Bournemouth vs Leicester City: FA Cup Live Stream, Form Guide, Head to Head, Schedule, Fixture and Probable Lineups

An intriguing FA Cup fifth-round encounter is set at the Vitality Stadium as Bournemouth welcomes Championship leaders Leicester City. Bournemouth heads into the match after a 1-0 home defeat to reigning champions Manchester City, while Leicester suffered a 3-1 loss to Leeds United in their recent top-of-the-table clash. Bournemouth had to secure two victories to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup, beginning with a 3-2 win against Queens Park Rangers on January 6 and following up with a dominant 5-0 win against Swansea City.

Despite the recent struggles, Bournemouth displayed positive signs against Manchester City, but missed opportunities led to a defeat. Currently sitting 14th in the Premier League table, eight points clear of the relegation zone, their upcoming league fixtures against the bottom three teams could boost their confidence. However, their immediate focus is on securing a spot in the FA Cup quarter-finals. This FA Cup game marks the first-ever meeting between the two sides in the competition. While Leicester is determined to secure promotion to the Premier League, they have recently won the FA Cup, in the 2020-21 campaign.

Leicester currently leads the Championship table with 78 points from 34 matches, six points ahead of second-placed Leeds United and third-placed Ipswich Town. However, they faced setbacks in their last two matches, losing to Middlesbrough and Leeds, and will be under pressure to bounce back in their upcoming league game against QPR. In this season’s FA Cup, Leicester defeated Millwall 3-2 in the third round and secured a 3-0 victory over Birmingham in the previous round.
