AFC Bournemouth vs Leicester City

, KO: 19:30 Feb 27, 2024, Vitality Stadium
Leicester City

Having found things difficult lately, Bournemouth will view the FA Cup as a springboard to get things back on track as they host Leicester City in a fifth round clash. The Cherries have a great record in this fixture and with Leicester also looking out of sorts lately, a home win could be considered.

Bournemouth eased past another Championship side to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup after claiming a 5-0 victory over Swansea City. They had five different scorers with Luis Sinisterra and Dominic Solanke among the goals.

It has been mostly downhill for Bournemouth since that result as they are winless in their last five matches, although three of those fixtures have ended in draws. Andoni Iraola’s men head into Tuesday’s clash off the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Manchester City in a Premier League fixture last Saturday.

While things have also been slightly erratic at the Vitality Stadium, Bournemouth have picked up a few key results at home in recent weeks. Beyond the win over Swansea City, they did hammer Fulham 3-0 while a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United is also among their recent results in front of their fans.

Leicester City ran out 3-0 winners over Birmingham City to secure a place in Tuesday’s clash. Following a goalless first half, Jamie Vardy opened the scoring right after the break while Yunnus Akgun and Dennis Praet were also on target.

Like Bournemouth, Leicester City have also lost their way in recent weeks as they travel to the Vitality Stadium with two straight Championship defeats. First they were beaten 2-1 at home by Middlesbrough before suffering a 3-1 defeat at Leeds United last Saturday.

While things have looked a bit rough for Leicester City in recent weeks, their away form might give them some confidence ahead of the clash with Bournemouth. Enzo Maresca’s men have suffered just two defeats in their last 10 away matches across all competitions.

How the bookies view it

Bournemouth are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 3/4 by Unibet. A victory for Leicester City is valued at 15/4 by bet365 while a draw is set at odds of 3/1 with Paddy Power.

Head to head

Bournemouth have a 5-4 advantage with five draws from 14 previous matches against Leicester City. The Cherries have also won the last three meetings and did the double over their rivals last season in the Premier League.

Players to watch

Dominic Solanke remains the biggest attacking threat for Bournemouth and has found the net seven times in the last 10 matches across all competitions. The striker was also on target in the fourth round victory over Swansea and is priced at 6/5 by bet365 to maintain his scoring run.

Jamie Vardy has four goals in the last four matches for Leicester City and could be given a run-out on Tuesday, with his experience likely to be vital. The veteran striker was also among the goals in the previous round and is priced at 11/4 by bet365 to score anytime.

Anything else catch the eye?

Bournemouth and Leicester City have attacking quality and both teams could be backed to score at 8/13 with William Hill. The Foxes saw over 3.5 goals last weekend and a repeat is priced at 6/4 by 10bet while William Hill is offering 8/13 for over 2.5 goals.

Having scored in both halves in the previous round, Bournemouth could be set for a similar pattern at 7/5 with Unibet.
