In the upcoming match, the Demons have their sights set on securing a victory to put pressure on Port Adelaide and Brisbane, who currently hold the 2nd and 3rd positions on the ladder. As the 2021 premiers, Melbourne sits at 4th place, just one game behind Port Adelaide, and a mere 0.9% separates them from Brisbane.

On the other hand, North Melbourne finds itself in the 17th position with only two wins this season. Their losing streak has now extended to 16 after a close defeat against the bottom-placed West Coast in Round 20, where they lost by just five points. Despite the exceptional efforts of Harry Sheezel and Luke Davies-Uniacke, both managing 30+ disposals, and Paul Curtis, who scored four goals, it wasn't enough to secure a victory.
Melbourne, in contrast, showcased their class during a thrilling match against Richmond. They impressively booted the last five goals of the game, sealing a 32-point victory in a high-scoring battle at the MCG. Harrison Petty, Jason Van Rooyen, and Jake Melksham combined for an impressive 14 goals, while Max Gawn dominated the ruck with 40 hitouts and 28 disposals. The team's strength was further bolstered by Christian Petracca and Jack Viney.
Considering the talent and firepower at the disposal of the Demons, North Melbourne faces a tough challenge. In their most recent encounter with Melbourne, they suffered a 90-point loss in Round 7 this season. As they prepare for the upcoming match, North Melbourne will be eager to improve upon their previous performance against the formidable Demons.
