Australian Football League Brisbane Lions vs Adelaide Crows Live Stream Free, AFL 2019 Round 09 Live Stream. Brisbane Lions vs Adelaide Crows match will be kickoff at Gabba Stadium, Woolloongabba, Australia, Saturday 18 May 2019 online,Time:02:10pm AEST and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Brisbane have been the improvers in season 2019, winning five of their eight games, matching their total haul of just five wins from 2018.
The Lions come off a 16 point loss to the Western Bulldogs in Round 8 but should appreciate a return to their home ground of the GABBA.
After a slow start, Adelaide have recovered and have won their past four. Last week, they were too good for their injury riddled local rivals, Port Adelaide, defeating the Power by 20 points at the Adelaide Oval.
Both sides have won five games with the 3rd placed Crows just edging the Lions, who are 5th on the ladder.
Little separates the two sides in more ways than one but Adelaide might have the defensive game to stifle the Lions. Daniel Talia, Alex Keath and Rory Laird have all been in fine form down back and in the past five weeks the Crows have conceded an average of just 57 points per game.
Brisbane will need big games from their forwards, while in the middle of the ground, Lachie Neale, Mitch Robinson and Dayne Zorko will provide plenty of supply. But the Crows might just have too much depth around he ground and can head in with confidence after their past month of footy.
Brisbane have very few injuries at the moment and have a healthy list to choose from. Zac Bailey may miss with a hamstring injury, while Rhys Mathieson is a likely inclusion.
Adelaide’s Matt Crouch is in doubt with a hip injury sustained in the win over Port Adelaide. Bryce Gibbs and Josh Jenkins will be considered for selection.
Adelaide have won their past six games against Brisbane with those wins coming at an average margin of a whopping 62 points. Five of those games have been held at the GABBA, including the last clash between the two sides, which was a rare close one with the Crows prevailing by five.
Brisbane have won three of four at the GABBA this season and Adelaide have won five from 12 games outside of Adelaide since the start of 2018.
