Former professional footballers have said it’s worse to lose a semi-final than get to the final and fail there. Sunday’s FA Cup semi final is certainly a game neither team want to lose and you can get a Watford vs Wolves live stream to see who will triumph.
Watford vs Wolves FA Cup semi-final – where and when
The Watford vs Wolverhampton Wanderers FA Cup semi-final showdown will take place at Wembley Stadium in London, UK.
The game itself kicks off today – Sunday, April 7 – at 4.00pm BST (11am ET or 8am PT in the US, and 1am AEST in Australia on Monday morning).
They’re within touching distance of the FA Cup Final against Man City, an achievement which would be the icing on the cake of either team’s excellent season, but first the Premier League’s ‘best of the rest’ (the clubs sit 8th and 7th in the league respectively) have to lock horns under the arch at the spiritual home of football, Wembley Stadium. Out of the two semi finals, this one is the hardest to call, with Watford and Wolverhampton Wanderers matching each other in the league.
If Watford were to win this weekend, it would be their first FA Cup Final appearance since 1984, while Wolves haven’t reached the final game of the competition since they won it in 1960.
In short, a little bit of history will be made for one of the teams on Sunday. Below we’re going to talk you through the best ways to watch the FA Cup semi-final action in the UK and the rest of the world so you can ensure you can easily live stream Watford vs Wolves.

Watford vs Wolves…who will win?
The Hornets won the only meeting between the clubs so far this season, snatching a 2-0 victory at Wolves’ Molineux Stadium back in October, but Wolves have excelled in the high-pressure games against the ‘big six’ and come into Sunday off the back of a rousing 2-1 win over Manchester United on Tuesday night.
That said, Watford managed to register a thumping 4-1 victory the same evening against Fulham, so it’s fair to say both teams will enter the Wembley tunnel brimming with confidence.
As you settle down to watch the Watford vs Wolves live stream you’ll want to keep your eye on the key players for each team. Watford will likely lean on influential leader and club captain Troy Deeney, who will lead the line and set the tone and tempo for his team mates. With flair players Maxi Pereyra and Gerard Deulofeu, Watford have the creativity and skill in midfield to trouble the Wolves defense, but they certainly won’t have it all their own way.
Wolves have a potent strike force with the free-scoring Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota troubling the best teams in the country this season, and with Ruben Neves pulling the strings from midfield they’ll fancy their chances against a Watford defense that hasn’t always looked solid.
