Bath are hoping that history can repeat itself after setting a blistering pace in the race for this season's Heineken Cup quarter-finals.
Steve Borthwick's men visit Glasgow tonight, holding a clear lead at the Pool Five summit after amassing 14 points from three games.
The last time Bath won their opening three Heineken Cup matches, in 1997-98, they went on to be crowned European champions.
Victory over Glasgow, allied with Bourgoin beating Leinster in France tomorrow, would leave Bath requiring just one more win for a place in the knockout stages.
Acting Bath coach Michael Foley is taking nothing for granted, though, after Glasgow scared the living daylights out of his team last weekend before wing Salesi Finau's late try secured a 31-26 home triumph.
"Glasgow will be confident," said Foley. "They are really well coached, they know their strengths and I like them as a side.
"The first match was entertaining as a spectacle and I expect both sides to be better on Friday. I am sure it will be a great game of rugby.
"We moved the ball around a lot better last weekend, but we were our own worst enemy at times. We gave them opportunities and they took them and we missed some routine shots at goal."
England lock Danny Grew-cock, who was rested last Saturday, returns to the starting line-up, while former Newcastle wing Michael Stephenson features at full-back instead of Matt Perry and England front-row forwards Lee Mears and Matt Stevens are on replacement duty.
Ex-All Blacks prop Kees Meeuws accepts it will be "a tough ask" for his Castres team to sink Pool One leaders Sale Sharks at Edgeley Park tonight.
Sale's 20-16 victory in Castres last Friday strengthened their quarter-final chances and the Guinness Premier-ship top dogs will undoubtedly target a winning bonus point against a French outfit whose previous away Heineken Cup trip this term saw them crash 42-16 to Munster.
Castres coach Laurent Seinge has also made eight changes for the Stockport trip, with Meeuws not included and his fellow New Zealand prop, Carl Hoeft, among the replacements.
"It's obviously going to be a tough ask for us to win at Sale, but if we keep it together and have confidence, we should be able to win," said Meeuws.
"We played the right game-plan in the home leg and there are just a few areas we have to tighten up on and that should see us through."
Edinburgh coach Todd Blackadder has retained the side beaten 20-13 by tournament favourites and Pool Six leaders Toulouse at Murray-field last weekend for tonight's return in southern France.
Blackadder is optimistic Edinburgh can give a strong account of themselves as they look to keep themselves in quarter-final contention. Their chances are boosted by Toulouse half-backs Frederic Michalak and Jean-Baptiste Elissalde both battling injuries.
"I feel this is a team that can go to Toulouse and win," he said. "There were positives to come out of the game last weekend - our defence was very good and we were strong in attack. It is frustrating because we have a team that is capable of beating the top sides in Europe."
In the second-tier European Challenge Cup, Pool One leaders Northampton face a tricky assignment away to Narbonne with their cause hindered by injuries that have sidelined fly-half Carlos Spencer (hand), wing Sean Lamont (ankle) and centre Rhodri Davies (groin).
