Australian Football League Western Bulldogs vs Brisbane Lions Live Stream Free, AFL 2019 Round 08 Live Stream. Western Bulldogs vs Brisbane Lions match will be kickoff at Mars Stadium, Wendouree, Australia, Saturday 11 May 2019 online,Time: 1:45pm AEST and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The two sides were among the big winners last weekend. An Aaron Naughton-inspired Western Bulldogs pulled off an upset 47 point win over Richmond, while the Brisbane Lions accounted for the Sydney Swans by 22 points at the GABBA.
The win for the Bulldogs snapped a four game losing streak and they now have a win-loss record of 3-4, while they sit in 12th position on the ladder. Brisbane are in fourth spot with five wins. That matches their total haul of five wins from 2018.
Despite their respective standings, the Dogs head in as favourites for the game but will need to continue on from where they left off last weekend. Naughton hauled in 14 marks and booted five goals, while Marcus Bontempelli booted three. Jack Macrae, Caleb Daniel and Josh Dunkley combined for 107 disposals.
The Bulldogs rank 4th in the competition for total disposals, while Brisbane are 11th. But the Lions are the better clearance side and Lachie Neale, Dayne Zorko and Stefan Martin are among their key players in the middle.
If Chris Fagan’s side can get on top in this area and convert up forward an upset is on the cards. Dan McStay, Charlie Cameron and Eric Hipwood will be the focal points.
The Western Bulldogs are unlikely to make too many changes to their side following their win over Richmond. Tom Boyd and Bailey Williams are among those with some good form in the VFL.
Brisbane have very few players on the sidelines at the moment. Harris Andrews is a chance to return from a hamstring injury.
The Western Bulldogs have won the past four games between the two sides including the round eight 2018 Marvel Stadium encounter by 14 points. Jack Macrae racked up 47 possessions in that game, while Marcus Bontempelli booted four goals. Dayne Zorko kicked four for the Lions.
