Llanelli look to be the best-placed club to surge into the quarter finals and a win against French giants Perpignan would provide a huge boost to the side currently top of the Welsh-Scottish league.
A win in France would blow the group wide open and set up a winner-takes-all showdown against Leicester next week at Stradey Park.

Scott Quinnell will start the game from the bench having been ruled out for the last month with a knee injury, but is expected to play a part in the game.
Coach Gareth Jenkins said: "This is a big game for us and we know we have to win if we are to progress in the tournament.
"The secret to playing on French soil is not to try and play a running game because there is noone better than the French at that. What you have to do is try and silence the crowd which in turn will affect the team's temperament."
Meanwhile, Cardiff will be bidding to keep their Heineken Cup dreams alive with a morale boosting win over Montferrand at the Arms Park.

Newport will be hoping to keep alive their slim chances of clinching qualification when they lock horns with another French giant Toulouse.

Swansea, who face Bath at St Helen's tomorrow, have delayed naming their side because of injury problems.
