Saracens hammered Italians Viadana 71-7 at Vicarage Road on Saturday and will look to repeat the feat in Italy.

Alan Gaffney’s side haven’t won their last three matches away in the Heineken Cup but can take heart that there last win came on Italian soil.

The Guinness Premiership team beat Benetton Treviso 30-17 in 2005 and will need a similar score to remain one point clear of Glasgow Warriors in Pool 4.

Viadana have never won in the Heineken Cup before and it would be a major shock if Jim Love’s men pulled off a result – but in cup rugby, anything is possible.
