards and Cody Weightman will both test their fitness closer to game day and are expected to be in the running for selection. 

Luke Cleary and Jordan Croft both suffering from concussion have yet to be given timelines for a return. Hermes, Coffield and Naughton are at least 2-4 weeks away.

Verdict

Fremantle come into this one as underdogs despite a thumping of the Demons last game and a weeks rest in the bag. They also handled the Dogs with ease back in round 7. Western Bulldogs are struggling around the stoppages and Freo make light work of getting clearances and moving the ball into scoring zone.
