Both clubs are undoubtedly going through a rough patch, with the hosts winning just two of their last five matches in all competitions. They have been sorely missing leading striker Raul Jimenez, and have slipped to 14th in the table.
But the Saints have also been struggling massively in recent weeks. They have lost their last four matches in all competitions, including a 9-0 thrashing against Manchester United. Their last victory was in the FA Cup, when they beat Arsenal 1-0 at St Mary’s last month.
That win against the Gunners came just four days after Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men overcame Shrewsbury in round three. Dan Nlundulu and James Ward-Prowse got the goals in the 2-0 win, with a Gabriel own goal all that was needed to beat Mikel Arteta’s outfit.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have also enjoyed success against a fellow Premier League club in the earlier stages of the competition. Adama Traore netted the only goal of the game in a round three win over Crystal Palace. Wolves followed that victory up by beating Chorley by the same scoreline in the fourth-round, with youngster Vitor Ferreira firing his side into the fifth-round.
The two clubs have met four times in the famous competition, sharing the spoils with two wins each. They last met here all the way back in 2003, with the Saints winning 2-0 on their way to the final. A Robert Pires goal then broke Southampton hearts at Millennium Stadium.
But it is Wolves who certainly have recent history on their side. They have lost just one of their previous ten meetings with Southampton in all competitions. The league meeting at Molineux earlier this season, however, ended in a 1-1 draw. The hosts are looking to make it three successive clean sheets in the tournament for the first time since 1976.
A home win has been given odds of 19/13.
An away victory is currently 23/10, with a draw available at 12/5.
Danny Ings is favourite to break the deadlock at 24/5, followed closely by Willian Jose at 27/5.
