Bournemouth vs. Southampton Match Analysis and Prediction

Southampton has a chance to redeem their campaign when they take a short trip to the South Coast to take on Bournemouth in the FA Cup quarter-finals. The match schedules for Saturday at Vitality Stadium, with kickoff at 3:15 pm.

The Cherries advanced to the quarter-finals following a 2-0 victory over Burnley in the previous round, whereas Southampton registered a 2-0 win over Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jonathan Woodgate looks forward to maintaining a playoff charge for the Cherries, with promotion hopes still available. However, a FA Cup semifinal will come as a breath of fresh air for the Vitality faithful after a strong run in the cup so far.

It has been a tough road for Woodgate, who had to register wins over Oldham Athletic and Crawley Town at home before securing a 2-0 win over Burnley in the fifth round. Their success at Turf Moor sends them to the quarter-finals for the first time since the 1956-57 season.

After a win over Sheffield United boosted their chances of a top-half finish, back-to-back defeats to Manchester City and Brighton have seen the Saint’s continue their woeful 2021 campaign. Ralph Hassenhuttl takes the FA Cup run as a saving grace for the past couple of months. Their last run in the competition was back at Wembley in the 2017-2018 FA Cup campaign run.
