THE PREDICTION

This should be a well-contested match if the last fixture between Gloucester and Leicester Tigers was anything to go by. Leicester lost the reverse match despite scoring 30 points of their own back in August but neither team was in any real shape after the re-start of last season and both will be desperate for a good start here. With home advantage limited right now due to the lack of spectators we may not see the tables turn in this rematch and Gloucester look the likelier winners of the two. Alternatively, both teams should be able to contribute to a scoreline that goes over 40 points
