      Louth and Longford were both successful at this stage of the competition in 2019. But, initial success was followed by defeats. For Louth, that was as good as it got as they were knocked out in the first qualifying round GAA fixture. Longford went just one round further before being dumped by Tyrone.

      In January, these sides met in the first round of the League. On that occasion, Longford were three-point winners.

      That set the trend for Louth in the League. However, most recently the beat Down on the final day to gather some much-needed confidence ahead of the Championship. Otherwise, Longford are without as much match practice. Furthermore, the one competitive game they have played since the restart ended in defeat to Derry.

      Longford manager Padraic Davis hasn’t had the luxury of using a full club Championship to prime his players. Unfortunately, Longford’s club Championship suffered worse than most and many games were postponed. In fact, the Senior Football Championship has still not been completed. Hence, it is hard to know what to expect from Longford when they are in the heat of knock-out Championship.

      Paddy Power still see Longford as 1/2 favourites to advance. Meanwhile, Louth are 2/1 underdogs and a draw is 15/2.

      The match is live on GAA GO.

      Prediction: Louth.

      Leinster Senior Football Championship Round 1: Louth vs Longford, Sunday, November 1st, 13:30 (Mullingar).
