How to watch Port Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs AFL live and free
The strangest AFL season on record continues with Port against the Bulldogs in a Monday night opening to round 10. This is how you can watch.
As the AFL does its best to cram the 2020 season into a limited time frame due to the pandemic, round 10 will be held from Monday to Friday this week. That's right, zero weekend games for the round and four teams are having a bye, partly due to quarantine requirements.
It opens with ladder leaders Port Adelaide hosting the eighth-placed Western Bulldogs. Port bounced back from an upset loss to St Kilda with a strong win over Melbourne last time out. The Dogs need to recover from their heavy defeat to Richmond as their finals hopes flicker.
When is Port Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs?
Adelaide Oval is the scene for this clash, with the opening bounce set for 7:10pm AEST on Monday 3 August.

Who will win Port Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs?
Port's six-goal defeat to the Saints a fortnight ago had many questioning their position atop the AFL ladder. The Power responded well against a poor Demons side, but still have some doubters about their true premiership credentials. The Bulldogs have been an even tougher side to read in 2020. Able to beat anyone when at their best, they are also capable of worrying lapses which is why their play-off position is extremely vulnerable. We're leaning towards a narrow Port win here.
