THE PREDICTION

Saracens produced a brilliant display to defeat Leinster in the quarter-finals of the European Champions Cup and will now have the confidence that they can lift the title. In a season marred with controversy for Sarries, they can still end it on a high and can move a step closer to achieving that goal by overcoming Racing 92. The hosts were also mightily impressive as they knocked Clermont Auvergne out of the competition, handing them an extremely rare defeat at Stade Marcel-Michelin. There is little to choose between the two teams and both make a superb case for reaching the final but Saracens appear to have a real desire to win this competition and they can defy the odds to overcome the French outfit.
