AFL Live Sydney Swans vs Adelaide Crows Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 04 match will be kick off at SCG Stadium, Sydney, NSW, Australia, Friday 20 Apri 2018 online, 19:50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
One of the big games of AFL Round 5 will be when the Sydney Swans take on the Adelaide Crows on Friday April 20 at the SCG.
The two sides featured prominently at the business end of 2017 and it is the Swans that head in as favourites after enjoying a superior start to 2018. Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game.
Sydney have won three from four this year and stamped their class late in their Round 4 clash against the Western Bulldogs, taking out a thriller by seven points.
It has not all been smooth sailing for Adelaide, however. The Crows have battled to manage a combination of injuries and questionable form and sit with a win-loss record of 2-2. They were off their game last weekend when going down to Collingwood by 48 points and need to find a way to rebound.
Their coach, Don Pyke, will demand a lift in intensity and attack on the ball. If they fail to improve in this aspect of their game it could be a long night, as the Swans are renowned for their ability to win the contested footy, as well as the clearances.
Josh Kennedy, Luke Parker and Isaac Heeney are all in sparkling form for the Swans, as is their focal point up forward, Lance Franklin, who leads the competition for goals scored this year, with 17 majors.
At the other end of the ground the Crows will need more output from the likes of Taylor Walker and Josh Jenkins. That duo, as well as the currently injured Eddie Betts, combined for more than 150 goals last season, but have been inconsistent so far in 2018.
A lot will depend of the supply from further up the ground and with the continued absence of the Crouch brothers, the likes of Rory Sloane and Bryce Gibbs will need to produce something special against the Swans quality on-ball division.
