Scarlets have made a strong start to the season domestically with four wins from their six Guinness Pro14 Conference B matches so far this campaign.

The Welsh side saw off Ospreys 20-17 last time out, following up a thumping 54-14 victory over the conference’s bottom team Southern Kings.

They will be without is centre Kieron Fonotia for the visit of Racing 92, who was banned over a first-half incident in the narrow win over his former club Ospreys which saw him strike George North’s head.

Tom Prydie meanwhile will also miss the match after suffering an injured shoulder in the win over Ospreys with Steff Evans in contention to replace him in the squad.

As always, Leigh Halfpenny will be key for Scarlets success in this season’s competition along with fellow Welsh internationals Ken Owens and Samson Lee. They made the semi-finals last season before falling to eventual winners Leinster.

Racing 92 are bidding to go one better this season after losing to champions Leinster in last season’s Heineken Champions Cup final.

The Sky White and Blues boast a star-studded squad with Ireland international Simon Zebo on the wing and Scotland fly-half Finn Russell expected to play key roles for the clash.

Racing fell to a 19-13 defeat by Lyon at the weekend in what has been a mixed start to the French Top 14 season.
The Parisian outfit have won four and lost three of their seven matches so far and are in seventh place, having won the competition last season.

Scarlets are missing Rhys Patchell for the visit of Racing 92, who took a knock to the head against Ospreys. He will be replaced by Angus O'Brien. 

The club revealed that Patchell had developed "delayed symptoms related to concussion" and in the interest of player welfare had not been considered for Saturday's match.

Jonathan Davies returns at centre while Rob Evans is fit enough for a spot among the replacements after he recovered from a shoulder injury. Steff Evans replaces Prydie at wing. 

Fonotia and back rower Uzair Casseim remain out as they are serving three and two-week bans respectively.

Scarlets coach Wayne Pivac on last season's run to the Heineken Champions Cup semi-finals: “It was a great run to get through after two losses in the first two rounds,” said the 56-year-old New Zealander. 

“The home quarter-final against La Rochelle was very memorable and then, of course, we got through to the semi-final.

“It was disappointing to go out the way we did, but certainly [we were] very pleased to get that far in the competition. So, if we could replicate that and have a better performance, that’s certainly what we’d like to do.”

On Saturday's opponents: “Racing 92 got through to the final last year and they’ve got plenty of class. They are one of the giants of the game and we’ve got them first up at home,” Pivac added. 

“That’s going to be a great test and then we’re off to Welford Road to play Leicester Tigers.

“They are having a bit of a testing time at the moment and we’re not travelling that well ourselves, so for us, it’s a game we really look forward to and if we can pick up some points on the road, that’s going to help our cause to get out of the group.

“Ulster, we know only too well and we’ve already played them once this year. Look, it’s going to be challenging, but [it’s] certainly a pool that if we play well enough, we can get out of it.

“The Heineken Champions Cup is the ultimate as a player, outside of Test rugby, for us in the northern hemisphere.

“So, to do well in this competition, the fans get right behind it. Certainly, down our way in West Wales, to get those games at home, they look forward to them.”

Scarlets– 8/13

Tie – 20/1

Racing 92 - 11/8
