It’s standing room only in the URC with just four points separating second-placed Stormers and eighth-placed Bulls.
Munster lie third in the table on 51 points and require a victory if they are to keep their place in the top four by the end of the weekend.
Cardiff are 14th in the table but have two games in hand on most of the teams above them.
Dai Young’s side were unlucky to lose 40-33 to Saracens in the Challenge Cup knock-outs earlier this month and will be looking to regain the form that saw them beat league leaders Leinster three months ago.
Hear from Defence Coach JP Ferreira and Alex Kendellen ahead of the game.
