Australian Football League Live Western Bulldogs vs Carlton Blues Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Seasons Week 06 AFL Stream. Western Bulldogs vs Carlton Blues match will be kickoff at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Friday 27 April 2018 online, 19:45 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Round 6 of the AFL home and away season gets underway when the Western Bulldogs take on Carlton at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.
The April 27 encounter gets underway at 7.50PM and it is the Dogs that head in as favourites against the Blues, who are yet to win a game this year. Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game.
The two sides have combined for just the one win in 2018. That went the way of the Western Bulldogs, who defeated Essendon in Round 3. Since then the 2016 premiers have gone down to Sydney by seven points and Fremantle by 54.
Carlton battled through their first four games before putting on an improved showing by just falling short behind one of the ladder leaders in West Coast last weekend. They went down to the Eagles by 10 points at the MCG.
An interesting feature of this game is that both sides have struggled to impact the scoreboard in 2018. Carlton average just 67 points, while the Dogs have fared slightly better with 72 points per game. Both sides are conceding a tick over 100 points.
It may be a case of the side that stands up the most in the middle of the ground. Patrick Cripps has been in great form for Carlton and is one of the reasons why the Blues rank higher than the Dogs for winning contested possessions and clearances. Other key players for Brendan Bolton’s side are their defenders, Sam Rowe and Liam Jones, as well as the ever reliable, Kade Simpson and Ed Curnow.
At the Bulldogs, their coach Luke Beveridge will need to find a way for his side to avoid the lapses that have plagued them this year. They were flat on the road last weekend but were good the two weeks prior to that.
Marcus Bontempelli and Jackson Macrae have been in good touch for the Bulldogs but it is their second tier players that will need to lift if they are going to get their running game going.
