Galway beat Wexford by eight points in Round 1 of this year’s Allianz hurling League in Chadwicks Wexford Park.
Wexford are seeking their first win over Galway in the championship since the 1996 All-Ireland semi-final, which was also the last time they won the All- Ire- land title.
Galway won three and lost two of their five Allianz League games this year, finishing third in their group; Wexford won and lost four in the same group, fin- ishing fifth (of six).
Goals have been scarce in recent Galway-Wexford championship games. The last five games in 2017-18-19-20-22 produced only five goals (3-2 to Galway).
Galway manager Henry Shefflin played eleven times for Kilkenny against Wex- ford in the championship, winning ten and losing one (2004 Leinster semi-final).
