For last season's Top 14 title winners and runners-up to Saracens in the European Rugby Champions Cup, Racing 92, the current European campaign has been nothing other than a total disaster. The French club find themselves at the bottom of Pool 1, without a single point after four successive defeats, and their hopes of qualifying for the quarter-finals long disappeared. On Saturday, Racing will welcome the Leicester Tigers to the Stade Olympique Yves-du-Manoir in Colombes, with the Aviva Premiership club still clinging to faint hopes of somehow escaping the pool.

The Tigers are third in the table at present, five points behind second placed Glasgow Warriors, who they entertain at Welford Road next week, and eight adrift of leaders Munster. Saturday will be the third time that the Tigers and Racing have faced each other in the past 12 months. Racing Metro winning in the semi-final last season, while the Tigers won at home 27-17 in Round 2 of the pool stage this season. Having lost 10 of their last 11 away matches against Top 14 opposition, the exception being victory against Montpellier in 2013/14, the Tigers will hope that they come up against a Racing side that is as disinterested as that that took the field last weekend against Munster, and were beaten 7-32.
