Dublin play Tipperary in Thurles Saturday in the second round of the All-Ireland qualifiers.
The last time the two sides met in the championship was in 2014 when Tipperary overcame Dublin 2-23 to 0-16 to progress to the semi-finals.
The two sides met at Croke Park in the league this year which ended with Tipperary coming out on top 1-08 to 1-24. But Dublin will be out for revenge and will have to deal with Tipperary having the home advantage. Semple Stadium hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Dublin in recent years so they will need to be at the top of their game. While Tipp will be looking to hit form if they are to reclaim the Liam McCarthy Cup this September.
Dublin overcame Laois last weekend where Eamon Dillon showed what a threat he is and hit the back of the Laois net twice. Dublin also had David Treacy making himself useful as Dublin progressed.
Defending champions Tipperary haven’t had the best of starts to the Championship after their shock defeat to Cork in the Munster Championship Quarter-Final. But put that defeat behind them comfortably beating Westmeath last week.
Tipperary will be clear favourites over Dublin for this tie who will be able to call on the likes Padriac Maher and Seamus Callanan to deliver a match winning performance.
