Head to Head

Melbourne Demons have won the last two clashes including an 81-77 win to land the minor premiership in Round 23.

After a big final term in their last clash, Melbourne came straight past Geelong to win by four points.

Melbourne Demons Form

The Dees have turned themselves around this season and become the team to beat and deserved premiership favourites.

They toyed with the Brisbane Lions in the qualifying finals two weeks in a 93-60 win, and if they show up with that type of form once again it could be lights out for the rest of the competition.

It is now five wins in a row for Simon Goodwin's side after finishing the season in fine form.

Melbourne Demons Team News

Joel Smith has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, so Michael Hibberd comes in as the only change for the Dees.
