This weekend’s tie should give Dublin fans a better impression of where they stand after two facile wins over a half-interested Cork and a less-interested Kerry.
Jim Gavin’s Dublin side has looked good in their victories beating Cork by six points and Kerry by ten points.
Mayo have also been impressive beating Kerry by six points and they lost to a strong Tyrone side by a point in a dramatic encounter.
Jim Gavin has made two changes to the side that beat Kerry impressively. Darragh Nelson and Declan O Mahoney take the places of Rory O Carroll and Michael Darragh Macauley.
Mayo is without attacking trio Andy Moran, Alan Dillon and Cillian O’Connor. Despite this they have named an experienced side for the encounter. Aidan O’Shea who has become the dominant figure for Mayo this season is named at centre-forward.
Players to Watch
Bernard Brogan is always a presence on the pitch. With memories of last years semi-final defeat still clear in the minds of the Dublin panel Bernard Brogan’s free taking is guaranteed to be up to scratch.
Aidan O’Shea has been a model of consistency for Mayo and is sure to be the danger man at centre forward tomorrow.
Dublin look like they will be good enough to gain victory over the Mayo side.
Value bet is Dublin to win by -2 at evens money.
