It's down to the wire now for the five contenders who have been shortlisted for the ultimate individual accolade in northern hemisphere rugby, ERC European Player of the Year 2013.
The English side, who last lifted the trophy a decade ago in 2002, need a win to build on their impressive 39-22 victory over Pro12 champions, the Ospreys, in their last outing.
While Toulouse, the four-times champions, are unbeaten and still lead the Pool, the Ospreys and the Tigers are all-square on five points as they enter the back-to-back round of games.
Leicester, who have won the Heineken Cup twice, will be hoping to put some breathing space between themselves and the Ospreys, who face the daunting prospect of a double-header against Toulouse.
Treviso, who have an astonishing 100 percent success rate at goal kicking in this season's tournament, will be aware that history is against them making any inroads at Welford Road.
The Tigers have not been beaten at Welford Road in the Heineken Cup since they lost to Munster back in October 2006. Treviso, despite being in the tournament for 15 years, have never progressed from the Pool stages.
• Treviso have a 100% success rate at goal kicking so far in the Heineken Cup this season.
• Treviso have been shown four yellow cards and conceded 37 penalties, both of which are tournament highs.
• Leicester have forced fewer turnovers than any other team in the competition, averaging two per game so far.
• Leicester are unbeaten at home in the Heineken Cup since losing to Munster back in October 2006.
