Benetton Treviso will host the Ospreys at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo on Saturday in the final round of European Rugby Champions Cup qualifiers. With both sides having disappointing qualifying campaigns, the fixture is effectively a "dead rubber", with nothing but pride at stake for the two sides.

The Ospreys only victory in the Pool stages came in Round 1, when they posted a try-scoring bonus point victory at the liberty stadium against Benetton Treviso, eventually running out winners by 42-7. They also drew at home with Racing Metro 19-19, but apart from those results, it has been three defeats for the leading Welsh Region. Last week's 9-20 loss at the Liberty to the Northampton Saints, finally confirmed their elimination from the tournament.

The Italian side have lost all five of their fixtures to date, so will be hoping to sign off with a positive result at least. Those losses have seen them concede an average of nearly seven tries per game, while they have crossed their opponents line a mere five times in total. For the Ospreys, the end of their European dream for another season, will allow them to concentrate on their challenge for the Guinness PRO12 title, while Treviso can concentrate on the task of finishing above Zebre in the PRO12 and earning qualification for next season's Champions Cup.
