European Champions Cup final – Saracens v Clermont AuvergneVenue: Murrayfield Date: Saturday, 13 May Kick-off: 17:00 BST Coverage: Live on BBC Radio 5 live and updates on BBC local radio and live scores on the BBC Sport website
The biggest single game in European Rugby Union club competition, the Champions Cup Final, will live stream from Scotland Saturday as defending cup holders Saracens face powerhouse French club Clermont Auvergne who will be making their third trip to the European final in the past five years — and hoping the result finally falls their way.
On both previous occasions, Clermont has lost the European championship match to fellow French side Toulonnaise, but though Head Coach Franck Azema asserts that his team is “proud” of their performances in both final defeats, he also hopes that Clermont can turn the page on their always-a-bridesmaid past.
“We are very consistent and our history shows this. We should be proud of it and carry it with us,” Azema said on Saturday. “But we have the opportunity to write a new chapter. Not to erase the history but simply to write something new.”
But Saracens are heavily favored to become just the fourth-ever back-to-back European Rugby Union champions, and if they are able to fulfill the predictions, the win would be their 100th in European competition
