Brive's away form in the Challenge Cup is nothing short of atrocious. They have lost all of their last eight European Rugby Challenge Cup fixtures in the tournament, although they have managed to pick up a losing bonus point in four of the last six defeats. Each of their last three visits to England in all tournaments, have ended in defeat. However, the Challenge Cup has rarely been high on the list of the Warriors priorities in recent seasons, as they have concentrated on Premiership survival, and as the result the are on a run of six successive losses, in five of which they scored fewer than 15 points. With Brive sitting in seventh position in the Top 14 tournament, they too will likely be more concerned with domestic matters, than European glory.
