AFL Live Western Bulldogs vs Brisbane Lions Stream AFL 2017 Seasons Round 05 match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 22 April 2017 online, 13:45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Western Bulldogs and the Brisbane Lions feature in one of four games on AFL Saturday and the Round 5 encounter gets underway at 1.45PM at Etihad Stadium.
The 6th placed Bulldogs head in as heavy favourite’s but won’t be taking it lightly against the Lions, who registered a win against the premiers at the venue in the recent JLT Community Series.
Fox Footy will broadcast the game, while AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
The Western Bulldogs have been posted as $1.10 favourites in the head to head betting with CrownBet and will be hard to beat.
Luke Beveridge’s side will be looking to register their fourth win of the season from five appearances and take on a Brisbane outfit that sit with a win-loss record of 1-3.
The Lions were disappointing against Richmond last weekend, going down at the GABBA by 52 points. It is hard to make a case for the Queensland side. While they look to have improved the defensive aspect of their game this year, they continue to battle up forward, where a lack of experience has counted against them.
On a bright note for Chris Fagan’s side, his midfielders have been able to find plenty of the football early on in season 2017. Dayne Zorko, Dayne Beams and Mitch Robinson have shown plenty of consistency, while Tom Rockliff comes off an outstanding game.
Across the ground, however, they will be tested by a Bulldogs outfit that showed a stack of resilience in their nail-biting win over North Melbourne on Good Friday.
Marcus Bontempelli, Luke Dahlhaus and Jack Macrae continue to find plenty of the footy and unlike the Lions, the Doggies have a host of options up forward.
