Racing Metro will look to maintain their unbeaten run in this season's European Rugby Champions Cup, when they host the Italians of Benetton Treviso at the Stade Yves-du-Manoir. Along with fellow Top 14 club Toulouse, Racing are one of only two sides still unbeaten in this season's tournament. Unlike Toulouse however, they do not top their qualifying Pool.

A 19-19 draw at the Liberty Stadium against the Ospreys is the only blip on their record in Pool 5, but with Northampton Saints picking up three bonus points to Racing Metro's none, the Premiership club hold a single point advantage ahead of Sunday's Round 5 fixtures. Treviso have lost all four of the Champions Cup fixtures, and have yet to win a point. Scoring just four tries, while conceding an average of over 40 points per game.

Although the Italian's form has improved in the Guinness PRO12 tournament since Christmas, it will be a major shock if they upset the big spending Parisians. They have just one win to their name in the last 19 Champions Cup matches, and haven't won in France since October 2004. They will certainly be in for a long afternoon if they don't improve their on field discipline. Six yellow cards is the worst record in the tournament alongside Montpellier.
