Team Performances and Stats

Kerry has won four out of their five championship games this year, showcasing their consistent form. They have secured a spot in the quarter-finals for the 21st time, having never missed out since the introduction of the qualifier system in 2001 (excluding 2020 and 2021 when there were no quarter-finals). Notably, Kerry’s only quarter-final defeats occurred in 2010 against Down and in 2012 against Donegal. They hold the distinction of being the only county to have qualified for every quarter-final.

On the other hand, Tyrone enters the quarter-finals for the 16th time, having won two, drawn one, and lost two of their five games in the championship so far. Their recent victory against Kerry in the Allianz League by a three-point margin will undoubtedly boost their confidence.

Goalscoring Dynamics

Kerry’s attacking prowess was evident as they netted five goals against both Clare and Louth during this year’s championship. However, they managed to find the back of the net only once in their encounters with Tipperary, Cork, and Mayo. Tyrone, meanwhile, scored a total of two goals across their five games, indicating a focus on point-scoring proficiency.

As the stage is set for this highly anticipated clash, Kerry’s manager Jack O’Connor, who has led the team in eight previous quarter-finals, boasts an impressive track record with six wins and two losses. The defeats came against Down in 2010 and Donegal in 2012, emphasizing the need for Kerry to bring their A-game against Tyrone.
