Saturday, kick-off 14:00 Stadio Artemio FranchiTwo teams in wretched runs of poor form will meet in Florence on Saturday. Italy and the visiting South Africa have just a win apiece between them from their last six fixtures, with the Springboks only managing a draw against the Barbarians a fortnight ago. After heavy defeats by New Zealand and England respectively, both teams will be desperate for a win to reset their autumn campaigns. Lovers of beautiful rugby might want to look away though -- its unlikely to be anything other than a blood and thunder Test match.Team newsHead coach Conor OShea has made four changes from the side that lost 68-10 to the All Blacks last weekend. Giovanbattista Venditti starts on the left wing while Sami Panico and Omel Gega will line up in the front row. Francesco Minto comes in alongside evergreen captain Sergio Parisse in the back-row.OSheas counterpart Allister Coetzee has restored Bryan Habana to the wing in one of two changes to the Springboks unit in Florence. The record try-scorer comes into the starting XV along with Nizaam Carr, who makes his first start in the famous green jersey in place of the concussed Eben Etzebeth.Italy: Padovani, Bisegni, Benvenuti, McLean, Venditti, Canna, Bronzini; Panico, Gega, Cittadini, Fuser, Van Schalkwyk, Minto, Favaro, Parisse (c). Replacements: DApice, Quaglio, Ferrari, Fabio Biagi, Steyn, Gori, Allan, Boni.South Africa: Le Roux, Combrinck, Venter, De Allende, Habana, Lambie, Paige; Mtawarira, Strauss (c), Koch, Du Toit, de Jager, Carr, Alberts, Whiteley. Replacements: Mbonambi, Kitshoff, Nyakane, Mostert, Mohoje, De Klerk, Jantjies, GoosenKey head-to-headThere is rarely a more important head-to-head battle than Italys talisman Sergio Parisse against whoever is lining up at No. 8 opposite him. On Saturday that man will be Warren Whiteley, the South African giant who took a beating from Englands Billy Vunipola a week ago. Whiteley will be out to stamp his authority on a game for a change and should benefit if the game loosens up in the second half. While Parisse isnt the same wrecking ball player as Vunipola, hell be as full of running as the England unit. His hands on the ball will be key to Italy keeping the scoreboard moving.Key stats*South Africa have won all 12 of their Test matches against Italy.*However, both are in need of a win after only one victory in each of their last six matches. Saturday could easily be described as the most important Test for each side this November.WeatherWho knows what will happen with the weather on Saturday? The forecast predicts sunshine and heavy showers, which could make for treacherous rugby conditions at Stadio Artemio Franchi. Handling in the wet could be tricky for two sides struggling with their attacking games. Temperatures should hit around 16 degrees celsius.PredictionSouth Africa have the form in this fixture, undefeated in a dozen Tests against the Azzurri. However, Coetzees men have been in abysmal form and should have suffered a heavier defeat against England last weekend. Italy were never likely to run New Zealand close a week ago but could push the Springboks deeper into the match. Expect the visitors to win, but it wont be a cricket score. South Africa by 15.
