  • Carlton have covered the line in their last 5 matches following a loss.

Head to Head

Brisbane has a strong recent head to head record over Carlton, winning five of their last six matches.

In April of last year, Brisbane came away 18-point winners at Marvel Stadium.

Brisbane Lions Form

At half-time last week against Richmond, the Lions looked to have broken the MCG hoodoo before somewhat of an implosion in a 104-97.

That will be a huge dent in their confidence, coming after successive wins over GWS Giants and Gold Coast Suns.

The Lions dropped out of the top four following the loss to the Tigers.

Brisbane Lions Team News

Zac Bailey and Jarrod Berry both were injured in last week's match, but have been passed fit.

Daniel Rich and Brandon Starcevich both come back in after missing last week.

Carlton Form

It looked impossible six weeks ago, but Carlton are a chance of bombing out of the eight after an inconsistent run.

The Blues are currently on a win/loss pattern, with the latest defeat coming last week in disappointing fashion at the Adelaide Crows 84-55.

Carlton Team News

The Blues injury list is not improving by any means, with Matthew Kennedy and Nic Newman joining it.

Caleb Marchbank, Jack Martin, Lachie Fogarty, Paddy Dow, Brodie Kemp and Jack Newnes come in.
