Glasgow Warriors vs Munster
Competition: Guinness Pro14
Date: 22 September 2017
Kick off: 20:35 CET
A real big Clash in the Pro 14 ,and even more so as these teams are from the same conference with both Munster and Glasgow coming into this encounter with three wins each.
Glasgow were a good pick at the beginning of the season to be a dark horse and a team that would be near the top of the log come the end of the season. They have taken their chances early on and still look like a good bet after three games and three wins. They have taken down a couple teams that are not serious threats, but they have also had to deal with two away games. In their first match they beat Connacht away from home by six points, then took apart the Ospreys easily enough by 21 points at home, and then most recently managed to keep their record going with a narrow one point win against the Blues, in Wales. The Glasgow men have good coaching, a great squad and a solid game plan with a lot of attack, so they will be a threat to a traveling Munster side.
Munster have been even more impressive, despite having the same number of wins, as they have managed to score over 30 points in two of their games, but their opposition has probably been even easier and they have had the luxury of two home games in their first three. The opener was against Italian side Treviso, in Ireland, where they managed to keep them try-less with only three points scored against them in a 31 point win. Then it was the Cheetahs who were really torn apart by the free scoring Munster men as they won by 33 points. Finally, they took on the Ospreys in their first away game and got the win, but in a much tighter affair, winning that one by five points 21-16.

Glasgow Warriors vs Munster: Head to Head Stats
Munster come into this fixture with the historic battle on their side, but it is still a tight one and not much of an advantage seeing as they have won the last six out of 10. However, where it does show is that Munster have won the last four in a row – however, in the last three they have not won by more than three points.
Glasgow Warriors vs Munster: Prediction
Glasgow at home will be a difficult nut to crack, but the Munster side have been building since last season and showed their ability then and up until now. Glasgow have been good to start with but have their flaws and those could be found out here. A hard one to call, but the Munster men could sneak a win here away from home.
