A draw would be enough for Kerry to secure a semi-final place. A defeat would also see them through if Donegal beat Mayo. If Kerry lost and Mayo won, Mayo would go through, with the second place between Kerry and Donegal decided on scoring returns. 

They meet in the championship for the first time since 2009 when Kerry won an All Ireland semi-final clash by four points. Having lost their two previous games, Meath are out of contention.
