Essendon Bombers vs Melbourne Demons Preview
The Bombers are hot!
Well, two wins by a goal over Sydney and Freo with an 80+ day break between matches-hot but alas, they have started season 2020 two-zip and in this reduced, crazy season we’re in it’s as good as it gets right now.
As for Melbourne, being ahead by seven goals and end up beating Carlton by one-point leaves a lot to be questioned.
This match is hard to get a feel for.
The Dees have only one game by more than 15 points since the start of last season and if they are to replicate the form that saw them reach the preliminary final back in 2018, they’ll need to start scoring, not to mention the stress long-suffering Melbourne fans are suffering.
I expect that under 15 points trend to continue, I just don’t know which team it will be in favour of in this game.
