Ospreys will bid to create a piece of club history on Saturday when they host Racing 92 in Pool A of the Heineken Champions Cup.
The teams have met four times in the competition so far and the Welsh region have yet to record a victory, with the TOP 14 side winning one and the other meeting being drawn.
To underline the tough nature of Ospreys’ task, Racing have scored exactly 40 points in each of their last two games against them.
The match kicks off at the Swansea.com Stadium at 3.15pm local time, and is available to watch on BT Sport, beIN Sports and FR2.
Other key facts:
- Racing have won their last three Heineken Champions Cup games in Wales after failing to win any of their first three trips there (D2 L1).
- Ospreys have lost their last four home games in the Heineken Champions Cup after never previously losing more than two in a row in the competition.
- The Welsh region have lost their last two games in which they have hosted TOP 14 opposition after being unbeaten in the previous 14 such fixtures (W12 D2).
- Ospreys enjoyed 64% possession in their last game in the Heineken Champions Cup (v Sale Sharks, Round 1), the highest tally by any team in a match so far this season.
- Racing 92’s Finn Russell has assisted three tries in the Heineken Champions Cup this season, the joint most of any player alongside Connacht’s Jack Carty.
- The Scottish fly-half has also made three passes that directly led to a line break, also a joint high in the competition in 2021/22 (level with Cardiff’s Dan Fish).
Match Centre - Preview - Lineups
Racing 92 are through to the last 16 of the Heineken Champions Cup after beating Ospreys 10-25 at the Swansea.com Stadium.
The Welsh side have still never recorded a win against their French opponents in five meetings.
Ospreys got off to a bad start with Alex Cuthbert picking up a yellow card for a high tackle in the sixth minute and Maxime Machenaud scoring the subsequent penalty.
But they responded well, Keiran Williams crossing the line on 20 minutes, and Gareth Anscombe adding the conversion and then a penalty ten minutes later.
A dazzling performance from the @racing92 centre! 🌟

Juan Imhoff grabbed a low, flat ball seven minutes before half-time to power over and reduce the deficit, and from then on Racing dominated, largely taking advantage of sloppy Ospreys handling and mistakes in the field.
Virimi Vakatawa and Teddy Thomas both added tries for the visitors, converted by Antoine Gibert, and Finn Russell kicked a penalty from just inside the halfway line.
