THE PREDICTION

Essendon and Carlton both come into this with a 2-4 record after disappointing starts to the season but the pair will both believe that they can prevail here. Essendon will be the more confident of the two having defeated Collingwood last week while Carlton lost out to Brisbane Lions which was their second loss in succession. The Bombers will be desperate to build on that and they tend to be strong on home soil against the Blues so they hosts should prevail here.
