The Aviva Premiership season reaches the final four and you can watch the semi-final between Wasps and Leicester Tigers exclusively live on BT Sport.

The clash at the Ricoh Arena takes places from 4.45pm on Saturday 20 May on BT Sport 1 and is available to stream on BTSport.com or on the award-winning BT Sport app.

And if you’re not yet a BT Sport subscriber – the only place showing the Champions Cup, Challenge Cup and Aviva Premiership finals – we can get you set up in just 15 minutes right here!

The hosts will be looking to break their semi-final streak having lost their last four across all competitions but their fortunes have been better in the Premiership with four victories from their six semi-final appearances.

Their home form has been the envy of the rest of the league too with a perfect record from their 11 home matches this season, the last time Wasps were defeated at the Ricoh Arena was back in December 2015 when Saracens came to town.

 

The Tigers have suffered a turbulent season with a changing of the guard earlier in the season as Director of Rugby Richard Cockerill left the club in January and then head coach Aaron Mauger departed in March.

The changes instigated a revival of Leicester’s season with the Tigers going on to win four of their final five Aviva Premiership matches and claiming a spot in this weekend’s semi-finals.

Wasps took the honours when the pair met in the regular season at the Ricoh, coming out 22-16 victors after racing into a 19-0 lead at half-time but Leicester’s second-half performance will give new head coach Matt O’Connor plenty of optimism heading into Saturday’s tie.

This is the two club’s first ever encounter at the semi-final stage in the Premiership, although the pair have met in the Premiership Final with London Wasps coming out on top 39-14 back in the 2004-05 season.

Will Wasps continue their incredible home form or can the Tigers spring a surprise and book their place in the Twickenham finale?
