Your Guide To The Allianz Football League Weekend

We have reached the final round of group games in the Allianz Football League and there is still so much to play for across the divisions. 

Dublin will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat to Tyrone last weekend when they visit Breffni Park on Sunday. Their hosts, Cavan, look all but set to go straight back down to Division 2, barring an unlikely combination of results.

Kerry remain on track for a place in the Allianz League Division 1 final but who will join them is anyone’s guess as Mayo, Galway, and Tyrone are all in the hunt heading into the final weekend. It sets up for an exciting encounter in Healy Park as Mickey Harte’s men host Galway, looking to maintain their fantastic comeback from early defeats in the League.

Meanwhile, Monaghan need to beat Mayo to guarantee their place in Division 1 of the Allianz League while James Horan’s side who will be hoping that a win in MacHale Park will see them into the League final.

Everything is up for grabs in Division 2 with four teams fighting it out for promotion while at the other end of the table, Clare, Tipperary, and Cork will all be hoping to retain their Division 2 status. The Rebels left themselves with a mountain to climb following last week’s heavy defeat to Donegal. Should they win against Antrim and Tipperary beat Clare, Cork will survive in the second division of the Allianz League.

Down find themselves one win away from promotion from Division 3 as they prepare to face Louth on Sunday. Wayne Kierans’ side may lie in fifth in the table but they could still, mathematically, secure promotion to Division 2 of the Allianz League with Laois, Westmeath, and Longford also fighting it out for a top two spot.

Sligo have already been relegated to the bottom division for 2020 and their opponents this week, Offaly will be heading the same direction should they lose on Sunday. A win, coupled with a Carlow loss to Laois would seem them avoid relegation.

The Allianz Hurling League semi-finals take centre stage in television coverage this week but TG4 will be providing deferred coverage of Tyrone v Galway from 5.20pm on Sunday while the game will be streamed live on the Sport TG4 YouTube channel.
