Leinster Preview – Can Leinster beat familiar foe?

Leinster will meet Stade Toulouse for the 13th time in the European Champions Cup action on Saturday.

Leinster are four-time European champions and they are in their 13th semi-final.

There is a quote of 1/4 odds-on for a Leinster win on Saturday in rugby betting* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on May 12th, 2022 at Betfair).

Last weekend Leinster made a trip to face Premiership side Leicester Tigers.

They comfortably beat the English side 23-14 at Welford Road.

That was a big test of their title credentials which Leinster passed with flying colours.

Leinster had lost United Rugby Championship matches against Sharks and Stormers before that.

So the victory saw them avoid losing three in a row in all competitions

In home fixtures, Leinster are on a seven-match winning streak in all competitions.

That includes thumping European Champions Cup victories over Bath and Montpellier.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at Betfair

* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on May 12th, 2022 at Betfair)


Leinster have won their last two semi-final matches against Toulouse in the Heineken Champions Cup.

The Irish provinces are now up to 21 wins in their last 24 Champions Cup matches (L3).

They have the top try-scorer in this season’s tournament, James Lowe who has tallied eight.

At this stage of the tournament, you expect nothing but tight classes.

A Leinster -10 handicap at 10/11 looks to be a stretch* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on May 12th, 2022 at Betfair).


Stade Toulouse Preview – Reigning champions pose a threat?

Clearly the reigning champions Toulouse are not going to go down without a fight.

They will face an intimidating atmosphere in Dublin on the weekend though.

In the last round of Champions Cup rugby action, Stade Toulouse played out a dramatic 24-24 draw at Munster.

That match went to a shootout, with the French side getting across the line to keep their title hopes alive.

In this season’s competition, they have also won at Ulster.

The win for Toulouse in the match outright for rugby betting is 3/1* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on May 12th, 2022 at Betfair).

So they are clear underdogs in this challenge.

Some poor away form across all competitions backs up their status as underdogs.

The TOP 14 team have lost seven of their last eight on the road in all competitions (W2 D1).
