Sydney are back at the SCG to take on Essendon in a match that promises to be a thriller – if recent results are anything to go by.
These sides haven’t been separated by more than 10 points since 2018.
After the Bombers’ (2-6, 78.3%) shock win over Hawthorn last week, Essendon come into Saturday night’s clash full of confidence.

They’ve made four changes to that winning line-up, with Jordan Ridley, Jake Kelly, Matt Guelfi and Sam Durham back after the group missed Round 8 through illness.
The Swans’ (5-3, 118.4%) head into the SCG match on the back of a dismal loss to the Gold Coast, and now sit one win outside the top four.
But the home side welcome back big man Tom Hickey to pair with recruit Peter Ladhams for the first time, along with Sam Wicks and James Bell for Saturday night.
This match gets underway at 7:25pm AEST from the SCG.
Watch it live on Fox Footy (channel 504) from 7:15pm AEST.
