Toulon Preview – Can French side defined home turf?

What a cracking match we have in the semi-final for the European Challenge Cup on Saturday.

Toulon have won their last four matches in all competitions.

Last weekend Toulon battled with a Premiership Rugby side at home.

The TOP 14 side came out on top by a single-point margin against London Irish.

In the match outright for Saturday’s rugby betting, Toulon are 11/5 underdogs* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on May 12th, 2022 at Bet365)

Toulon topped Pool A in this season’s Challenge Cup.

Since losing to fellow French side Biarritz in the pool stage, they have claimed back to back home victories in the competition.

This is the toughest challenge of this campaign for them without question as they meet Sarries.

The head to head between Toulon and Saracens is three wins each.

Our betting prediction:
Saracens 1-7 winning margin

Toulon are in their fourth semi-final of the Challenge Cup and hold a 100% success record from the previous three.

The most recent of those saw them beat Leicester Tigers in the 2019/20 in the final four.

They have yet to actually lift the Challenge Cup, however.

Toulon last lost a home fixture in the Challenge Cup back in 2009 and have posted 17 straight victories since.

That run incidentally started with a victory against Saracens.


Saracens Preview – Premiership side can prevail

Despite their rich history of success, Saracens have never landed the Challenge Cup.

Three times before they have been at this stage and have lost on each occasion.

This is the first time that Saracens have been to the final four of the tournaments since the 2008/09 season.

Saracens qualified 3rd in Pool C to make it through to the knockout stage.

They were highly impressive in their quarter-final match last weekend.

Sarries made a road trip to Gloucester and smashed the Cherry & Whites 44-17 at Kingsholm.

In the match outright for rugby betting, Saracens are 4/11 for the win* (odds recorded 20:05 GMT on May 12th, 2022 at Bet365).

With some big winning momentum behind them, can Saracens prevail in France on the weekend?
