Gloucester have an outside chance of qualification but they need maximum points and rely on results elsewhere going their way to help them through to the final eight of the competition.

The Cherry and Whites and Biarritz Olympique have shared the spoils in their two previous encounters with one win each. The latest encounter came in October of last year when Gloucester emerged victorious 22-10 at Kingsholm.

Willie Walker has been in particularly scintillating form for Gloucester recently and will aim to build on his record of 48 points in 15 appearances this season.

ERC elite award winner and full-back Nicolas Brusque will no doubt hope to have an influence of the game and the top point scorer for the French outfit will have to be successful if they can pull off a victory against Gloucester.
