Poll: Who will win today's All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals?

The last two spots in the football semi-finals are up for grabs.
Aug 9th 2014, 6:45 AM 4,874 2

FOUR TEAMS WILL take the field at Croke Park today with just two All-Ireland Senior Football Championship semi-final places up for grabs.

The day’s first game (throw-in 4pm) is an all Ulster affair as the Anglo Celt Cup holders Donegal take on Armagh in headquarters for the first time since the 2003 semi-final.

Armagh won that game by four points and have emerged victorious in 15 of the 25 championship meetings between the pair. However, Jim McGuinness’ men have won three of the last four Ulster titles and come into today’s game as 1/4 favourites.

The second game (throw-in 6pm) sees 2013 Ulster champions Monaghan take on the Dublin who are looking to win back-to-back Sam Maguires for the first time since 1977.

Monaghan needed extra-time to overcome Kildare at the Jones Road venue in miserable conditions last week while Dublin have easily accounted for Laois, Wexford and Meath in their three championship games so far which is why they are overwhelming 1/20 favourites.

However, what we want to know is, who do you think will come out on top in today’s quarter-finals.

Poll Results:

Donegal & Dublin (1420)
Armagh & Dublin (330)
Donegal & Monagahan (155)
Armagh & Monaghan (88)
Dublin & Draw (40)
Draw & Draw (22)
Donegal & Draw (8)
Monaghan & Draw (7)
Armagh & Draw (2)
