Racing 92 News & Form

The 2018 runners up Racing 92 are on the brink of a place in the quarter-finals of this season’s European Champions Cup. A win over Munster on the weekend will do that. It will guarantee that they go through as group winners as well. They are a formidable side are the French unit as they have suffered just one defeat in their last 13 pool stage games (W11 D1). The one defeat in that sequence did happen against Irish opposition, Ulster in last season’s competition. No team in the pool stage this season have made more metres in combined games than Racing 92 have done.

Munster News & Form

Munster were beaten in the last round away at Saracens. That was after they had battled their way to a home success over the reigning champions in Round 3. In their one other game in the Pool stage this season, Munster collected a bonus point victory over Ospreys. There may be a reason to back them to snap back from their last game at Sarries. Munster have not lost consecutive matches in the Heineken Cup since 2015/16. They do boast the best tackle success rate in this season’s tournament at 90%. A win would really blow the race for top spot wide open.

Racing 92 vs Munster Prediction

Muster are very good in defence and keep the game tight. The home win should still crop up because Racing 92 have been prolific with first-half tries and if they get ahead, then it’s going to be a long way back for the visitors. Home win.
