Edinburgh vs Glasgow Warriors by Serialtips
This is the usual scottish derby during the boxing day.
Glasgow needs to win this match in order to come back in the top 4 which qualify for the semi-finals.
They have a big advantage on this match, they are fresh physically. Indeed Glasgow didn't play last week-end, their match against Treviso was postponed.
Headcoach Greg Townsend named a strong team with an impressive bench, almost the best team possible of the moment except Matawalu and of course the injured players, especially on centre.
On the opposite side, Edinburgh is in good shape at the moment, but they played only 5 days ago a physical game against Leinster on very bad conditions, and this match could have let some marks physically, knowing that this is almost the same teah which will play this derby.
Moreover, there are many injuries on the backs since one month, then the staff is forced to put often the same guys on the starting team, some players are going to play their 6th match in-a-row !
Also, Glasgow is now used to win this derby, they have a clear advantage the last couple of years, besides Edinburgh didn't win the derby on the boxing day since 4 years.
So, I think that Glasgow will win this scottish clash.
