  • La Rochelle have won 11 of their 12 matches in all competitions.
  • La Rochelle have covered the -10 handicap in their last 4 home matches in all competitions.
  • Stade Francais have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches in all competitions.
  • Stade Francais have not covered the +10 handicap in 2 of their last 3 away matches in the Top 14.


Stade Francais hold a 10-7 lead with 2 draws in the 19 encounters.

The previous match ended with Stade Francais winning at home by 27-14.

La Rochelle Form

Les Maritimes have been sublime in recent months. They have recently been crowned European Champions and are in second place in the Top 14 with sixteen wins from twenty-five matches.

A 47-28 home win over Exeter Chiefs was followed by a 23-8 away loss to Toulon. They would then lose 42-31 at Montpellier.

La Rochelle beat Leinter 27-26 in Ireland in the European Champions Cup in their last match. A titanic match between the two best sides in Europe unfolded as a strong fight back in the second half saw the French side battle hard to claim a surprising win by one point in Dublin.

Team news has not been released yet but we expect the same squad to be available.

Stade Francais Form

Stade Francais are currently in third place on the table with thirteen wins in twenty-five games. Their away form is concern as they have lost eight of their twelve away matches in the Top 14.

Recent form has seen Stade Francais win 27-22 at Brive before beating Toulouse 19-10 at home. A 32-16 away loss to Clermont would follow subsequently.

The most recent result was a surprise 31-31 home draw with Lyon. A tale of two halves was the order of the day as Stade Francais blew a 28-0 half time advantage to draw the match. An injury time penalty for Lyon allowed them to claim a famous come from behind draw.

The squad has not been announced as of yet but we anticipate the last matchday squad to be available.


La Rochelle will be too strong at home and are in great form and as such I am anticipating them to cover the handicap.
