The Liberty Stadium is the venue for the first Guinness PRO12 Welsh derby of the season on Friday night, when fifth placed Ospreys face Cardiff Blues, in fourth, in front of a bumper crowd.
The Blues arrive in Ospreylia with four wins and one defeat, last weekend against Leinster, targeting a Championship win at the Liberty Stadium for the first time since December 2005, and their first PRO12 victory over the Ospreys in almost six years.
