The all Italian RaboDirect PRO12 contest at the Stadio XXV Aprile on Sunday, may not appear to be of much importance to anyone other than those directly connected with the two sides. However, the reality is, that the contest between the bottom two sides in the PRO12 table, Zebre and Treviso, is of massive importance, with regard to the composition of next year's European Champions Cup.

Such is the qualification process, that only the Italian side finishing highest in the table is guaranteed qualification, irrespective of what place they actually fill at the end of the regular season. Victory is, therefore, absolutely vital to both teams. Probably even more so to Benetton Treviso, who are without a victory in any tournament this season, although they did pick a up a surprise 24-24 draw against Leinster in Round 8 of the PRO12, and trail their rivals by five points.

The teams have met four times previously, with Zebre managing just one win, which came in the equivalent fixture last season. Their recent results in the PRO12 haven't been much better than Treviso's, with just one win in the last six fixtures, which came in Parma against Edinburgh at the end of November.

Although Zebre are still looking for a second victory of the season, to add to their success against the Cardiff Blues at the Cardiff Arms Park, they will be hopeful that their recent upsurge in form will produce that second Won Saturday, when they face Italian rivals Treviso, in the reverse fixture of the holiday period double header.

Last Saturday saw Treviso sneak home by 20-15, a result which for Zebre provided them with a second successive losing bonus point, following their stirling effort at Ravenhill, Belfast previously, where they ran Ulster close, before going down by 6-13. The victory for Benetton Treviso last weekend, brought to an end an eight game losing streak in all competitions, and should they emerge victorious at the Stadio Aprile XXV, it will be their first back to back wins in the RaboDirect PRO12 since Christmas last year, when they also completed the double against Zebre.

The two sides have clashed three times since Zebre's introduction to the PRO12 last season, with Treviso coming out on top in all three games, though the losers have secured a bonus point on two occasions, and just missed out, going down by eight points on the other occasion.

Saturday, the 22nd of December the RaboDirect Pro12 competition continues when the Zebre rugby team goes up against Benetton Treviso in Parma at 15:00 local time and one hour earlier GMT. Zebre comes in at the very last spot in the RaboDirect Pro12 table. They have played ten games like all of the other teams that are on the table, but they have not been able to take home a single game. In fact, they haven't even been able to take home a draw so they are on the board with a total of four points all from bonuses.
