How to watch Melbourne Demons vs Fremantle Dockers AFL live and match preview
Reigning premiers Melbourne take on another top 4 challenger this week. Fremantle is coming to town for their first MCG appearance this year.
Looking for 18 wins in a row vs Fremantle, Melbourne continue to take all before them after another 47-point win last week as they improve to 10-0 in the season. The reigning premiers are seeing off every challenge and look very much the team to beat once again.
The Fremantle Dockers were flying a fortnight ago, but a rough couple of weeks may have shaken the confidence a little. Losses to the Gold Coast and Collingwood leave them needing a victory to maintain their path.
When is Melbourne vs Fremantle?
This match is a twilight fixture on Saturday 28 May at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), beginning at 4:35pm AEST.

Melbourne vs Fremantle match preview
Fremantle are moving closer to a return of Nat Fyfe but for the most part, they've covered him beautifully this year. The last 2 weeks have been frustrating, but not without some small positives along the way.
Unfortunately, if you need a win to recapture your form, Melbourne at the MCG isn't the first place you'd choose to seek it. The Demons have been comprehensive in their dominance this year and no matter the challenge, they seem to find the answers. We expect they'll be challenged again here, but will once again respond to record a victory.
Head here for a breakdown of the full AFL season draw.
