Clermont v Leicester live stream: How to watch the Champions Cup match from anywhere

The first European Champions Cup round-of-16 weekend concludes at the Stade Marcel-Michelin this afternoon.

Leicester Tigers travel to France to face Clermont Auvergne (kick-off 3.15pm UK & Ireland time) and should be confident having progressed as Pool B winners.
