Bournemouth v Southampton live stream, BT Sport, Saturday 20 March, 12.15pm GMT

Southampton will be looking to advance to the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the second time in four seasons when they face Bournemouth on Saturday.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are in need of a pick-me-up, having seen their Premier League form collapse in recent weeks. Southampton occupied top spot in the top flight at one point this season, and a victory over Liverpool in December moved them up to sixth place. It has been a largely miserable time for Saints fans since then, though, with just one win from their last 12 Premier League outings.

That run has seen Southampton slide from the Europa League qualification spots into a potential relegation battle. Hasenhuttl’s men are nine points clear of the bottom three going into the weekend, but that margin could shrink if results go against them.

Southampton will therefore welcome the opportunity to turn their attention back towards the FA Cup. They have already beaten Shrewsbury, Arsenal and Wolves in this season’s competition, and are favourites to overcome Championship opposition despite their poor record in 2021.

Bournemouth have also dropped off of late, although Jonathan Woodgate did oversee an impressive 3-0 victory over Swansea in midweek. The Cherries are two points adrift of the play-off places, and there may well be some people at the club who would rather see Bournemouth focus on their promotion push. The chance to reach a first ever FA Cup semi-final is certainly appealing, though.

Southampton will have to make do without Theo Walcott, Oriol Romeu, Danny Ings, Will Smallbone and Michael Obafemi for the first FA Cup quarter-final of the weekend.

Bournemouth will be unable to call upon the services of Adam Smith, David Brooks and Lewis Cook, with the latter out until next season due to a knee injury. Woodgate is likely to name a strong side despite Bournemouth's priorities lying elsewhere.

Kick-off is at 12.15pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Bournemouth v Southampton live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
