Allianz Park in Barnet sees one of the major heavyweight clashes in this weekend’s round of European Rugby Champions Cup matches, when Saracens from England host Munster from Ireland in a Pool 1 fixture on Saturday afternoon. Pool 1 is currently headed by Clermont Auvergne from France’s Top 14 competition, who have 14 points, including a vital away win at Thomond Park against Munster.

Saracens who beat the French club in last season’s semi-final, and again in the opening round of this season’s tournament, trail their rivals by just a single point, with two qualifiers to go before the knockout stages. Munster fins themselves four points adrift of the Frenchmen, having been beaten both home and away by Clermont in rounds three and four. Munster need to win on Saturday to retain any chance of a quarter final place, while a defeat would see them eliminated with a game to spare.

 The sides have met six times previously, with Munster winning five of those clashes, including a 14-3 victory at Thomond Park back in October. If Sarries can buck that trend on Saturday, they will set up an intriguing final day meeting with Clermont, with the prize for the winners, being top spot in the Pool.
