Although Gloucester have already wrapped up top spot in Pool 5 of the European Rugby Challenge Cup, Oyonnax from the French Top 14 tournament could still sneak a quarter final spot as one of the three best runners-up. However, with three wins and two defeats, both to Gloucester, the French side who have yet to secure a single bonus-point in their qualifying matches, are likely to need a try-scoring bonus point win against the Italians from Parma, Zebre, at the Stade Charles Mathon, Oyonnax on Thursday.

When the sides met in Italy in Round 1 of the tournament, Oyonnax were victorious by 33-24, outscoring the home side by 3 tries to 2. However, missing out of a quarter-final spot will probably not be too distressing for either team.

Oyonnax, who just avoided relegation from the Top 14 last season, are only five points clear of the relegation position after 16 rounds of their domestic tournament, and they will be more concerned with their Top 14 future, than possible but not probable European glory. Zebre need to finish about their Italian rivals Treviso in the Guinness PRO12 in order to secure a Champions Cup place next season. After Round 13 of the competition, they trail their countrymen by 3 points.
