Melbourne and Carlton have locked in their final teams for Friday night’s Semi Final, with no late changes.
Josh Schache has been brought in as Melbourne’s tactical substitute and the 26-year-old will play just his third game of 2023.
Meanwhile, Oliver Hollands will return as Carlton’s substitute after missing last week’s Elimination Final win over Sydney.
The MCC is expecting between 94,000 and 95,000 fans to pack into the MCG in what would be a record-breaking crowd for a Semi Final between these two sides.
A crowd of any more than 92,000 would also set the MCG AFL season attendance record with two games still to play at the MCG.
The first bounce is slotted for 7:50pm AEST.
