The Tigers travel to Italy expecting a far from easy ride given that they were just two minutes away from defeat when they visited the Stadio di Monigo last season and Youngs knows the hard work will have to be done at the coalface if they are to hang on to Ulster's coat tails in Pool 5.
"Definitely, hugely," was Youngs' enthusiastic response when asked if he was up for the challenge this weekend. "That's one thing we all look forward to as a pack, going up against the best packs around. Bath at the weekend was one of those occasions and that's always something we enjoy doing.
"There's no danger of us taking Treviso lightly at all. We'll be prepared for a big forward battle. They've got some big guys who carry the ball extremely well so it's going to be a tough test with plenty of big hits going in.
"We only just won there last year when the pitch was soaking wet and pretty much waterlogged so we're hoping to have some better weather this time.
"We have looked at a few errors we made in last week's draw with Bath and have tried to address them for the weekend but the intensity that we brought to that last 20 minutes was just phenomenal. That's something we have to show from the start against Treviso."
A lifelong Tigers fan and a product of the club's academy, Youngs is all too aware of Leicester's love affair with Europe's top tournament.
His memories of previous triumphs in 2001 and 2002 and of one-off wins against some of the continent's biggest names show no signs of fading and he is now set on creating even more of those moments having experienced a huge Heineken Cup high already this season.
The British & Irish Lions Test star was a try scorer in Leicester's last-gasp win at Montpellier in Round 5, a result that ranks right up there with the many memorable occasions in his career to date.
"The Heineken Cup is massive…the biggest games and the best games have always been the Heineken Cup games. You look through the history of Tigers and some of the best games ever played have been games of Heineken Cup rugby," added Youngs.
"There was one game when Leicester brought Leinster to Welford Road and won that in 2002; another good one was when we beat Munster away in 2007 when I was coming through the academy, that was massive. I wasn't there but I watched it on TV when I was part of the first team. Those sorts of games are huge and they stick in your memory.
"That's something I've experienced as well. That win over Montpellier in France last month was one of the best wins I've ever had, and that includes winning the Aviva Premiership and experiences like that.
"When you come to the Heineken Cup things get exciting because it's such a big tournament. We've got such a great opportunity to go to Treviso and get a win there and then bring Ulster to Welford Road looking for a home quarter-final, which would be massive. These are two huge games for us."
