How to watch Western Bulldogs vs Fremantle Dockers AFL live and match preview
Everything goes on the line this week as the Bulldogs and Dockers face off in a massive late-season clash to shape the run home.
Crunch time is upon us with Western Bulldogs vs Fremantle albeit for different reasons for both of these teams. The Western Bulldogs played well for large periods of their match with Geelong last week but got blown out in a messy third quarter.
The Dockers suffered a home defeat to Melbourne in a loss that leaves them outside the top 4 and looking vulnerable for the first time all season. They will be fired up though with David Mundy's retirement this week.

Western Bulldogs vs Fremantle match preview
This is a very difficult game to get a read on. Fremantle have travelled quite well this year with some home defeats, leaving them vulnerable in a quirky twist.
They have been unbeaten through 3 trips to Marvel Stadium this year, with wins also at the MCG against Melbourne and against Geelong in Geelong.
They need to respond soon with some critics feeling they may have hit the wall after a bold first half of the year.
The Western Bulldogs have struggled for consistency this season and often within games as last week demonstrated.
If the Western Bulldogs lose this game vs Fremantle, they almost certainly won't play finals so it is absolutely crunch time.
We think Fremantle might just squeeze it in.
