The Dees didn’t know how to win last week when going down the Bombers whilst the Lions acquitted themselves well with a loss to Sydney.
The Dees are unchanged from their loss to Essendon. They are without four of their best 22 (Frost, Kent, Petracca and Salem). The Lions have added Stefan Martin, Ryan Harwood and Mitch Robinson at the expense of Rohan Bewick (omit), Jordan Bourke (omit) and Darcy Gardiner (shoulder). They are also without at least four of their best team.
The Dees are 15th on the ladder with four wins from 14 games having lost five of their past six games. They rank 15th for points scored and 14th for most points conceded this season. They are 3-4 (2-5 against the line) vs bottom ten teams in 2015. The Lions are last on the ladder with just two wins. They rank last for points scored and points conceded this season. They are 0-6 (4-2 against the line) vs top eight teams this season.
Melbourne has played Brisbane 24 times since the merger with the Lions leading 15-9; having won the last five straight between the two sides. Since 2010, Brisbane is 5-3 both head-to-head and against the line vs Melbourne. Brisbane is 8-20 (12-16 against the line) away from Queensland since the start of 2013. The Lions are 1-8 (5-4 against the line) at the MCG since 2010. The Demons are 6-14 (8-12 against the line) at the MCG under Paul Roos. The Dees are 5-3 vs the Brisbane Lions at the MCG. Melbourne is 4-6 (3-7 against the line) in games that they have started as favourite since the start of 2012 – 0-4 both head to head and ATL under Paul Roos. Six of the last nine games between the two sides have totalled under 169.5 points. Bernie Vince is averaging over 34 disposals in his last five games.
The Lions are building towards a win with three decent efforts, albeit losses, over the last three weeks against Adelaide, Fremantle and Sydney. They have their A-Grade midfield playing (Beams, Rockliff, Hanley, Zorko, Christensen, Redden, Leuenberger, Martin) whilst Merrett and Clarke give them stability down back. The Wolf was burnt by Melbourne as favourites last week and will not make that same mistake again.
