Heineken Cup countdown starts now

Figure image
The Heineken Cup returns with the back-to-back ties in Rounds 3 and 4 providing a make-or-break for club's chasing Europe's top honour.

Leicester Tigers travel to face Clermont Auvergne on Sunday before hosting the French high-fliers on Saturday, December 19 (6pm) in games that will go a long way to deciding the outcome of Pool 3.

The Heineken Cup expects to welcome its 10millionth supporter during Round 4 after attendances topped 280,000 for the 24 matches in the opening two rounds this season.

Tigers face a tough task against Clermont, finalists in the French championship in each of the last three seasons, but the defending English champions have recorded five ‘doubles’ in the back-to-back rounds in previous seasons.

Sixty-eight of the 120 back-to-back rounds since the format was introduced in 1999/2000 have ended in double joy for one of the teams, including over half of last season’s double headers.
