Rain, 8C

Leo Cullen's unbeaten team set off for Italy on a mission to secure the top seeding for the knockout stages.

Even a four-point win would mean a home quarter-final, and a home semi-final should they progress. 

Benetton won their last home game, against Lyon, and could record back-to-back home victories in the competition for the first time since the 2004/05 season.

James Ryan is back in harness for the visitors, who have named a very strong travelling panel

Partly cloudy, 6C

Ulster take a 100% head-to-head record into their sixth tournament meeting with Bath. 

Dan McFarland’s side are guaranteed qualification with a win at the Kingspan Stadium and could even top Pool 3 if Clermont slip up away to Harlequins. 

The hosts have won 12 of their last 13 home games in the competition, including each of their last eight matches. 

Bath, meanwhile, have lost their last six games, their worst run in Europe.

Tom O'Toole - who was this week named in Ireland's Six Nations squad - is the only change to the side defeated by Clermont last weekend. 

MUNSTER v OSPREYS

WEATHER
Mostly sunny, 6C

A draw at home to Racing 92 and a failure to pick up a point away to Saracens looks likely to cost Munster.

The two-time champs require a bonus point win against Ospreys but even that may not be enough to progress. 

Munster currently sit 11th in the qualification standings for the last eight, behind Saracens (14 points) who are also in their pool. Saracens host a Racing 92 team already assured of progression.

Gloucester (14 points), who take on already-qualified Toulouse in France, are another team above Johann van Graan's team at present.

Northampton (14 points) and Glasgow Warriors (12 points) who take on Lyon and Sale Sharks away respectively are also ahead of them.

If all of those sides win their final round of games, Munster would of course be definitively eliminated.

But if all four - or at least three from four - of Saracens, Gloucester, Northampton and Glasgow lose (even with losing bonus points) and Munster earn a bonus-point win, then the province would take one of the two final best runners-up places behind Ulster/Clermont.

Munster must do without Keith Earls, who has been ruled out with a knee injury

Connacht are out of contention after picking up just six points to date but welcome back Kieran Marmion. 

The Ireland scrum-half will make his first appearance in over two months as Connacht look to end their Heineken Champions Cup campaign on a high against a Montpellier side also out of the running. 

After the game attention will turn to the Guinness Pro14 where Cardiff are their next opponents at the Sportsground on 15 February.
