After being defated in Edinburgh last Friday, Aironi return home for the last two matches of the season against Leinster and Ospreys.

The Aironi coaching staff have made seven changes to the starting line-up. Horacio San Martin replaces Giulio Rubini after he injured his left knee at Murrayfield. Robertson and Demas play on the wings. Gabriel Pizarro will play at centre with Gilberto Pavan. At scrum half Tito Tebaldi returns alongside James Marshall.

In the back row Josh Sole returns at blindside flanker after his one week suspension and completes the line with Gareth Krause and Nick Williams. Young lock Joshua Furno replaces Quintin Geldenhuys, with Marco Bortolami skippering the side. Fabio Staibano and Alberto De Marchi replace Gambo and Perugini in the front row, with Fabio Ongaro as hooker.
