THE PREDICTION

Harlequins’ last seven matches have all seen the home team win, so with 3,500 fans allowed to attend this match as part of the pilot scheme to get fans back into stadia, that should boost their home advantage here. They come off a good win over Northampton Saints last time out and while they make some changes to their team, they will still be confident on home territory. Bath suffered defeat to Wasps last time out which could prove costly in the race for the top four spots. They had won their three matches prior to that however and they know they have little margin for error here. While Harlequins are no pushovers at home, Bath may just grab the points in what should be a close game.
