Where and when: MCG, Saturday 26th June at 7:25pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 18, 2020: Melbourne 10.8 (68) def Essendon 7.7 (49) at Metricon Stadium
Last five H2H: Melbourne 3 – Essendon 2
Match Preview: This match should be a cracker with two teams trying to nail down a position in the top 8, albeit at opposite ends. The Bombers are playing exciting footy and remain in contention for the top 8, especially if the Package keeps playing for a large contract boost. The Dees still head the ladder and will continue to do so if they can stop dropping games to teams outside the top 8.
If Melbourne wants to remain the team to beat, they will win this match comfortably, but this is Melbourne we are talking about.
They know how to disappoint their fans like few other clubs, but I am keeping the faith!
Merrett, Ridley and Parish. Hopefully not Stringer.
