After all the doubt and all the rumours surrounding this year’s football Championship, it is back. To add to the excitement, the Winter setting is sure to throw up a few left-field results. In Munster, Waterford vs Limerick kicks off the action.
These teams met all the way back in January in Division 4 of the National League. On that day, Limerick claimed a three-point win that set the trend for the rest of both counties’ League campaigns.
Limerick eventually topped the Division. Before the lockdown, Billy Lee’s side were in pole position for promotion. But, a defeat to Wexford in the first game back threatened to spoil the party. A win in Sligo in the final round ensured they got the finish they deserved.
Last season, Limerick’s Championship campaign left a lot to be desired. An opening win over Tipperary was a promising sign. But, they never came close to Cork in the Munster semi-final. Next, Westmeath eliminated them from the qualifiers in round 2.
Lee will be hoping that his side can take some of the confidence of their League win into their Championship. With no qualifiers this year, there is no time for settling in.
Meanwhile, Waterford lost to Antrim in their final League game. But, there was positives for the Munster side. Previously, they sat out round 6 because of London’s unavailability. Then, the Antrim fixture was on the verge of being called off. The Waterford players voiced concerns over having to isolate after traveling to Northern Ireland. Thankfully, Antrim agreed to meet them halfway. As a result, they got a much-needed match under their belt. Yet, they will still wish they had more time to prepare for this one.
Waterford have not beaten Limerick in the Championship since 1981. Without the guarantee of a second game this year, they need to be ready to go toe-to-toe with teams.
Limerick are favourites are 1/3. On the other hand, Waterford are 3/1 and a draw is 8/1 with Paddy Power. The game is live on GAA GO.
