Leinster v Toulouse, 1pm, RDS, Pool 1
Leinster to win by 1-12 17/10
A windy setting in the RDS will keep the scoring low and ensure a tight contest over the 80 minutes as both sides attempt to take control of Pool 1.
Leinster are missing a host of internationals for the clash while Toulouse are at full strength for their visit to Dublin having won 11 and drawn one of their last 12 matches in all competitions.
The two sides boast 8 European cups between them but Leo Cullen’s defending champions are expected to edge a tight tussle and reclaim top spot heading into Round Six.
Montpellier v Newcastle, 1pm, Pool 5
Montpellier -16 10/11
Picamoles to score anytime 7/5
Despite a slow start to the Top14 where they lie eights points outside the Barrages, Montpellier are expected to click into full gear today with the Springbok half back duo of Ruan Pienaar and Johan Goosen guiding Vern Cotter’s charges to a vital try-bonus point victory over Newcastle Falcons.
The Premiership side have conceded the most penalties in the Champions Cup and with their league safety at risk you couldn’t blame them for focusing on other key fixtures ahead.
Montpellier sit four points behind pool leaders Edinburgh after four rounds and with a trip to Murrayfield coming up next weekend a five-point haul today will be welcomed as they try claim back top spot.
