Leicester Tigers from the Aviva Premiership go head to head with the Scarlets of the Guinness PRO12 in Round 5 of the Champions Cup on Friday Evening, in a game which will see the losers eliminated from this season’s tournament, with the winners retaining an outside hope of catching table toppers Toulon.

Friday’s protagonists have almost identical records in Pool 3, with two wins and two defeats, as well as five tries scored, and eight conceded, in the course of the first four rounds of competition. Their wins have come at home, while the defeats have been on the road. Reigning European Rugby Champions Cup, Toulon, currently hold a five point advantage over the Leicester Tigers and the Scarlets, and with a home match against the mis-firing Irish Province Ulster, on Saturday, the Pool winner may well be settled by full time at the Stade Félix Mayol on Saturday.

When the sides met at the Parc y Scarlets in Round 2, back in late October, the Welsh Region were victors in an attritional contest by 15-3. However, the head to head record between the teams sees a clear advantage to the Tigers, who have won six of the eight games between the two over the years.
