Where and when: Docklands, 7:50pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R13 2020: WBD 12.8 (80) DEF Melbourne 7.10 (52) at Metricon.
Six unanswered goals from the Dogs turned a seven-point Demons half-time lead into an unassailable 27-point buffer at the final break. Half-backs Hayden Crozier, Bailey Williams, Jason Johannisen and Caleb Daniel set up the turnaround, while Marcus Bontempelli and Tom Liberatore were brilliant around the stoppages throughout. With Josh Bruce taking the ruck duties from Tim English and Josh Dunkley, the Dogs relied on attacks from defence with six of their first 10 goals generated from their back half.
Match Preview: A wheel fell off the Dee Train with their loss to lowly Adelaide last weekend. Whether it was a freak occurrence or a sign of more sinister things will be proven out tonight when they take on the new ladder leader.
