The Italians of Zebre are the only winless side in the RaboDirect PRO12 tournament at the end of Round 5 in this season's competition. On Saturday, they will face the Glasgow Warriors at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi in Parma, a side that they have never beaten in eight attempts in the PRO12. It is over three years since they even managed to secure a losing bonus point against this weekend's visitors. The Italians have not tasted success since they beat the visiting Newport Gwent Dragons by 47-22 in Round 22 last season. Their only win against Scottish opposition in the last seven fixtures, came when they defeated Edinburgh in Parma by 19-11 a year ago.

The Warriors after back to back losses against the Blues and Ulster, recorded a third win of the season last weekend, when they beat the Dragons 26-17 at Rodney Parade. The last time that the Warriors were defeated by Italian opponents was back in September 2011, when they lost to Treviso at Firhill. Since then, they have won an astonishing 19 successive matches against sides from Italy. Saturday will be just a second home game of the season for Zebre, after their match in Round 3 against Connacht was abandoned due to a tremendous lightning storm.

The one outstanding match in the Guinness PRO12 tournament, will take place in Parma on Friday at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi, with Zebre entertaining the reigning Champions, the Glasgow Warriors. The fixture was forced to be re--arranged from its original date, to allow the European competitions to conclude the pool phases. Despite not having recorded a win in any competition since they travelled to Sixways in the Challenge Cup and defeated the Worcester Warriors back in January, and not having won in the PRO12 since January 3rd against their fellow countrymen Treviso, Zebre are still hanging on to the Champions Cup spot for next season, that is reserved for an Italian team.

The Warriors have lost just one of their last eight RaboDirect PRO12 fixtures, and won the last six in the competition. The one loss during their run of success coming in Belfast against Ulster on February 12th. Last weekend's victory for the Champions in Italy against Treviso, saw the rise to fourth into the table, and a further win on Friday will push them up to third, and open up a five or six point gap between themselves and the side in fifth, Ulster. Glasgow have won all six previous meetings between themselves and Zebre, and registered a bonus point in four of those fixtures.

Zebre play their first game in the renamed Stadio Lanfranchi on Sunday, when the team currently at the foot of the RaboDirect PRO12 table, play host to second place Glasgow Warriors. The Italians haven’t won at home in the PRO12 tournament since they beat another Scottish side, Edinburgh, at the end of November, and their only win in the last eight games in all competitions was by 23-13 at home to French Top 14 club Brive, in a “dead rubber” Challenge Cup match on 17th January. Although the Warriors are second in the table, just a point adrift of leaders the Ospreys, they are on a run of four successive away defeats in all competitions, their last win on the road coming in France against Montpellier in the Champions Cup on 25th October.

The Warriors have a 100% success rate against the Italian side, having won all four games that the teams have contested. The only three defeats that they have suffered at the hands of Italian teams in the past 24 fixtures, have all been to Benetton Treviso, although the last occasion was back in September 2011. While the Scots are desperate for the points at the top of the table, Zebre need them in their efforts to finish above Treviso and take the solitary place available to Italian Sides in next season’s Champions Cup.
