It’s the first of two Six Nations matches to be shown live on ITV today and comes from the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.
This fixture has traditionally been one to decide the destination of the wooden spoon in recent years, and that could well be the case again this year given both nations’ start to the campaign.
Scotland, though much improved at the World Cup, lost their opener at home to England and failed to score a try once again, while Italy almost defied expectation against France, before falling to a narrow defeat in Paris.
Coverage starts at 1.25pm on ITV and ITV HD with live streaming on ITV Player, where Jill Douglas is joined in the studio by Ian McGeechan, Shane Williams and Maggie Alphonsi.
ITV will also air England v Ireland, which kicks off at 4.50pm
