Melbourne Demons vs Richmond Tigers Preview

There is certainly no shortage of storylines heading into Saturday’s epic Anzac Eve clash at the ‘G.

Melbourne will take to the field 5-0 for the first time since 1994, while on a more individual level, both clubs will also celebrate Nathan Jones’ 300th and Dustin Martin’s 250th game milestones.

The Dees had their work cut out last week for three quarters against the Hawks before putting their foot down in the final term to win quite comfortably.

Richmond, on the other hand, shifted from neutral back into fifth gear against the Saints to snap their two-game skid with an impressive 86-point win.

Not surprisingly, the Tigers have dominated this fixture in recent years winning five straight over the Demons dating back to 2016, and it is no real surprise to find the bookies siding with them in the market.

While the Demons have been impressive to start the season, it’s hard to ignore the fact Hawthorn made life very difficult for their forward line last week for the better part of three quarters.

The Hawks also highlighted (in all the wrong ways) that Max Gawn is the key to Melbourne’s chances.

If the Tigers can limit Gawn’s involvement and also play the well-disciplined brand of football that was on full show last week against the Saints, Richmond should prove too strong.
