Australian Football League Live Carlton Blues vs Melbourne Demons Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Regular Seasons Week 09 AFL Stream. Carlton Blues vs Melbourne Demons match will be kickoff at MCG stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 20 May 2018 online, 13:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
After breaking through for their first win of 2018, Carlton will be out to make it two in a row when they take on the Melbourne Demons at the MCG on Sunday May 20.
However, the Demons head in as strong favourites for the Round 9 clash, which gets underway at 1.10PM and will be broadcast live on Fox Footy.
Carlton ended their run of outs by handing Essendon a 13 point defeat in Round 7, notching up their first win for the year and just their second since the middle parts of 2017.
The Blues are 17th on the ladder, trailing the 6th placed Melbourne outfit that have won five of their eight games this season. The Demons have now won three on the trot and come off a commanding 69 point victory over the hapless Gold Coast Suns at the GABBA in Round 8.
Clayton Oliver and Nathan Jones have been in great form for the Demons and line up in the middle against Carlton’s Patrick Cripps and Ed Curnow. That quartet feature prominently in a number of statistical measures this season. Oliver and Cripps are in the top five for contested possessions.
As a whole, however, Melbourne should get on top in the middle. They rank 7th for average disposals, while Carlton are 18th. The Demons are the competition’s best at winning the contested footy, while Carlton are 14th in this measure. Melbourne are 1st in hitouts and 3rd for clearances. Carlton are 12th and 6th in these.
Another key factor should be Melbourne’s prowess up forward. Simon Goodwin’s side rank 3rd for points scored, while Carlton are 17th, averaging just 69 points per game. Jesse Hogan sits 4th on the goal kicking table with 20 goals this season, while defender turned forward, Tom McDonald booted five last weekend. Levi Casboult is the Blues leading contributor in front of goals with 11 majors after eight rounds but will be out of action.
