AFL Live St Kilda Saints vs Western Bulldogs Live Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 20 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, Saturday 04 August 2018 online, 19:25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
This match has no impact on the top-eight, with St Kilda (15th) taking on the Western Bulldogs (14th). The Dogs sit one position higher on the ladder but you wouldn’t know it. The Dogs have lost nine of their last ten matches and have dished up some of the worst footy of the year in the last month.
The Western Bulldogs have kicked over 100 points only once since their Round 8 clash against the Brisbane Lions. The Dogs have failed to kick 60 points in six of their last ten matches and have failed to kick 50 points in their last two matches.
St Kilda won only one match in the first 12 rounds but bounced back with three wins from their next four matches. Over the last fortnight, however, the Saints have fallen off again, with a 54-point loss to Richmond and a 25-point loss to the GWS Giants. Losing to the Tigers and Giants is not the issue, however, there a lack of effort and overall skill that I’m sure is concerning to Saints fans.
The Saints kicking has undoubtedly made scorelines worse for themselves this season. The Saints have kicked 180.209 in 2018, compared to their opponents 248.215.
The Bulldogs have won three of their last five matches against the Saints. The average total match score for these five games was 140.6 points. I’d be surprised if we don’t see another low-scoring match on Saturday night.
Western Bulldogs rookies Kieren Collins (Whiplash, chest, abdominal) and Roarke Smith (Concussion) will both be forced to pass fitness tests for the injuries they sustained in their car accident last week. Matt Suckling (Achilles) and Jack Redpath (Knee) have both had their seasons cut short due to injury, adding to the Dogs wretched run with injury.
With both teams struggling to score in recent times, a low-scoring scrap is predicted.
