Leicester Tigers Preview – Tigers can close out the deal

Current Premiership leaders Leicester Tigers have full control of this European tie.

It’s a huge 19-point advantage after a comfortable success in France.

Leicester Tigers are a quote of 1/25 in the match outright* (odds recorded 19:42 GMT on April 14th, 2022 at William Hill).

The Tigers have won every single match played on home turf this season across all competitions.

That includes a Pool stage success over Connacht in mid-December.

In each of their last five home matches, Leicester have scored at least 35 points.

So they clearly have the scoring threat in them.

Our betting prediction:
Leicester 11-15 winning margin

* (odds recorded 19:42 GMT on April 14th, 2022 at William Hill)


Leicester Tigers have hosted TOP 14 side, Clermont, three times before in the Heineken Cup.

The Premiership side won each of those fixtures.

It’s also a three-match winning streak that Leicester are on at home in the knockout stage of this competition.

A Leicester -17 handicap is the line at 10/11 in rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:42 GMT on April 14th, 2022 at William Hill).

The Tigers have scored exactly 29 points in each of their last three matches in the competition.


Clermont Preview – Visitors chasing a lost cause?

Clermont are probably going to have trouble getting themselves back into this tie.

With home advantage gone, chasing a 20-point winning margin, it’s going to be a tough afternoon for them at Welford Road.

That is fully reflected in the match outright.

Clermont are the 9/1 underdogs in Heineken Cup rugby betting* (odds recorded 19:42 GMT on April 14th, 2022 at William Hill).

Home and away in all competitions, Clermont have lost six of their last ten matches.

So there hasn’t been a great deal of recent form from them.

In their one road game so far in this season’s competition, Clermont lost 31-34 at Ulster.

Clermont’s overall away form this season is pretty dreadful.

After losing three European away games in a row beyond the pool stage, Clermont have won their last two in the knockout stage.
