Pool One & Four from 1pm Sunday

Leicester v Racing 92
Sky Sports Arena, 1pm
Leicester don't normally do losing at Welford Road but visitors Racing 92 should find a way to advance to the quarter-finals.

The eliminated Tigers were terrible at Castres last week and lost both games of last month's double-header with Munster.

Racing's livewire number eight Leone Nakarawa, who has scored three tries in this season's tournament, is sure to be involved whatever the Parisiens' tactics.

Munster v Castres
Sky Sports Action, 1pm
Munster will want to make sure of their last-eight place but while they look far too strong for Castres, such superiority may not be reflected in expansive tactics and a blowout scoreline.

The Red Army were twice punished for indiscipline and flashy play in the teams' 17-17 draw in round one and it could have been worse with the TMO denying Castres an injury-time penalty on the tryline.

Castres showed what they can do on the road with a 31-27 win at Clermont in the Top 14 three weeks ago and can stay within 26 points like they did on their 2012 trip to Thomond Park.

Castres +25

Wasps v Ulster
BT Sport 2, 3.15pm
Ulster with a start of seven points looks the bet in Coventry.

Rory Best's side are focused on a fourth straight success to claim top spot in pool one and a losing bonus may well be enough to secure a best-runners-up berth.

Wasps will be seething at their crazy collapse at Harlequins last week to end quarter-final hopes and the Ricoh Arena has not been a stronghold this season.

Ulster +7

La Rochelle v Harlequins
Sky Sports Action, 3.15pm
Wet and windy weather in the Bay of Biscay may not stop La Rochelle racking up a big score for a third time in front of their fans.

Harlequins have plenty of injuries and no incentive to hang tough so take the Privateers to give up 14 second-half points.

La Rochelle -14.5 on second-half handicap
