Leinster are determined to score another famous victory over Clermont Auvergne on French soil - memories of their 2012 semi-final success remain fresh - in their bid to become European's most decorated side. This afternoon's last-four clash in Lyon is the province's 150th European Cup match.
Defending champions Saracens showed their class with a 20-point second half salvo, including tries from Mako Vunipola and Chris Wyles, to knock Munster out of the Champions Cup at the semi-final stage.
After four successive defeats in European Cup semi-finals, and a Challenge Cup semi-final reversal at Thomond Park, the time feels right for Munster to return to the final stage after a gap of nine years. Reigning champions Saracens can expect a red-hot welcome at a packed out Aviva Stadium.
