Here are all the details on how to watch the semi-final match between Toulon and Leicester.
Toulon v Leicester live stream: How to watch from anywhere
The final European semi-final match taking place this weekend sees RC Toulon take on Leicester Tigers in the Challenge Cup.
It has been a while since the two sides last faced each other in European competition, with the last tie coming in the group stages of the 2014/15 Champions Cup. The two sides both won their home matches.
In terms of form Toulon booked their place in the semi-final thanks to a narrow 11-6 victory over the Scarlets, and since the restart they also beat Lyon and lost to La Rochelle in the Top 14.
Leicester on the other hand got through Castres after a number of players on the French team tested positive for the Coronavirus. Disregarding that result the Tigers have struggled since the restart winning only two games from seven matches.
That being said they won their last match against Northampton 28-24 and because of their cancelled win over Castres, they will be well rested for Toulon this weekend.
Toulon: Daniel Ikpefan, Masivesi Dakuwaqa, Bryce Heem, Duncan Paia’aua, Gabin Villière, Louis Carbonel, Tane Takulua, Jean Baptiste Gros, Anthony Etrillard (captain), Beka Gigashvili, Swan Rebbadj, Romain Taofifenua, Charles Ollivon, Raphael Lakafia, Sergio Parisse.
Replacements: Bastien Soury, Sébastien Taofifenua, Emerick Setiano, Erwan Dridi, Brian Alainu’uese, Julien Ory, Anthony Meric, Facundo Isa
