**Round 3 of the 2020/21 Guinness PRO14 season kicks off at the RDS Arena on Friday night as unbeaten Leinster take on winless Zebre in Dublin.** \n\nBoth sides will have their strength in depth tested by international call-ups – their respective home countries go head-to-head in the Guinness Six Nations on Saturday – and Zebre travel to the Irish capital looking for their first ever victory over the reigning champions. \n\n**What’s at stake?** \n\nLeinster are the only side to have taken maximum points from their opening two matches and will see Friday’s contest as an opportunity to keep that run going. \n\nLeo Cullen’s men sit a point clear of Ulster at the top of Conference A and are protecting an unbeaten record that stretches back to April 2019 – their winning run now sits at 21 consecutive matches. \n\nZebre, by contrast, remain without a point after defeats against Welsh duo Cardiff Blues and Dragons in the opening fortnight. \n\nThey showed signs of progress at Dragons last time out and carried an attacking threat but they will have to be clinical this weekend, with chances likely to be at a premium against a notoriously rock-solid defence.
