Exeter Chiefs face Racing 92 in the European Champions Cup final at Ashton Gate in Bristol on Saturday with both teams looking for their first European success. Racing 92 made the final in 2016 and 2018 but lost on both occasions, however the experience of those disappointments will benefit them here.

This is the first time since 2010 where we are guaranteed a new European champion but who will it be – the flamboyant yet unpredictable Racing 92 or the conservative Exeter Chiefs?

Exeter Chiefs Form


Exeter Chiefs’ form has dropped off somewhat during recent weeks but that can largely be put down to players being rested in some games with the final in mind. When the Chiefs needed to step it up last week they did to beat Bath 35-6 in the Premiership semi-final.

In terms of the European Championship the Chiefs are unbeaten in eight matches with seven victories and a draw. They beat Toulouse 28-18 in the semi-final to make it through.

This will be the Exeter Chiefs’ first ever European Champions Cup final and a chance to make history for the club. They are known for their predominantly forward dominated approach with exceptionally strong set pieces, but they’ll need to get a handle on Racing 92’s far more expansive approach.

Exeter Chiefs News


Exeter Chiefs, like Racing 92, have received an all clear in terms of COVID-19. The squad is fit and health with a number of key players getting some rest over recent weeks.

Racing 92 Form


Racing 92 have recently begun their 2020/21 Top 14 campaign and have won two of their opening three matches. In terms of the European Champions Cup they qualified top of a very tough group which included Saracens and Munster, only suffering one defeat.

Racing defeated defending champions, Saracens 19-15 in the Champions Cup semi-final to qualify for their third final in five years. They ended on the wrong end of the scoreline in both their previous finals.

The biggest challenge for Racing 92 will be finding parity at set pieces which will allow their more flamboyant style to flourish against a conservative Chiefs outfit.
