Richmond Tigers vs Essendon Bombers match will be kickoff at MCH Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 27 May 2017 online, 19:25 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Richmond Tigers take on the Essendon Bombers in the annual ‘Dreamtime at the G’ clash on Saturday night, May 27 and the Round 10 encounter pits the 7th placed Tigers up against the Bombers, who sit in 10th spot on the ladder.
The 7.25PM clash shapes as a pivotal one for both sides, who are looking to stay in touch with the top eight as we head to the mid season bye.
Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game, while AFL Live Vision is also available to ALL CrownBet members. Every Match, wherever you are.
Little separates the two sides this season as both have won five of their nine games with Richmond the higher of the two due to their superior percentage.
The Tigers head in as slight favourites in the head to head betting with CrownBet but will be out to snap a four game losing streak that has included three that have been decided by under a kick.
Last week’s effort was arguably the hardest to swallow of the lot. After leading GWS for the entire game, the Tigers conceeded a goal to Jeremy Cameron at the death, going down by three points.
On the same weekend, Essendon continued their impressive recent run by accounting for the West Coast Eagles by 61 points at Etihad Stadium. The Dons have won two in a row and standout players have included Joe Daniher, David Zaharakis and Jackson Merrett.
Daniher will have his work cut out in his attempts to repeat his antics over the past few weeks. He will most likely line up on the competition’s best defender, Alex Rance, while Merrett and Zaharakis will go head to head with the likes of Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin.
The two sides play contrasting brands of football. The Bombers have found more of the ball this year and play an uncontested brand of with quick movement through the corridor, while Richmond are the better contested side and should also have a slight edge in the clearances.
The contest should be a belter and looms as a tough one to pick. Richmond may just have the upper hand but who would want to back them, particularly if they are a few goals up and heading into another frantic final quarter. If Damien Hardwick’ side can hold their nerve, they can rejoin the winners list but the deflating losses may have just taken the sting out of them.
