Having finally managed to claim a first win of the season in any tournament just two weeks ago, against the Cardiff Blues in the RaboDirect PRO12, the Italians of Benetton Treviso made it two on the trot, when they squeezed past the Newport Gwent Dragons last weekend by 19-17. When the Italian outfit entertain Munster at the Stadio Monigo on Sunday, they will be chasing a third consecutive victory for the first time since October 2011.

However, if Treviso want to extend their winning run, they will need to register a first win against an Irish Province since October 2013, when Connacht were the visitors in a PRO12 fixture to the Stadio Monigo. Munster are in an unusually low eighth position in the PRO12 table, following successive defeats to the Ospreys and the Glasgow Warriors. They will be bidding to avoid a third successive regular season loss for the first time since April 2013.

The last time that Munster were beaten by an Italian side was back in September 2013, when they lost 19-29 in Treviso, ten matches ago. One of three defeats that they have suffered at Sunday's venue. They have however, also claimed five victories there. The two sides were drawn in the same European Cup Pool, with Munster winning both encounters, to go with a home win against the Italians at home in the PRO12.

Two opening day losers in the Guinness PRO12 tournament meet on Friday at the Stadio Monigo in Treviso when Benetton host Munster from Ireland. While Benetton Treviso defeat at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea against the Ospreys was perhaps no surprise, although the margin of the defeat, 44-13 will have been disappointing, Munster loss at their Thomond Park fortress to Edinburgh from Scotland was perhaps the shock result of Round 1.

Last week's loss in Swansea was the fourth straight RaboDirect PRO12 defeat for the Italians, who last tasted success when they beat Newport Gwent Dragons 45-27 at home in April. Although they have a poor recent record against the Irish Provinces, not having beaten one since Connacht were the visitors to Stadio Monigo in round 5 last season, they have emerged successful in three of their last six clashes with Munster. For a team that has had so much success over the years, it is surprising to note, that the only time the Munster men have won a PRO12 match at Stadio Monigo was back in February 2012.

If the Italians win on Friday, it will be the first time that Munster has opened a PRO12 season with successive losses since 2004-05.
