The game in focus:

Last time these two teams met was at Adelaide Oval for the 2019 Grand Final, where the Blues suffered a 45-point loss.

Carlton also narrowly lost their in-season game last year against Adelaide in Round 2.

After two wins this season and sitting in third place in conference B, Carlton will be looking to continue their winning form and secure the four points against the Crows.

The Blues are heading to Adelaide with one change to the line-up, opting for consistency against what has been a formidable opponent in prior meetings.

What to watch:

2019 Rising Star Madison Prespakis has started her 2020 campaign in elite form, scoring two 10’s in the AFLCA votes and making the Team of the Week twice.

A standout against the Crows in last year's Grand Final, Prespakis will again look to put in a dominant performance in Adelaide.

When the Blues faced the Crows in Round 2 last year, Nat Plane kicked two goals. While goal-less this season, this could be the game she puts a score on the board.

Nic Stevens has been building week-to-week in a new role up forward after spending the majority of her AFLW career in the backline. Bluebaggers will be keen to see how the newly minted forward fairs against the Crows in enemy territory. 

Player in focus:

Georgia Gee will be looking forward to the Round 4 hit out, eager to follow up what was a breakout performance for the young star against the Bulldogs last week.

Gee finished with eight disposals, three goals and six tackles to finish player of the match for the Blues in the Round 3 hit out.

The third-year Blue will be eager to back up her impressive performance and establish herself among Carlton's best.

Blue View:

The Blues are sitting top 3 in the conference B ladder as they approach the halfway point in 2020.

A win in Round 4 will put them in good stead to compete for a finals spot come the end of the AFLW season.

Wanting to forget an uneventful Grand Final, a win against Adelaide will put them in high spirits come finals time.
