Watch Free AFL Fremantle Dockers vs Adelaide Crows Live Streaming Online AFL 2016 Seasons Week 21 match will be kickoff at Patersons Stadium, Perth, Australia, Sunday 14 August 2016 online, 16.40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Crows have never won two games in Perth in the same season but they have a wonderful opportunity this week after beating the Eagles back in round 12 at Domain Stadium. The Dockers have lost their last six and have only won three games for the season. The Dockers’ scoring is a major concern. They have failed to kick 10 goals in five of their last six and only managed eight goals against the Crows earlier this season. The Crows feasted on the Lions last week. They are the highest scoring team in the competition and have kicked 100 points or more in 14 games. The Dockers’ midfielders must win the supply battle if they are to have any chance against the Crows.
Fremantle have now lost six in a row, with no real hint that a win is just around the corner. Last weeks western derby against the Eagles was a fairly lifeless affair, and the Dockers are looking to the off-season.
Adelaide have won 10 of their last 11 matches, and have been in awesome form over the last fortnight against the bottom two sides, beating Brisbane by 138 points and Essendon by 82.
The two teams are split 5-5 over their last ten clashes. Fremantle are 2-1 at Domain Stadium in that time. Neither side has topped 100 in their last six matches.
Fremantle have failed to cover in their last three matches, and five of their last six. They are -71% POT this season, ranked #18 in the league. They have won two of their last 11 matches at Domain.
Adelaide have not lost a game to team that was outside the eight since Round 5, 2015. In their last six matches at Domain, they are +7% POT and 67% ATS. They have covered the line in six of their nine interstate matches this season.
Fremantle are on a downer now, with one eye on the end of the season, which can’t arrive quick enough. They can give appropriate effort for a quarter or a half, but aren’t toughing out four quarters.
Adelaide will be moving the ball quickly at all costs, knowing the Dockers can’t match them for skill or speed, and will be looking to give their high scoring forward line every chance. If they can keep the momentum going from the previous two weeks, and they should with a top two spot up for grabs, then the line here doesn’t look high enough.
