How to watch Melbourne Demons vs Gold Coast Suns AFL live and free
Gold Coast can give their unlikely AFL finals hopes a big boost if they overcome under-fire Melbourne in Sydney. This is how to watch.
Gold Coast vs Melbourne features AFL teams going in very different directions. The Suns have impressed all with their competitive start to 2020. With one of their best young players now sidelined with injury, number one draft pick Matt Rowell, expectations will be lower and wins from here may be viewed as a bonus.
The situation is a polar opposite for the Demons. Having reached a preliminary final in 2018 amid enormous optimism, Melbourne have crashed back to earth in the time since. Fans are losing faith once more with the club's board and direction. If coach Simon Goodwin can't find a way past the depleted Suns, that intense glare will only intensify.
When is Melbourne Demons vs Gold Coast Suns?
This match gets underway at 6:05pm AEST on Saturday 11 July at Giants Stadium in Sydney.

Who will win Melbourne vs Gold Coast?
For a match involving the sixth-placed Gold Coast and a Demons side sitting second last, there will be plenty of interest in the outcome. The Suns were the AFL's darlings since the competition restart until number one draft pick Matt Rowell suffered a likely season-ending shoulder injury in last week's loss to Geelong. Can they stay on track or will they fall away?
Melbourne are under the microscope after a poor effort against Richmond left them 17th with a 1-3 record. Coach Simon Goodwin is facing major questions despite having two years left on his contract. A loss here will have all associated with the Demons under immense pressure. We'll give them a chance and opt for a narrow Melbourne victory in Sydney.
