Knockout hurling – Dublin vs Cork: Hurling – Live score commentary and Starting teams for the clash that starts at 3:45pm on Saturday.
Dublin and Cork will get a second bite at the cherry this weekend after their defeats to Kilkenny and Waterford respectively. The Dubs were eliminated by Laois in the qualifiers last year in a shock defeat. The pressure is on now to show they can compete with the big guns. Meanwhile, Cork are looking to bounce back from a surprising defeat of their own against Waterford.
Firstly, Dublin saw off Laois in Croke Park to avenge last year’s elimination. Then, they came up against Kilkenny and saw a brave comeback fall just short of the line.
At half-time, Dublin were down by fifteen after scoring just 0-7 in the opening period. But, goals from Ronan Hayes and Chris Cummey helped them rally and they drew level with just minutes to go. Kilkenny managed to fight to victory though and Dublin have no more second chances.
Otherwise, Cork were the victims of an upset in Semple Stadium last weekend.
After a bright start, a twelve minute dry-spell in the first-half left the rebels three off the pace at half-time. The second-half began the same way and Cork found themselves down 1-19 to 0-14 after 40 minutes.
By the final quarter, Waterford’s lead was just five but Cork couldn’t get any closer. Waterford finished strongly and when Patrick Horgan scored a goal in injury time for the rebels it was too late.
Last weekend, tough conditions ensured heavy ground under foot. Hence, the quick turnaround is not ideal for either side. But, Dublin will be grateful for the Croke Park surface last weekend and will hope Cork are feeling the effects of the winter conditions.
Paddy Power suggest Cork are going through. They have the Munster men at 8/15. In contrast, Dublin are 15/8 and a draw is 9/1.
The game is live on Sky.
Prediction: Draw. Dublin showed fight against Kilkenny and will be eager not to lose out so early in the competition for a consecutive year. If it does go to extra time though, Cork will have a bit more in the tank.
