Treviso will look to add another scalp to their collection when they face Glasgow Warriors at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo on Saturday.

Treviso have already accounted for the Ospreys and the Scarlets at home, while Leinster escaped with a 19-18 win.

Treviso have made several changes to their side following the 33-21 loss to Toulouse in the Heineken Cup.

Ignacio Fernandez-Rouyet, Corniel Van Zyl, Franco Sbaraglini and Pedro Di Santo start in the forwards, with Manoa Vosawai moving to No 8. In the backs Christian Loamanu replaces Giulio Toniolatti on the right wing.

The Warriors will head to Italy bidding to make it five domestic wins on the bounce - although they lost back-to-back games in the Heineken Cup.

As a result head coach Gregor Townsend has made five changes of personnel to his line-up following the loss to Ulster.

Tommy Seymour returns from suspension and joins Niko Matawalu in a rejigged back division - with Stuart Hogg moving to outside centre, Alex Dunbar starting in the No 12 jersey and Peter Murchie reverting to full-back.

In the pack hooker Finlay Gillies, blindside Rob Harley and openside John Barclay are handed starts.

Treviso: 15 Luke McLean, 14 Christian Loamanu, 13 Tommaso Benvenuti, 12 Alberto Sgarbi, 11 Tommaso Iannone, 10 Kristopher Burton, 9 Tobias Botes, 8 Manoa Vosawai, 7 Alessandro Zanni, 6 Simone Favaro, 5 Corniel Van Zyl (c), 4 Francesco Minto, 3 Pedro Di Santo, 2 Franco Sbaraglini, 1 Ignacio Fernandez-Rouyet.
Replacements: 16 Leonardo Ghiraldini, 17 Michele Rizzo, 18 Lorenzo Cittadini, 19 Antonio Pavanello, 20 Valerio Bernabo, 21 Marco Filippucci, 22 Fabio Semenzato, 23 Brendan Williams.

Glasgow: 15 Peter Murchie, 14 Tommy Seymour, 13 Stuart Hogg, 12 Alex Dunbar, 11 Niko Matawalu, 10 Ruaridh Jackson, 9 Henry Pyrgos, 8 Ryan Wilson, 7 John Barclay, 6 Rob Harley, 5 Al Kellock (capt), 4 Tom Ryder, 3 Mike Cusack, 2 Finlay Gillies, 1 Ryan Grant
Replacements: 16 Dougie Hall, 17 Ofa Fainga'anuku, 18 Gordon Reid, 19 Tim Swinson, 20 James Eddie, 21 Scott Wight, 22 Troy Nathan, 23 Taylor Paris

What they said...

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend

"This weekend's game against Benetton Treviso is massive for us. We've achieved some good results of late in the RaboDirect PRO12, and after two defeats in the Heineken Cup, it's vital we get back on track.

"We're well aware that it's going to be an extremely tough game. Treviso have already beaten Ospreys and Scarlets at home, and only lost to Leinster by a point there.

"That underlines just how well we're going to have to play in all aspects of our game to come away with another win. As usual with matches against Italian opposition, we'll need to be watertight in our work up front; our scrum has been going really well in recent games, and establishing the right sort of platform in the set-piece is a necessity."
