Top Dogs have score to settle with Demons
It’s the top-two showdown worthy of 90,000 fans, but the Demons and Bulldogs will duke it out at an empty MCG, with the winner to go top of the table. Melbourne’s recent form has been concerning, and it has only managed two wins from its past five, after slipping up against teams well below it, including a draw with the Hawks last week. But the Demons tend to lift against the heavyweights and already have bragging rights after they beat the Bulldogs by 28 points in May. Marcus Bontempelli is the key if the Dogs want to pull off an upset.
