Glasgow Warriors will look to end a run of three matches without victory against two-time Champions Cup winners Saracens when they meet on Sunday afternoon at Scotstoun Stadium, live on BT Sport and beIN SPORTS from 15:15 BST.
- The Gallagher Premiership side have come out on top in all three of their previous meetings in Europe’s elite club competition.
- Glasgow did beat Saracens back in 2004 in the Challenge Cup. That win is their sole victory over the Gallagher Premiership champions in eight attempts.
- The Scottish side have won eight of their last nine matches against Premiership Rugby opposition. The sole defeat came against Northampton Saints in 2015.
- Saracens recorded the best line-out success rate last season, completing 79 of 85 throws (93%).
- Owen Farrell led the competition in points scored last season with 92 and only Ronan O’Gara (1,365) and Stephen Jones (869) have more points than the Saracens fly-half (688).

Mike Rhodes scored the sole Saracens try as the two-time Champions Cup winners defeated Glasgow Warriors 13-3 at Scotstoun Stadium.
The Scottish side dominated the first 10 minutes at Scotstoun but found themselves behind when a Saracens line-out on halfway gave them a platform to make ground and they created the overlap on the left wing, finding Mike Rhodes who sauntered over the try line. Former EPCR European Player of the Year, Owen Farrell, made no mistake with the conversion.
Glasgow Warriors were punished minutes later for straying offside and that allowed Farrell to step up and pop the ball through the posts, stunning the vociferous home crowd.
Saracens were then the team caught offside, giving Adam Hastings the chance to reduce the Glasgow deficit and he made no mistake from in front of the sticks.

The Scottish side were penned in their own 22 when they won a scrum before the interval but the call was overturned after foul play from Fraser Brown. That gave Farrell the simple task of slotting between the posts to make it 13-3 at half time.
The Scottish region had several chances in the second half to put points on the board but opted for the corner on each occasion as they failed to puncture the excellent Saracens line, meaning the second half finished scoreless.
