Melbourne Demons vs Western Bulldogs Preview

With history set to be made, the 2021 Grand Final will be contested by Melbourne and the Western Bulldogs at Perth’s Optus Stadium on Saturday evening.

Although the Bulldogs finished the home and away season fifth, it’s hard to argue that these aren’t the strongest sides of 2021.

Both clubs flexed their muscles in the preliminary finals.

Melbourne obliterated Geelong 125-42, led by a performance for the ages from Max Gawn (five goals).

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs claimed a scintillating 116-45 victory against Port Adelaide in South Australia behind another pair of incredible displays from Bailey Smith (23 disposals, four goals) and Jack Macrae (36 disposals).

Fittingly, these clubs split their two matchups this season.

The first meeting saw Melbourne win 87-59, led by outstanding displays from Gawn (21 disposals, one goal) and Clayton Oliver (33 disposals), while the Dogs won the second 85-65 thanks to the midfield dominance of Macrae (38 disposals) and Marcus Bontempelli (31 disposals, two goals).
