Carlton will head into the clash at Etihad Stadium full of confidence after demolishing Gold Coast last week and in the knowledge they pushed Geelong right until the very end of the match when they met earlier in the year.
The Cats will be without Stevie Johnson who has pulled out of the clash due to foot soreness, and the Blues have a genuine chance at causing an upset here.
Mick Malthouse said on Thursday that Visy Park was a ‘buoyant’ place to be around at the moment and they’ll be liking their chances at knocking off the Cats.
There’s no way the Blues will have it all their own way however, as the Cats currently sit on equal points with pace setters Hawthorn and Sydney and will be desperate for a win to further enhance their chances of a home final.
Make sure you tune into this one, it’ll be a cracker.
