It is another sell-out for the second all-French quarter-final as 32,000 are expected to watch a repeat of last year’s final as Biarritz Olympique and Toulouse meet at the Estadio Anoeta in San Sebastian.

Toulouse’s record in the competition speaks for itself with four Heineken Cup trophies safely locked away and there has only been three occasions in the past 15 years when Toulouse have not reached the knock-out stage of the competition.

The European Champions though will be without captain Thierry Dusautoir for the game however.

In meetings between the two sides it stands at one apiece this season, with them each collecting narrow home victories over each other in the Top 14.

Biarritz will be looking to wipe the memory from last year's final defeat at the Stade de France and for a team that has made it through to the knock-out stages seven times, could this be the year when they finally get their hands on Europe’s greatest rugby trophy?

Champions progress in epic extra time encounter

Heineken Cup holders Toulouse kept their dreams of back-to-back continental crowns alive as they won an epic extra time encounter with Biarritz Olympique in San Sebastian.

The four times Euro kings held their nerve to triumph 27-20 at the Estadio Anoeta, ensuring they remain on course to become the first team since 2001 and 2002 winners Leicester Tigers to secure successive titles.

Guy Noves’ men will now take on Leinster at the Aviva Stadium on April 30 thanks to replacement Yannick Nyanga’s last-gasp try with just a minute of extra-time left to play.

The replacement flanker charged down a Dimitri Yachvili clearance with the scores tied at 20 points apiece after another incredible all-French affair.

Toulouse had seemed to be cruising to a last-four place after first-half tries from Cedric Heymans and Maxime Medard had seen them race into a 17-0 half-time lead.

But Biarritz hit back to level affairs at 17-17 by the end of normal time thanks to the boot of Yachvili and a late, late try from Llikena Bolakoro.

The flying wing touched down with the last play of the game, leaving Yachvili with a touchline conversion to seal a heroic home comeback.

But the France scrum-half pulled his effort narrowly wide of the posts from the left-hand corner allowing the champions to breathe again.

David Skerla and Yachvilli traded penalties in the two extra 10-minute periods but Toulouse’ better try count left Biarritz needed an extra score to progress.

With just moments remaining in the pouring rain, Yachvili saw his hack downfield charged down by Nyanga, who picked up unopposed to score the match-winning try.
