· Toulon have won 22 of their 23 home games in the Champions Cup, losing only to holders Saracens in Round 1 last season.
· Toulon have averaged 155 carries per game this season, more than any other side. Benetton rank fourth in this category however (138).
· Benetton have missed an average of 14 tackles per game – the poorest rate in the competition.

RC Toulon set up a mouth-watering Pool 5 finale against Scarlets as they picked up what could be a crucial bonus point against Benetton Rugby.
- Knowing the potential importance of a bonus point, the Felix Mayol crowd were anxious at half time after Toulon had only built a 10-0 lead courtesy of a try, conversion and penalty by fly-half Anthony Belleau.
- However, once Fijian powerhouse Josua Tuisova had rampaged past Edoardo Gori and Luca Sperandio to score just after the resumption, Benetton's stout resistance was broken.
- Captain Mathieu Bastareaud led a driving maul which saw him bundle over for Toulon's third. The bonus-clinching fourth arrived when Semi Radrada's lovely floated pass enabled Tuisova to thunder through for his second.
- Hugo Bonneval added a fifth, stretching over after Bastareaud managed a skilful offload despite being sandwiched between two Italian tacklers.
- The qualification scenario for next weekend is that the winner of Scarlets v Toulon goes through as Pool winners.
- If Toulon are defeated in that game but get a losing bonus point and Bath earn five points against Benetton, they will finish level on 18 points. Obviously, if Bath only earn four points in Italy and Toulon lose in west Wales with no bonus point, they will be level on 17. In both those scenarios, Toulon will finish second as they have the better head-to-head record.
