After winning their first four fixtures in Pool 4, including an away win at Bath and the double over Glasgow Warriors, their two nearest rivals, the four times European Rugby Champions Cup Toulouse appeared to have the qualifying Pool well under their control. However, last week's crushing home defeat by Bath, when they were beaten by 18-35, and conceded a try-scoring bonus point to the Aviva Premiership club, threw the Pool wide open once again, with just this weekend's final qualifying round to be played.

Toulouse travel to the Altrad Stadium on Sunday to play fellow Top 14 side, Montpellier, knowing that they now need to win and equal or better Bath's result against the Warriors, assuming that the English side win at home to the Scottish team. Montpellier's form in Europe this season has been woeful, with five defeats against their name, and just two losing bonus points to their credit. In contrast they are in eighth place in the Top 14 tournament, just one place behind Sunday's visitors.

Toulouse's passage to the knockout stages looks to be anything but straight forward, and defeat will likely see them miss out on a best runner-up spot, as they have just 16 points at this stage, not having managed a single bonus point of any description.
