Saracens News & Form

It is a troubled season for Saracens, who are staring down the barrel of relegation from the Premiership. Their European title defence hasn’t gotten off to a great start either with a W1 L2 record from three played in Pool 4. They trail second-placed Munster by five points in this one, in what is realistic, a fight for second place. It’s getting to desperation time.

Saracens lost 10-3 away at Munster last weekend and have to find a way to balance the books back on home soil. Only twice before have Saracens lost back to back games in Round 3 and Round 4 of the European Champions League. The most recent occasion was just back in the 2017/18 campaign. They are back and running at full strength, can they deliver at the Allianz Park?

Munster News & Form

It was a strange game a week ago between the two, because the conditions were so poor in the second half of the contest, that it was so difficult for either side to play or do what they wanted. But the narrow win for the Irish province gave them a leg up in the race for qualification from Pool 4 over Saracens. They can close the door on the challenge of the English Premiership side with a victory at the Allianz.

Muster have remained undefeated in their last three away games in the tournament against English Premiership opposition with a W2 D1 record. No side in this season’s pool stage has made more carries than Munster have done and Munster haven’t lost a scrum off their own-put in either (one of four teams). They dug out what they needed to do a week ago. They look very good defensively in the tackle. Can they rock Saracens again?

Saracens vs Munster Prediction

A notable factor of Munster’s game in this season’s Heineken Cup has been their work rate in defence. Their successful tackle percentage was the highest of all teams after three rounds of action. They can stick close to Saracens at the Allianz, but the home win still has to be backed.
