How to watch Carlton Blues vs Port Adelaide AFL live and match preview

Posted: 17 April 2021 2:49 pm

Can the Power follow up their epic win over Richmond and dispose of the Blues on Saturday night?

SUMMARY: Blues vs Power is on Channel 7 in South Australia. If you're anywhere else in the country you need access to Fox Footy. Your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Blues vs Power is a match-up the South Australian side has dominated. The Power have won four straight contests between the two. The Blues last beat Port back in round 8, 2016 in a 2-point thriller.

Yet the Blues (2-2 record) may fancy their chances here given the Power had a bruising, hard-fought victory over premiers Richmond last weekend. That followed Port's lacklustre loss to West Coast in Perth. The Blues will go into battle without forward Jack Silvagni, who injured his shoulder in Carlton's win over the Suns.

When is Carlton vs Port?

The Blues take on the Power from 7:25pm AEST on Saturday 17 April at the MCG.

Carlton Blues vs Port Adelaide Power match preview

Carlton vs Port Adelaide - Last 5 meetings

The Power have some injury troubles. They will be missing young gun Zak Butters, who needed ankle surgery after the clash with Richmond. Fellow 2018 draftee Xavier Duursma sustained a knee injury in the same game and will be sidelined for 8–10 weeks.

On top of that, Connor Rozee and Tom Clurey sustained corked legs against the Tigers, Orazio Fantasia hurt his ankle and Todd Marshall (ankle) was a late withdrawal.

With Power's long list of casualties and coming off an energy-sapping triumph over the Tigers, we're tipping Carlton to cause an upset here. Blues by 10 points.
