Leo Cullen has urged Leinster to "finish the job" and clinch a home Champions Cup quarter-final with a record-breaking victory against Benetton.

Cullen's side have won 15 games in a row this season, equalling the record previously set by Leinster during the 2001/02 campaign for successive victories by a European club, and will progress into the quarter-finals as top seeds if they win in Italy on Saturday.

"We know the importance of home quarter-finals in this competition," the Leinster head coach told RTÉ Sport.

"We’d all be kicking ourselves if there were things within our control during the game that we don’t execute on.

"Everyone has worked hard over the course of this block. It’s about finishing the job now.

"It became quite clear with the way the other pools unfolded last weekend – win the game, get the top seed and we can move on then."

Leinster were 33-19 victors over Benetton in round one of the European competition but the Italians have been a troublesome opponent in recent years.

Benetton won at the RDS in 2018 and drew at the same venue last season, while just five points separated the teams when Leinster won at Stadio Monigo on the opening weekend of the Pro14 in September.

"We know what a dangerous team they are," said Leinster flanker Josh van der Flier, who starts at openside against Benetton.

"They always stay in games. It will be a difficult task and we'll need to put in our best performance."

"We’ve had some really good tussles with them," added Cullen.

"The fact they know us well as a group and have played against us numerous times, there is familiarity between both teams and a clear understanding of what each other are trying to do."
