How have both teams played this season?

The rise of Armagh has been one of the primary plotlines this year, illustrated by their remarkable journey to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.

The Orchard County, knocked out of the Ulster championship by Donegal, entered the All-Ireland series in the qualifiers.

In their first game, they stunned All-Ireland champions Tyrone by bringing their defence of Sam Maguire to an undignified end.

Next up was Donegal, against whom Armagh gained a measure of revenge by beating Declan Bonner’s men.

Comparatively speaking, Galway’s has been more straightforward.

Their headline championship win this year was in Connacht when they disposed of Mayo. From there, they went on to beat Roscommon to win the provincial title.

By virtue of that, this will be Padraic Joyce’s side’s first game of the All-Ireland series this year.
