Dublin v Mayo
Saturday, August 10th. 5:00pm
Croke Park, Dublin
The biggest crowd of the year is expected at GAA Headquarters this evening. Dublin and Mayo play out what could be another classic in this year’s All Ireland Senior Football Semi Final. Both have traversed their Championship roads. And they find themselves pitted against each other for the eight time this decade. The seventh since Mayo beat Dublin in the 2012 Semi Final.
Under Jim Gavin, Mayo have yet to yet to record a win against Dublin, and on paper they may find it difficult this evening. Nonetheless Mayo always bring their A game against the Dubs and tonight is expected to be the usual heated clash we’ve come to expect.
Dublin have reverted to their regular starting 15 for the throw in, and see Cian O’Sullivan start for the first time since the Super 8’s opener against Cork. Diarmuid Connolly is in the panel, and it’s being reported that the Vincent’s man may even start.
Mayo have been significantly weakened by injuries to captain Diarmuid O’Connor and Jason Doherty.
One of the main reasons Mayo have been able to put it up to Dublin like no other team in recent years is because of the athleticism and scoring ability of their half-forwards, but the absence of O’Connor and Doherty dulls their edge here.
Players could still be feeling the effects of a physically and emotionally draining contest against Donegal last weekend whereas Dublin had the luxury of resting most of their front-liners against Tyrone.
