How to watch today’s Carlton Blues vs Adelaide Crows AFL match: Livestream, TV channel, and start time | Goal.com Australia

Everything you need to know on how to watch today’s AFL game between Carlton and Adelaide- team news, livestream, TV channel, and start time.

The Carlton Blues (4-0) will be out to protect their perfect record in the 2024 AFL season when they take on the Adelaide Crows (0-4) at Marvel Stadium on Saturday.

The two sides have had contrasting fortunes in 2024. The Blues are one of four sides that are undefeated, having opened up their season with four wins, while the Crows are yet to register a victory so far in 2023.

The Blues are coming off a thrilling victory over Fremantle in Gather Round, pinching the contest late against the Dockers by 10 points. They have shown incredible resilience and fortitude to edge out closely-contested games so far this season.

Adelaide, who went down to Melbourne by 15, have been on the other end of the spectrum, with mistakes costing them games when they have been in the contest for long periods.

The Crows are already losing ground with the top eight as they hope to become just the second AFL/VFL side since 1975 to start a season with four straight losses and still squeeze into the finals.

Here, GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch Carlton vs Adelaide in the AFL, plus plenty more.
