Pool 4 of the Champions Cup will be a lot clearer at the end of this weekend, but, as it stands, Racing 92, Saracens and Munster are all in the running to win the group or qualify for the last eight.

With three of five second-placed teams set to go through to the knockout stages, there is still a good chance that two teams will progress from this pool, but much depends on Sunday's game in La Defense Arena.

Racing 92 warmed up for the visit of Munster with a 27-19 home win over Clermont - their fifth straight win in all competitions.

Saracens prepared for their clash with Ospreys at Liberty Stadium with a 62-5 victory over Worcester Warriors last weekend, but their loss to Exeter over Christmas means they are now 18 points behind Leicester Tigers at the foot of the table.

And there was little comfort for Ospreys over Christmas either with three defeats in a row for the Swansea side in their Welsh derbies.
