Bournemouth vs Southampton: Predictions
Things have been going terribly wrong in the Premier League for Southampton across recent months, with injuries ravaging Ralph Hasenhuttl’s squad and contributing to a run of just one win in their last 12 games. As a result, they’ve dropped to 14th in the table and cannot rule out being dragged into the relegation battle. Still, the FA Cup has been a source of solace, with the Saints making it past Shrewsbury, Arsenal and Wolves to reach the quarter-finals.
As for the hosts, they pulled off an impressive 3-0 win over Swansea City last time out to move within just one place and two points of the Championship playoffs, continuing their strong adjustment to life in the second tier following their relegation last season. The Cherries have had a slightly more straightforward route to the quarter-finals than Southampton, seeing off Oldham and Crawley Town before beating Burnley to reach this stage. Jonathan Woodgate will be keen to inspire his side to victory over their local rivals, firing them to their first-ever FA Cup semi-final.
