Carlton is expected to reverse the results from Round 10 and win by 13 points. Both teams are expected to make errors given the pressure of the encounter.
The teams will meet at 13:45 on Saturday, 17 August 2019 at the MCG in Melbourne. St Kilda has only won a single premiership up until now, in 1966, and the most recent minor premiership they won was back in 2009 during the AFL season. They managed to build a reputation of underachievers precisely because of their record of finishing last more than any other team in the league. They have also recorded the second-lowest all-time win percentage.
During their head-to-head encounters, Carlton managed to win 162 games, with St Kilda gaining 56 wins during their 220 played matches. The teams also recorded a tie twice. During their last meeting during round 10, the Saints won by 9.14 (68) to 8.7 (55). Cripps and Walsh proved again why they are the stars of the team, while the rest of the players failed to rise to expectations and performed poorly. During the last round, Carlton was defeated by Richmond by 28, while St Kilda was defeated by 3 at Docklands.
