Semi-Final

Leicester City v Southampton FC

Leicester City will be looking to secure their place in the FA Cup final for the fifth time when they face Southampton FC in a semi-final game on April 18.
 
The Foxes have taken part in four finals and they have never won the tournament which is the oldest association football competition in the world.
 
Leicester's last final appearance came in 1969 and they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City at the Wembley Stadium.

The Foxes had edged out West Bromwich Albion 1-0 in a semi-final game at the historic Hillsborough Stadium. 
 
Meanwhile, Leicester are winless in their last two matches having succumbed to a defeat to West Ham United in their most recent game on April 11.
 
The Hammers secured a 3-2 win over the Foxes, who have now recorded two consecutive defeats in the Premier League. 
 
The Foxes will now be keen to return to winning ways when they face Southampton and go on to clinch their first-ever FA Cup trophy this season.

Ricardo Perreira, the Leicester right-back, reflected on their clash with West Ham and he is looking forward to their FA Cup tie against the Saints. 
 
"We showed that we could play well. We showed in the second half, but at the same time, it's our fault and we have to do better, especially in the first half," Pereira said. 
 
"We have the quality to do it, but we didn't, so we have to learn from that and be better next week. So, it's not that important which game it's going to be, or which competition."
 
The last time Leicester and Southampton met in the FA Cup was on 05 January 2008. 
 
Southampton ran out 2-0 winners over Leicester in the third round match which was played at the St Mary's Stadium.
