France host Italy in Six Nations 2018 this evening (Fri).
The match – which takes place at Orange Velodrome in Marseille – will be shown live on the BBC.
This will be only the 12th time that Les Bleus have played a home match at this stadium, and the first time it plays host to a Six Nations contest, and they will hope to continue their good record at this site having won on nine occasions and lost only twice.
The Italians, meanwhile, will hope a change in venue brings a change of fortune, having not recorded a victory over the French since 2013, which was one of only two triumphs since the turn of the century.
Coverage starts at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD. Kick-off 8.00pm
ITV will broadcast Ireland v Wales from 1.30pm, while the BBC airs England’s visit to Scotland from 4.00pm on Saturday afternoon.
