Carlton v Melbourne
Sunday 3:20pm at MCG

Carlton and Melbourne are at opposite end of the ladder but this shapes as a fascinating affair nonetheless.

Carlton are 16th on the ladder and have hardly been able to get their season going with just five wins. The have won just two of their last seven but incredibly downed Greater Western Sydney in one of those victories. They have lost their last two, respectable losses to Richmond and Adelaide. Carlton have the worst attack in the AFL but rank 10th defensively.

Melbourne are sixth on the ladder with an 8-6 record. They had won four on end before being hammered by Sydney last week. The Demons have bounced back from their last two losses with a strong win. The Demons have been held to under 100 points in eight of their last 10. Melbourne rank second in attack and ninth in defence.
