Australian Football League Live GWS Giants vs Melbourne Demons Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 20 Stream. GWS Giants vs Melbourne Demons match will be kickoff at UNSW Canberra Oval, Canberra, ACT, Australia, Saturday 05 August 2017 online, 13:45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The two sides head into this clash under plenty of pressure. GWS notched up an overdue win last weekend, their first since Round 14, bit were unconvincing in the 12-point triumph over lowly Fremantle.
The Giants will also have to do it without a stack of their injured players, including Jeremy Cameron, who will miss 2-3 weeks with a hamstring injury.
Melbourne dropped their Round 19 clash to North Melbourne by four points and are among the bottleneck of sides that are trying to sneak into the top eight. A loss will likely see them out of the eight at the end of the weekend.
The Saturday contest pits two of the competition’s best midfield brigades up against one another and the battle here will be pivotal to the result. Melbourne rank in the top three of the competition for disposals, contested possessions and clearances, while the Giants are first for clearances and second for efficiency.
Josh Kelly, Lachie Whitfield, Dylan Shiel and Stephen Coniglio take on the likes of Clayton Oliver, Jack Viney and the former Giants, Dom Tyson, while another intriguing battle will be in the ruck, where Max Gawn goes head to head with Shane Mumford, provided the big ‘Mummy’ overcomes a recent injury.
Brett Deledio is a chance of coming in for his first game of the year for GWS after returning from an ongoing calf injury in the NEAFL last weekend. Jeremy Cameron will miss for the Giants with a hamstring injury.
Melbourne lose Jesse Hogan to a broken collarbone and may look to recall Sam Weideman after the youngster booted three goals in the VFL last weekend. Nathan Jones faces a fitness test.
Melbourne have won five of the nine matches between the two sides. The last encounter was way back in Round 1 last season and on that occasion it was a two point win for the Demons at the MCG.
