Two teams harbouring top four aspirations for the 2019 season meet in what has quickly become a crucial Round 1 encounter at Spotless Stadium.

Essendon is knee deep in the great unknown, making it nearly impossible to make a prediction about its season — the more footy we see from the Bombers, the easier it will be to assess them.

GWS is in a similar boat because they have just lost a handful of good players through retirement and free agency.

Dylan Shiel is the Giant midfielder who made his way to Essendon during the trade period. This trade will benefit the Bombers immensely, but has hindered the Giants.

Key position players Joe Daniher and Cale Hooker will not play in this match as they both have calf injuries.

Whether the Giants can make due with the midfielders they currently have will be the main question for this match.

If the Bombers can beat the Giants talented forward line, they could come away with the chocolates.

Giants vs. Bombers same game multi analysis

This same game multi will rely on the Giants winning the match by less than 39-points.

If the contest is close, which it is expected to be, then the winning margin will not blow out beyond 39-points.

Tim Taranto is entering his third year in the AFL system and will mark further progression this season with a big round 1 game.

Stephen Coniglio is the number one midfielder for the Giants, while Josh Kelly is out recovering from knee surgery.

Coniglio is a star for GWS and will easily get over 25 disposals. If Stephen can build upon his 2018 average of 28 per match, he will be a walk in each round to get 25 disposals.

With Joe Daniher and Cale Hooker not playing for the Dons, it will be up to Mitch Brown to play full forward.
Brown is another tall player that can mark well and converts more set-shots than he misses, which he will need to do in order for the Bombers to win.
