Dublin offer no quarter
Gavin's men have enviable Croker record
You have to go back to 2009 and Kerry's coldly-executed massacre for the last time Dublin did't win an All-Ireland quarter-final.
Since then, they've won their seven subsequent quarter-finals by a combined 50 points, just over seven per match on average, and from Pat Gilroy's post-earwig side of 2010 to Jim Gavin's back-to-back chasing team of last summer, they have conceded just three goals at the last eight stage, two of which were scored by Fermanagh in 2015.
Their biggest win was against Monaghan (17 points) three years ago while their tightest margin of quarter-final victory was the three points they beat Laois by in 2012.
Dublin have, in that span of time, faced Ulster opposition on five such occasions (Tyrone twice, Monaghan, Fermanagh and Donegal) and Cork and Laois once apiece.
Mostly, Dublin haven't had much trouble at this stage of the Championship of late and they will take up their All-Ireland quest next Saturday week in Croke Park against one of this Saturday evening's protagonists.
Dublin can play one of three Ulster teams in this All-Ireland quarter-final. We run the rule over their potential opponents.
