Zebre vs Scarlets Predictions


This is a fight for who will finish bottom of the URC this season. While there is no relegation, both sides will be eager to take the win in the penultimate round. I am backing Zebre on home soil to get inside four points.

  • Zebre have lost 14 of their last 16 URC matches.
  • Zebre have conceded 40+ points in their last 4 matches.
  • Scarlets have lost 13 of their last 16 URC matches.

Head to Head


Last season the Scarlets beat Zebre 36-12 on home soil.

Zebre Form


Zebre are bottom of the URC table after 16 games with just one win and a draw to their name. They are however just two points off Scarlets.

This is Zebre’s final home game of the season so they will want to end off with a win. If they do manage that there is a good chance they can avoid the wooden spoon.

In recent weeks the Italian outfit has however been shipping points for fun. They conceded 47 against the Sharks 54 against Connacht, 40 against Glasgow and last week lost 40-14 at home to Edinburgh.

Zebre Injuries & Team News


Zebre will put out their strongest available side given that its their last home game and a positive result is quite possible.

Scarlets Form


Scarlets have endured yet another miserable season. They are 14th on the table and could easily still finish bottom if they lose this fixture.

The Welsh club have just three wins to tehri name in 16 games this season. Their last win came towards the end of March when they snatched a three-point success against Benetton.

Since then, Scarlets have been well beaten at home by Glasgow, at Edinburgh and lost 32-27 at home to the Sharks. Last week the Scarlets were again on the losing side on home soil, this time Ulster won 31-20.

Scarlets Injuries & Team News


As Zebre will be desperate for a result, so will the Scarlets. They are unlikely to rest any key players for this game.

Verdict

I am backing Zebre to get within four points and perhaps upset the odds with their second URC win of the season.
