The upcoming AFL finals showdown on Friday night at the MCG will feature a clash between Carlton Blues and Sydney Swans.

This marks Carlton’s return to the finals for the first time since 2013. Although their impressive nine-match winning streak was halted in Round 24 by a loss to GWS Giants, the Blues are still considered as one of the contenders in the premiership race.

Similarly, the Sydney Swans saw their winning streak come to an end in Round 24 with a defeat against Melbourne. They will be aiming to bounce back and secure their place in the next round of AFL finals.

This weekend, Carlton are likely to have Patrick Cripps and Sam Docherty, experienced players who were previously injured, back in action. There is also a possibility of small forward Jesse Motlop making his return.

Meanwhile, for Sydney, Tom Papley and Justin McInerney are expected to make a comeback from their injuries.

Both Carlton Blues and Sydney Swans have been performing well over the past few months. Despite being written off during mid-season, they enter the finals series with momentum on their side.

The Swans haven’t managed to win in any of their three visits to the MCG this season, and again they enter this match as the underdogs.

While their performance during the first half of games has been impressive, the Swans have struggle in final quarters for much of the season.

On the other hand, with most of their best 22 available, the Carlton Blues will be hard to beat as they look to stamp their premiership credentials.
