Leinster v Racing 92: Match preview

Leinster arrive in Bilbao full of confidence having blown away everyone in their path to boast a 100% record in this season’s Champions Cup.

Only once before has this been achieved – Saracens won every game en route to their 2016 success – and the team they beat in the final was of course Racing 92.

The Parisians would be loath to let that happen again and in Dan Carter they have a man who will be more determined than ever to come out on the winning side.

The New Zealand legend will make his final European appearance on Saturday as he counts down to his Racing exit this summer, and would love to sign off with silverware.

Having beaten an Irish province in the semi-finals in the shape of Munster, the Top 14 outfit will be quietly confident in their ability to cause an upset.

The bookmakers have Leinster as heavy favourites and who can blame them when Leo Cullen’s men boast 18 of Ireland’s Grand Slam winners in their squad.

When the likes of the imperious Johnny Sexton, Tadhg Furlong and Jordan Larmour are combined with overseas signings such as Isa Nacewa and Scott Fardy – the result is daunting for the rest.

Leinster have already seen off the teams that have topped the Aviva Premiership and Top 14 – in Exeter Chiefs and Montpellier – both home and away, as well as the back-to-back European champions Saracens.

They also made light work of last season’s Pro12 winners, Scarlets, in the semi-finals as they close in on a record-equalling fourth title in the competition.

Racing themselves can field a number of Test players, with nine of their squad having featured for France in the last 12 months – but with only eight available on Saturday.

Scrum-half Maxime Machenaud agonisingly misses out after rupturing knee ligaments against Bordeaux just last weekend and his loss will be felt.

If Leinster are able to starve their opponents of the ball in the way they have in previous rounds, it could be a long afternoon for a side lacking the man who dictates their tempo.

Leinster v Racing 92: Team news

Leinster’s Fergus McFadden has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after injuring his hamstring against Scarlets in the semi-final.

The 31-year-old did himself harm while scoring in the win over the Welsh region, as the province powered to a 38-16 victory.

Larmour comes in to replace him, while scrum-half Luke McGrath has recovered from an ankle injury and returns to the starting XV.

Carter must be content with a place on the bench alongside fellow former All Black Joe Rokcoko after Patrick Lambie was given the nod at fly-half.

Meanwhile, Teddy Iribaren has the unenviable task of filling Machenaud's boots.

Leinster: Kearney; Larmour, Ringrose, Henshaw, Nacewa; Sexton, L. McGrath; Healy, Cronin, Furlong, Toner, Ryan, Fardy, Leavy, Murphy

Replacements: Tracy, J.McGrath, Porter, Ruddock, Conan, Gibson-Park, Carbery, O'Loughlin

Racing 92: Dupichot; Thomas, Vakatawa, Chavancy, Andreu; Lambie, Iribaren; Ben Arous, Chat, Gomes Sa, Ryan, Nakarawa, Lauret, Le Roux, Nyanga

Replacements: Avei, Kakovin, Johnston, Palu, Chouzenoux, Gibert, Carter, Rokocoko
