Where and when: Kardinia Park at 7:50pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Round 16, 2020: Geelong 17.6 (108) DEF Essendon 5.12 (42) at The Gabba.
Last five: Geelong 4-1, Essendon 3-2
Match Preview: As tired as Geelong looked last week against The Lions, we can forgive them one off week. They’ll be happy to be getting back to the familiar confines of Kardinia Park and the massive number of free kicks they’ll receive from opposing defenders spraying the ball out on the full due to the narrowness of the ground. Essendon are looking like a real 11th place team right now. They knock off the teams they should (North, West Coast, Hawthorn) but fail when they find themselves up against quality outfits (Melbourne, Richmond). Geelong at home is one such quality outfit.
