Hundreds of Leicester Tigers fans will make the trip to Treviso for this weekend's Champions Cup clash at Stadio di Monigo.Tigers take on Benetton Treviso in a Pool 4 clash in the 5,000-capacity stadium on Saturday (kick-off 2pm local time).   It is Tigers’ fifth visit to Treviso in Europe’s premier club competition. The most recent trip came in the 2013/14 season when Tigers claimed a hard-fought 34-19 victory.   Tigers fought back from 16-8 down early in the second-half to claim a bonus-point victory thanks in no small part to two second-half Miles Benjamin tries. Tigers go into the game on the back of a bonus-point 33-20 victory over Stade Francais at Welford Road on Friday while Treviso lost 32-7 to Munster Rugby at Thomond Park, where the Irish side claimed their try bonus four minutes from time.   The current weather forecast for kick-off in Treviso is for highs of around 12C with the chance of a light rain shower.   Richard Cockerill names his team for the game at midday on Friday.
