The Dogs have won their last two matches and boast an incredible record against Richmond of late, making them tremendous value as the outsiders in this match.

Richmond battled bravely against the GWS Giants last week but ultimately fell short with such an undermanned line up.

Western Bulldogs Form & Team News

Going for three wins on the trot and holding a 5-1 record against Richmond from their last six clashes, the Dogs deserve to be the match favourites.

Richmond Tigers Form & Team News

Richmond seem to have lost a lot of their zest with some big outs in the side including Trent Cotchin, Dion Prestia, Shane Edwards and Bachar Houli.

Cotchin is expected to make his return to the side to face the Dogs, as is solid defender David Astbury.

These two ins give Richmond a bit of core strength and, of course, leadership throughout the midfield which they have been missing.

Western Bulldogs vs Richmond Tigers Match Up

The key match up for this match looks between Marcus Bontempelli and Shai Bolton.

Bontempelli has averaged 27 disposals, six clearances and a goal against the Tigers, so he clearly loves that match up.

Bolton has really sprung up this year as a strong player for Richmond and is now playing a full-time midfield role in the abcense of Dion Prestia.

If Bolton plays a shut down role on Bontempelli, Richmond are playing negatively. If they take the brave approach and let Bolton play his game, he has the class to dominate the game.
