Leinster vs Toulouse Preview


Leinster have been handed a nine point handicap for this clash. I feel they will cover that considering Toulouse’s struggles this season, particularly on the road.

  • Leinster have won their last 2 matches against Toulouse.

  • Leinster have covered the -9 handicap in their last 2 matches against Toulouse.
  • Toulouse are winless in 3 of their last 4 matches.

Head to Head


In the 12 matches these two have played each other each have won on six occasions. Leinster have however won the last two, the last of which was a 30-12 win in April 2019.

Leinster Form


Leinster come into this semi-final as favourites as they look for yet another Champions Cup final. Last week the Irish outfit were magnificent in beating Leicester Tigers 23-14 in the quarter-final.

They did lose their two prior matches away to the Stormers and Sharks in the United Rugby Championship. Leinster however sent a weakened squad to South Africa in order to keep their star players fresh for the Champions Cup.

Leinster Team News


Leinster have no reported injuries ahead of this clash.

Toulouse Form


Toulouse will be the underdogs coming into this match in Ireland. It has not been the French club’s best year in terms of performance but they have started finding some form of late.

Last week Toulouse beat Munster in the quarter-final. It turned out to be an absolute classic with the match ending 24-24 after extra time. That meant it went down to a goal kicking shootout which Toulouse won.

No match in the Champions Cup has gone the distance like that since 2009. Before beating Munster on penalties, Toulouse defeated La Rochelle 23-16 at home in the Top 14.

Toulouse Team News


Toulouse should be at full strength when they announce their team on Friday.

Verdict

Leinster are dominant at the moment and at home should be too strong. I'm backing them to cover the -9 handicap against Toulouse.
