**Edinburgh head to Zebre looking to bounce back quickly from their narrow derby defeat to Glasgow Warriors last weekend.** \n\nThe men from the Scottish capital were on the receiving end of a 23-22 scoreline at Scotstoun, having beaten their rivals a fortnight earlier, dealing a setback to their hopes of breaking into Conference B’s Heineken Champions Cup positions. \n\nZebre go into the game on the back of consecutive victories over Italian rivals Benetton but they have won only one other Guinness PRO14 match so far this season – at home to the Ospreys on November 2. \n\nBoth sides will be targeting a key victory in their bid to claw back some ground on the top four in their conference. \n\n**Tale of the tape** \n\nEdinburgh - fifth in Conference B but with two games in hand over fourth-placed Cardiff Blues - have endured troubled travels to Italy in recent times, losing on their last three visits to the country. \n\nIndeed, they have won only twice outside Scotland in the PRO14 since November 2019 – both against the Scarlets.
