How to watch Dublin v Cork
Coverage starts on Sky Sports Arena at 5:45pm.
After a shocking National League campaign by their own standards ,which saw Dublin relegated to Division 2, Dessie Farrell's side have raised their game and cruised to another Leinster title without having to really leave second gear.
On their road to the quarterfinals, they've overcome Wexford, Meath and Kildare, racking up a whopping 7-67 in those three games. Dean Rock and Con O'Callaghan will certainly be their side's dangermen yet again and the pair have combined for 3-30 in the championship so far.
Cork crashed out of the Munster SFC in the semifinal after a 0-23 to 0-11 defeat at the hands of eventual champions Kerry. After that, Cork were drawn against Mickey Harte's Louth in the first round of the qualifiers, winning 2-12 to 2-8. John Cleary's side beat Limerick in the last round to set up an All-Ireland SFC quarterfinal clash against the Dubs.
Steven Sherlock has been a standout performer for his side this year and has scored 16 points in his past two games. Brian Hurley is another man that Dublin will need to be wary of and the full forward has scored goals in each round of the qualifiers.
Dublin are coming into the game as heavy favourites and there's no doubt Cork will need everything to go in the favour if they're to cause a huge upset this weekend.
