What's at stake? 

It's round one of the All-Ireland football round-robin series. Dublin are the first seed in group three, with Roscommon, Kildare and Sligo making up the other three teams. Kildare and Sligo played out a draw last weekend meaning a win for either side on Sunday puts them top of the group.

Form Guide

Roscommon have been out of action for the last five weeks, giving them plenty of time to prepare for the clash. They enjoyed a fruitful league campaign finishing third in the table. However, since then they've played just two championship games, knocking the division one champions Mayo out of Connacht by four points in the quarter-finals, before being beaten in the semi-final by Galway 1-13 to 1-09.


It's hard to know where Roscommon stand after such a long break, Mayo had a similar break and came back better with their win over Kerry last weekend. If Roscommon have built on their already very strong performances this season over the break, this might not be a walk in the park for Dublin.

Following their Division Two title. Dublin are now also your Leinster Champions for the 13th consecutive season.  They disposed of Laois without any resistance, however, they got a scare in their two-point semi-final win over Kildare who deprived them of any space and put their attack under pressure turning a ruthless machine stagnant. Despite the scare, they looked back to themselves when they thrashed Louth by 21 points in the final.


If Dublin show up this weekend Roscommon will be only at their mercy, however, if Roscommon push them into stagnant play an early upset in the capital could be on the cards.


Team News


Stephen Cluxton remains as Dessie Farrell's go-to goalkeeper over David Hanlon. Cian Murphy comes into the lineup as an indirect swap for Jack McCaffrey who presumably is still suffering the effects of his injury against Louth. Up front Dean Rock remains on the bench while Kilkenny, Mannion and O'Callaghan all start in what is shaping up to be a very dangerous Dublin team.


Davy Burke has also named his Roscommon team with Brian Stack set to lead the pack out in Croke Park come Sunday. Keith Doyle and Ciarán Lennon pair up in the middle of the park. Conor Daly is indirectly replaced by Cian McKeon in Davy Burke's sole swap from their loss to Galway.

That's all the info you need on how to watch Dublin v Roscommon in the All-Ireland Football series this weekend.
