This match is knock-out rugby. If the Ospreys win, they are through as Pool winners. Defeat, and that’s the end of their European season. Leicester could lose, but if they do, they would be sitting precariously in one of the best runner-up positions and could find themselves out if results in Pool 2,5 or 6 go against them.

It should be a cracker at the Liberty Stadium between two teams who regard passage to the latter stages of the Heineken Cup as a must.

Leicester won the round 1 fixture, but only just. Sean Holley will tell his side to believe they can repeat their EDF Energy cup final win over the Tigers. That match ended 23-6 to the Welsh region who have aspirations of conquering Europe, just as Leicester did in 2001 and 2002.
