Mayo Goal Concession Rate V Dublin

(Oldest Posts First)

for me Mayos biggest issue against the Dubs is the goal concession rate

13 Final 2 goals
15 Game1 2 goals
15 game2 3 goals
16 game1 2 goals
16 game2. 1 goal
17. 1goal

11 goals conceded across 6 matches.
Averaging 1.83 goals per match.

Dubs conceded 6goals in above matches

the time we kept clean sheet against them in 12 we beat them. Donegal caused them problems under McGuinness because they didn't concede goals easily

Mayo must not concede goals Saturday. That means Sweeper, tactical fouling blacks/yellows taken if needed and probably Clarke in goal

Two of those goals were OGs in 16. So unlucky on that score. Dermo penalty in 15 also.

Every team that goes out to not concede goals v Dublin gets their arse handed to them.

McGuiness got far to much credit for his "rope a dope" trick in 2014.
Dubs missed two early goal chances which have forced Donegal into a plan B which McGuiness never had. They were too cocky as they were kicking points from 45m in the full belief that Donegal would fold up and roll over.

They got caught on the hop and can now play against that defensive system at their ease. Mayopressing is the only tactic

The one goal games in 2016 (replay) and 2017 were when we employed a sweeper and had Clarke in goal. Horan's tendency to do the opposite of both of these key factors would make me nervous in terms of preventing majors for the Dubs.

Donegal didn't in 11 or 14. Mayo conceded no goals in 12 and won

Total scores Mayo v Dublin 2013 to 2017
11-80 to 5-88

Doesn't take a genius to work out that goals were a huge factor in those matches.
