The loss at Kingsholm last Sunday means Andy Friend's side will be looking for a bonus point win that will propel them back into quarter-final contention.
Here's all you need to know.
When’s the game?
Kick-off is at 12.45pm this Saturday 14th December at The Sportsground.
What’s the state of play so far?
Despite a strong start, Connacht will have ground to make up if they're to reach the knockout stages of the Heineken Champions Cup for the first time.
They sit on 4 points after 3 games, with a win at home to Montpellier followed by disappointing defeats away to Toulouse and Gloucester.
A bonus-point win this weekend will go a long way to ensuring Connacht are right back in contention.
How’s our recent record against them?
It's fair to say Gloucester have turned into a bogey team for Connacht in recent years. As well as their win last weekend, Gloucester also come out on top in the the 2014/15 and 2017/18 Challenge Cup quarter-finals as well as their Champions Cup playoff in 2015.
How will the two teams line up?
The Connacht squad for the game will be announced on all our channels and website shortly before midday this Friday.
Are tickets still available?
Yes there are a number of options available for those looking to come to the game. General admission tickets are available in the Bohermore and College Road Ends, while a Clubhouse Hospitality ticket will give you access to the Main Stand. You can also enjoy a Premium Hospitality package which, along with a Clan Stand ticket, includes a pre-match brunch with prosecco and wine.

What if I can’t make the game?
The game will be shown live on BT Sport 2 with radio commentary on Galway Bay FM. As with all our Heineken Champions Cup games it will not be shown on free-to-air TV, so the best way to experience it is at the ground.
