Saturday 8 April

Toulouse vs Cell C Sharks -2.30pm (3pm kick-off) on BT Sport 2

Toulouse tamed the Vodacom Bulls last weekend and will be out to bite the Cell C Sharks on Saturday, with the prize being a trip to heavy tournament favourites Leinster in the last four. 

The 2020/21 Champions Cup winners currently lead the Top 14 by six points and have home advantage against South African opposition for the second time in succession. 

However, the Sharks, coached by former international sevens player Neil Powell, scored the most points out of anyone in the last 16, running in seven tries against Munster to claim a 50-35 win in Durban. 

Toulouse captain Julien Marchand is one of three players who make way for the hosts - along with Alexandre Roumat and Santiago Chocobares - as Pierre-Louis Barassi, Peato Mauvaka and Thibaud Flament are drafted in. 

Meanwhile, Powell has been forced into making two changes as Springboks pair Jaden Hendrikse and Eben Etzebeth have both been ruled out of the rest of the campaign with shoulder injuries, while Etzebeth's replacement in the Munster match, Emile van Heerden, will also be missing in France due to a shoulder problem. 

With a battle on their hands to finish in the United Rugby Champions play-off spots, Toulouse will be hoping that their visitors' preoccupation with needing victories on two fronts can prove their undoing at Stade Ernest-Wallon. 

Exeter Chiefs vs DHL Stormers - 5pm (5.30pm kick-off) on BT Sport 3

Exeter are still in the hunt to win a second Champions Cup after a pulsating extra-time win over Montpellier which saw Chiefs prevail only on tries scored following a last-gasp score by Jack Yeandle that was converted by Joe Simmonds. 

Despite the delight of going through however, Rob Baxter will perhaps be a little concerned that the margin of 'victory' was so tight given that the Top 14 champions were down to 14 men for more than 70 minutes following Zach Mercer's dismissal. 

DHL Stormers will therefore pitch up at Sandy Park feeling that they can progress at the expense of the Devonians, having beaten Harlequins 32-28 last time out in Cape Town. 

There is just one alteration in the Exeter XV as Olly Woodburn replaces Rory O'Loughlin, while Stuart Hogg returns from injury to take his place in the squad as Josh Hodge makes way. 

An eye-socket fracture means Deon Fourie's spot in the Stormers' starting line-up is taken by Junior Pokomela, and Hacjivah Dayimani drops to the bench, with Marcel Theunissen coming in. 

The victors will host the winners of La Rochelle vs Saracens. 

Sunday 9 April

La Rochelle vs Saracens - 2pm (3pm kick-off) on BT Sport 1 & BT Sport Ultimate

Arguably the most mouthwatering contest of the four has been left until last as the Champions Cup holders host the Gallagher Premiership leaders. 

La Rochelle only just squeaked past Gloucester thanks to Teddy Thomas' try with the clock in the red, while Saracens ultimately saw off Ospreys after a tough hour or so at the StoneX.

Les Maritimes make two changes from the win over the Cherry and Whites, with Thomas and Joel Sclavi making way for Ulupano Seuteni and Reda Wardi, while Mark McCall's men will be without Andy Christie after he suffered a broken arm against Ospreys. His place in the team is taken by Nick Isiekwe. 

Saracens haven't dined at Europe's top table since 2019/20, the campaign that saw the north Londoners punished for salary-cap breaches.

However, should they get past Ronan O'Gara's charges, the English giants will be quietly confident that they can be successful in securing their fourth Champions Cup in eight seasons.
