Gloucester travel to Italy in need of maximum points to keep them in the hunt in Pool 6.

The Cherry and Whites lost last time around at the Millennium Stadium to Cardiff Blues and need to bounce back against Calvisano.

It is the first meeting between the sides but Gloucester hope to make it third time lucky away to Italian opposition following wins to Roma and Viadana.

But the Italian champions have lost their last 26 games in the competition so Dean Ryan’s men should emerge victors.
