Munster captain Peter O'Mahony has warned his side that they can take nothing for granted in the Heineken Cup and will pay a big price if they take their eye off the ball against Ospreys.

The Reds are expected to win in Swansea tomorrow against an Ospreys side who have lost five of their opening six games in the PRO14 and who may be without several of their Welsh contingent.

"You go back through our encounters of the years, they have always been hugely contested and hugely physical. It's a different animal in Europe. It's just a different competition and it brings out the best in teams," said O'Mahony.

"As soon as you let the ball drop in one of these games, you are under huge pressure, huge pressure. I think is not going to be any different this week. No matter who the other team picks, it's going to be huge physical encounter.

"It's difficult to win away from home in this competition."
