Can Galway Defeat Waterford Without Scoring A Goal? Lee Chin Isn't Sure

Can Galway Defeat Waterford Without Scoring A Goal? Lee Chin Isn't Sure

Lee Chin is one of the few people who has seen Galway and Waterford up close this summer.

The Wexford star saw his side lose to Galway in the Leinster Final, before they were knocked out in the All-Ireland quarter-finals by Waterford.


Ahead of Sunday's All-Ireland Final between the two sides, Chin was speaking to #GAANowLive on Thursday. He expects Galway to win, but feels their lack of goals could be their downfall.

The Leinster champions have not scored a goal in their last three games. Waterford have found the net on 11 occasions in five matches.

It's going to be a game, with maybe a single score in it. When you say a game is only going to have a single score [in it], you don't know which way it's going to go.

In my opinion, just through the fact that Galway have so much lads going into the All-Ireland Final that have been there before. They have so many people that have been on the field in an All-Ireland Final before, as opposed to Waterford two [players] and that was a good few years ago now.

I just think, based on experience, Galway just might nip it. But in All-Ireland Finals and the way Waterford set up in trying to limit the amount of scores the opposition get.

For Galway, I think in any game they've played this year, they've hit the high-20s in scores. I don't think Waterford will allow that to happen.

Galway haven't scored a goal in this year's Championship [since their opening game]. They're going to have to come up with a goal or two in the All-Ireland Final to maybe get there.

While Chin has a point, Galway have no issue putting the sliotar over the bar. In their four matches this summer, the Tribesmen have scored 112 points. No matter how good their points scoring is, Chin thinks they will need to find the back of the net too.
