  • Luke Mc Grath has been carrying an ankle injury since the semi-final win over Saracens

Leinster had been deadlocked with Racing for the whole game, and looked as though they may have been left to rue two missed kicks by Johnny Sexton.

The game is going to be shown live on both Sky Sports Action and BT Sport 2.

"You're never too experienced to practice the fundamentals of the game", Carter tweeted Thursday alongside a photo of him passing a ball in training.

Asked about the influence of Stuart Lancaster, who departed his role as England coach under a cloud after the nation's abysmal 2015 Rugby World Cup campaign, the Ireland star added: "Stuart Lancaster has been brilliant since he has come in".

Racing 92 reached the final two years ago and will be desperate to go one better this time around after losing to Saracens in 2016.

Clock stops as Hamburg suffer first Bundesliga relegation
Hamburg had battled to victory over Moenchengladbach, but were doomed to relegation as Wolfsburg beat Cologne 4-1. Titz reinvigorated the side over his eight games in charge.

"They have played a lot of knockout rugby against a lot of big French sides, so they will be adept at understanding what they have got to deliver and I will be surprised if they don't deliver this time around".

"In my first one I knew the guys around me had been to a final before and lost it, I was thinking some of our aging players might not get another shot and it was that weight of expectation that you wanted them to go out as a European Cup victor".

"We were very close".

"We were pretty clinical [against Scarlets] but I like to think we have another gear in us", said Leinster flanker Dan Leavy.

The Racing back-up took the place of Dan Carter - the victim of a hamstring injury - on the bench just before kick-off.

While doing so, he got furious at Nielsen and blamed her for not introducing enough measures to stop border crossings. Administration officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to provide a candid account of the private meeting.

Pat Lambie then sustained a knee injury in the second minute, so French worldwide Tales, who did not feature on the team list in the morning, had to deputise.

Their last five matches in the Champions Cup have seen them cover this mark and a tiring Racing side could struggle to stay with their opponents after the break.

Penalty goals also coming from Sexton in the first and second halves.

But Sexton responded with a penalty and Iribaren's fourth penalty was cancelled out by Nacewa's boot.
