Murrayfield to give Edinburgh the edge

158

Richard Cockerill has worked wonders up at Edinburgh and now the head coach faces his toughest test as his side welcome Munster to Murrayfield in the European Champions Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

Edinburgh to win @ 6/4

Many at Cockerill’s struggling former club Leicester Tigers might well be ruing the decision to move the head coach on as the Englishman is rightly receiving plenty of plaudits for his work north of the border.

Having finished top of a group that included the likes of Toulon, Montpellier and Newcastle Falcons, Edinburgh have shown they have the ability to compete with some formidable opposition.

They will have to produce their game of the campaign so far to overcome Munster and their Irish stars but on home soil, and with Cockerill pulling the strings, the Scots might just be able to edge this one in front of what is being tipped to be a big crowd at Murrayfield.

Racing 92 -3.5 FT Handicap @ 25/27

With Saracens and Leinster looking set to get victories on home soil this Saturday against Glasgow and Ulster respectively, the attention turns to a mouth-watering all-French affair on Sunday.

The impressive Paris La Defense Arena will see Racing 92 welcome Top 14 rivals Toulouse to the capital in what should be a must-see encounter.

Toulouse have enjoyed a real renaissance this season as they lead the way in the Top 14 but Racing 92 will provide one of their biggest challenges of the campaign to date.

Finn Russell, Teddy Thomas and Simon Zebo are all outstanding threats in the Racing backline and with the home crowd behind them, they should be able to fall on the right side of the full-time handicap market.
