Scarlets are currently in second place in the table, having won seven and lost just once this season.

Treviso may find it more difficult to cope with the absence of their international stars, away on international duty in the 6-nations championship, more than the Scarlets from wales, who appear to have a greater strength in depth to their squad, than their hosts. However, the Italians have a proud record at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo in this season's RaboDirect PRO12 competition, suffering just one defeat there, since round one, when they fell to a single point defeat to Leinster 20-21 at the end of November. However, in four matches against Welsh opposition this season, Treviso are yet to taste victory, and although the Scarlets have lost their last four matches in the PRO12, you have to go right back to 2008 to find the last occasion that they lost five consecutive games in this competition.

The Italians hold a slight historic upper hand over the Welsh Region in the PRO12. Winning four of the seven games that the two sides have contested, to the Scarlets three successes, and never have they triumphed in the PRO12 at Benetton Treviso, their sole success there, coming in December 2010, in the Heineken Cup. A trophy from which they have both already been eliminated this season, before the knockout stages were reached.
