This is the second semi-final of this season’s Premiership Rugby Cup. The winner of this match at the AJ Bell Stadium on Friday night will go on to meet Harlequins in the final on March 15th. Will Sale take their chance against a much-weakened Saracens side?

Great chance for Sale

Sale have been pretty driven in the Premiership Cup this season. They won all four of their pool matches, including a 36-17 away win at Saracens back at the end of September. So it’s all gone swimmingly well for them and now they are heavy favourites to go on and win this rematch against the Sarries.

Last time out in the Premiership, Sale collected an upset-win away at Exeter at Sandy Park. That was some result for them, even though they had to hang on. Sale had been 22-5 up at the break and ended up just holding out for a 22-19 victory in the end. Sale are staying strong with their line up. They are making only three changes for this fixture from that success at Exeter.

Our betting prediction:
Sale -22 Handicap

(odds taken 21:14 GMT, Thursday 6th February)

Their league win over Exeter came after Sale had lost back to back Heineken Cup fixtures against La Rochelle and Glasgow. But they have won three of their last four domestic matches.

So they are in very good shape at the moment and given that their opponents, largely due to international duty, will be sending out an understrength side, this is a glorious chance for the Sale Sharks.


Sarries to bow out of the cup

Saracens lost their last Premiership league game. They were taken down by Harlequins at the end of January. It’s a troubled season for them, knowing that they have been penalised for salary cap breaches with relegation this season.

This match corresponds with the Six Nations as well, so they are not at full strengths. Can their second-string bring them a bit of cheer? It would be a sizable upset if they pulled this off.

They have made a total of 10 changes from the team that they had started with against the Quins. Alex Goode is one player coming in, and he hasn’t played for four months because of injury.

Saracens are still targeting their Heineken Cup title defence, but it looks as if getting their hands on the Premiership Cup may have to wait for another day. Saracens were runners up in last season’s final to Northampton.


Sale Sharks vs Saracens Betting Advice

The whole idea of the Premiership Cup (which replaced the Anglo-Welsh Cup) was to give playing time to younger players. To give them the experience of playing in the big Premiership stadiums. But Sale Sharks are going to throw everything at this one.
