Edinburgh to face Racing 92 in Round of 16

Edinburgh to face Racing 92 in Round of 16

Edinburgh Rugby have been drawn to face Racing 92 at Paris La Défense Arena in next month's Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16.

The knockout match will take place on the weekend of 2/3/4 April and sees Richard Cockerill's side face off against last season's beaten Champions Cup finalists and one of European rugby's premier outfits.

It will be the first time Edinburgh have faced the Parisians since the 2012-13 season, while it's also a replay of 2011-12 - a European campaign in which the capital club secured famous home and away victories over Racing 92 en-route to the club's first-ever Semi-Final berth.

Should Edinburgh Rugby progress to the Quarter-Finals of the competition - scheduled for the 9/10/11 April - the capital side will once again hit the road to face current English Premiership leaders Bristol Bears, or French Top 14 side - and last season's Challenge Cup Quarter-Final opponents - Bordeaux-Bègles.

Fixture date, kick-off and broadcast details for the Round of 16 clash will be communicated in due course. You can watch back the full European draw below.


Rounds of 16: 2/3/4 April
Quarter-finals: 9/10/11 April
Semi-finals: 30 April – 1/2 May
Challenge Cup final: Marseille - Friday 21 May
