This is the second semi-final of the FA Cup this season and will be played at Wembley. Leicester’s path to the semi-finals is very convincing as they have won against Stoke City, Brentford, Brighton and Man United. Obviously, these are opponents that are not easy to play, so it partly shows the determination that coach Brendan Rodgers for the FA Cup this season.
Meanwhile, Southampton entered the semi-finals while they played very poorly in the Premier League. In the FA Cup, The Saint surpassed Arsenal, Wolves and Bournemouth respectively. The lack of too many goals in the Premier League also shows that Hasenhuttl teachers and students can strive to find a ticket to the final.
This season, the two teams have only kicked the first leg in the Premier League and Leicester have won 2-0 at home. In the past 6 matches in the last 3 seasons, Leicester won 3, drew 1 and lost 2. In which, the two teams drew 0-0 in the 2018 League Cup. Broadly speaking, the two teams have 3 confrontations in tournaments Cup with Southampton unbeaten result, won 2 and drew 1 while all 3 matches kept a clean sheet.
Considering the achievements in the domestic cup tournaments in recent seasons, The Saints is also better when they entered the FA Cup semi-finals in 2017/18 or the final of the League Cup 2016/17 season. Meanwhile, the Fox has only entered the quarterfinals of the FA Cup for the first time since 1982 until now.
