Both Edinburgh and Leinster who meet each other at Murrayfield on Friday Evening have won one and lost one of their two fixtures in this season's Guinness PRO12 tournament. Last weekend's 20-9 success at Murrayfield against the Scarlets brought to an end a run of four straight RaboDirect PRO12 losses for the Scottish side. They now attempt to end a run of six straight defeats to Irish Provinces, since they beat Ulster by 16-10 at Friday's venue last October.

Leinster, who were beaten in last season's Grand Final at Murrayfield Stadium by Connacht haven't won on the road since their visit to Parma in February, when they defeated Zebre. Victory on Friday for the Irishmen, would be just a second win in Scotland since January 2013. That solitary taste of success was against Edinburgh by 36-23 in May 2015. Last weekend, they were beaten at Scotstoun by the Glasgow Warriors 25-33. The head to head record between Edinburgh and Leinster, sees the Irish side hold a lead of 16 wins to the Scots 10 wins. The only time that the Irish Province have been beaten by Friday's opponents in their last five clashes was a 9-16 reverse at Meggetland in September 2015.

Edinburgh are forced to play their first Guinness PRO12 match of the new season away from their tradition Murrayfield home, due to the World Cup warm up requirements of the national team. Instead, Edinburgh will face Leinster at Meggetland. A venue which may create a far better atmosphere for the players, being far more intimate, and having a far smaller capacity than the vast stands of Murrayfield. Friday will be the fourth time that Meggetland will have hosted a RaboDirect PRO12 fixture. The previous three occasions were all in the 2013/14 season, and brought the Scots just a single win, against the Newport Gwent Dragons by 31-25. Despite Leinster's impressive record in the past seven years, when they have won the title twice, and appeared in three other finals, they are notoriously slow starters, and have won in Round 1 on only one occasion during that period. A 42-19 success against the Scarlets from wales in 2013.

Last season, it was Leinster who missed out on the play-offs in a five horse race for the four places, despite winning their final two fixtures, at home to the Italiaans of Treviso, and away to Friday's opponents. A win on Friday will give them three success wins in the PRO12 for the first time since the end of the 2013/14 season.

Edinburgh play host to the Irishmen of Leinster on Saturday at Murrayfield Stadium, where they have suffered just two defeats in their last 12 fixtures in all competitions. By coincidence, both were against Irish Provinces. The Scots require a win on Saturday if they are to have a chance of qualifying for next season's Champions Cup. Realistically they need to better Connacht result against the Ospreys, which will send them into a play-off against Gloucester at Kingsholm, the winners of which would them face the French team finishing fourth in the Top 14, for the 20th and final spot available in Europe's premier club competition next season.

Leinster the reigning Champions, have missed out on the play-offs this season, but their 10-0 win at the RDS against Benetton Treviso in Round 21, ensured their own participation in next season's Champions Cup. If the Irishmen win on Saturday, it will be the first time that they have won back to back RaboDirect PRO12 games since January, although to do so now, would mean only a second away win since they beat Castres in the Champions Cup back in October. The Scots have not scored more than one try in any of their last six games against Saturday's opponents, and have won just one of the last eight games between the sides.

Edinburgh will be wary of a Leinster backlash, when the two sides face off at Murrayfield on Friday evening in the PRO12. Two weeks ago, Leinster looked like the best side in Europe, having completed a masterful 40 point demolition of Northampton Saints at Franklin Gardens in the Heineken Cup. But what a difference a week made, with the Saints traveling to Dublin as massive underdogs for the return fixture, and coming away with an astonishing 18-9 victory, ending Leinster's seven game winning streak. Although the Irish side is in fine form away from their RDS home, with four successive victories on the road, they did lose in Scotland earlier in the season, when they were beaten by Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun 12-6 in September. Their last defeat away from home was at Thomond Park against fellow Irish Province, Munster, who beat them narrowly by 19-15.

Edinburgh's record in recent years against Leinster will give them little cause for optimism, as they have lost the last five fixtures between the two sides, and have won just once in the last eight clashes since 2009, and for that they have to go back to 2010, when they triumphed at Murrayfield by 32-34.
