Pool Stage, Round 2.
Northampton is one of the outsider of the competition, they did an impressive recruitment this summer with venues of George North, Fotuali'i or Alex Corbisiero who are strenghtened a squad already impressive with plenty of english international players or also Pisi's brothers.
They did a nice start in the english Premiership with 3 wins and 1 draw on their 5 matchs. Among them, a nice win on Harlequins's stadium or a nice draw in Leicester where they deserved to win.
For the begininng of the H-Cup last week, they lost in Castres, french top 14 winners of last year, but with the defensive bonus point, so this isn't bad start. Now we can expect them to launch their competition with this first match at home where they are probably targetting a win with the offensive bonus.
On the opposite side, the Ospreys just lost 2 matchs in-a-row at home, knowing that they didn't lose at home since one year ! Those 2 losses have probably let some physical and psychological marks, because the first one was a loss against Ulster in Pro12 where they were leading 12-0 at the 50th minute while the second one, more important, was a loss last week against Leinster for the beginning of the H-Cup, and with this loss, it will be already very complicated for the Ospreys to qualify for quarter-finals.
So, I think that Northampton will win this match, and I think that they will win by more than 8 points, by trying to take the offensive bonus which would be very precious in this strong pool.
