      Recap

      Galway vs Wexford – Leinster Hurling semi-final 2020, we have team News & live score commentary. Match start time is 6:15pm on Saturday in Croke Park.

      RTÉ Sport are televising Galway vs Wexford this weekend. The westerners are looking to put a poor 2019 in their rearview mirror. Meanwhile, Wexford’s Leinster win last year is something Davy Fitzgerald is hoping to emulate.

      The lockdown came at a bad time for Shane O’Neill whose Galway team had just begun putting a string of results together. The 2017 winners had not been themselves after 2018’s final defeat. Now, the lockdown and break from action has been a chance for the squad to reset themselves and mount a new challenge.

      2019 was a year of disappointment for the Galwegians. They failed to make it out of Leinster and had a short season as a consequence. But, now a competitive Club Chamionship leaves reason for optimism among Galway supporters. St. Thomas’ won their third title in a row. One of the standouts for St. Thomas’ was Fintan Burke’s performances at full-back. This could make Dáithí Burke free to play further out the field.

      However, it is a tough opener for Galway as Wexford proved themselves as the team to beat in Leinster last year. The long break means Davy Fitzgerald enters the Championship with a full squad at his disposal that is perhaps even stronger than last year’s contingent.

      But, it remains to be seen how Wexford adapt to Winter Hurling. Likewise, the absence of crowds will not work in Wexford’s favour. Fitzgerald will be hoping they can pick up from where they left off in the League.

      Galway are the favourites for this semi-final. Paddy Power price the westerners at 8/11. In contrast, are 11/8 and a draw is 8/1.

      RTÉ Sport are broadcasting the game live.

      Prediction: Draw.
