Leicester Tigers director of rugby Richard Cockerill will head back to former club ASM Clermont Auvergne hoping his side can do what no team has done since 2009 and beat last year’s finalists at their fortress-like Stade Marcel Michelin.
Cockerill had a two-year stint at the French club before returning home to Leicester in 2004 and knows just how difficult it is to win at the home of last season’s runners-up. Aurelien Rougerie’s side have won their last 74 home games in all competitions and want to make the Tigers victim number 75!
But the wily Cockerill knows what it takes to break home hoodoos and will be looking to replicate Tigers’ famous 2007 victory over Munster in Limerick, which ended the Irish giant’s 12 year unbeaten home record at Thomond Park in the Heineken Cup.
The two European heavyweights will battle it out for the right to face either Ulster Rugby or Saracens in the semi-finals. They also face-off on Saturday afternoon at Ravenhill.
Leicester won Heineken Cup glory two years in a row when they overcame Stade Francais in 2001 and Munster a year later to become the first team in the tournament’s history to successfully defend their title.
Leicester qualified for the knock-out stages after finishing in one of the two best runners-up spots. Ulster proved to be their bogey side in the Pool stage, the men from Belfast inflicting Leicester’s two defeats in this year’s competition.
Clermont Auvergne recovered from their round one defeat to Racing Metro 92 by winning the rest of their Pool matches. Vern Cotter’s men progressed from a tough group, which included Harlequins and the Scarlets, to stay on course to reach the final again and potentially send-off Cotter in perfect style with the biggest title of them all.
Leicester are flying domestically, having won their last six matches, including a fine 22-16 away victory against former Heineken Cup finalists Northampton Saints last weekend.
In stark contrast, Clermont paint a picture of inconsistency. They have won three of their last six and have not managed to win two in a row in that time, losing at Brive last weekend in their dress-rehearsal. However, nobody has been able to beat them at home once again this season, which is where they play this Saturday.
Cockerill has no new injury worries, while Clermont hope French centre Wesley Fofana will be fit to play after recovering from a rib injury. Cotter has doubts, however, over Sitiveni Sivivatu and Julien Malzieu.
