Brisbane Lions hosts Carlton at the Gabba in their final game of the regular season on Saturday. The Lions can still claim the minor premiership if things go their way.

Brisbane Lions Form


Brisbane won impressively against Sydney last week, looking as if they could be in some trouble during the last quarter before kicking right away in the final 10 minutes.

They love the Gabba and will be aiming for a big one to attempt to claim the minor premiership, a feat that few expected at the start of the season. Brisbane will need to belt the Blues out of the park to claim top spot on the ladder.

Brisbane Lions Team News


Expect Brandon Starcevich to return to the side, while Lincoln McCarthy looks ready after his corkie a week ago.

Carlton Form


Carlton looked a Finals hope, but have drop their level in the last four rounds, winning just the one match against Sydney. The loss to bottom side Adelaide would have hurt them last week.

Carlton are looking to find their best form to end the season on a high, and get their main man Patrick Cripps back into his prime.

The Blues have a good recent record against the Lions, but both sides seem to be in a different vein of form.

If Patrick Cripps can return to his absolute best form, he can tear this game apart and bring the Blues right into the match, as he did last season.

Brisbane are the heavy 1.18 favourites while Carlton are 5.00 outsiders. The line has been set for Brisbane at -26.5.

Brisbane Lions vs Carlton Match Up

The key match up in this match looks between Jacob Weitering and Eric Hipwood.

Hipwood has put together two strong games in a row and showing the talent that he has always promised, while Weitering looks a lock as an All Australian defender.

If Hipwood is kept quiet, that takes away a tall target for Brisbane. But if he can impact the game, Brisbane's winning margin will blow wide open.
