Watch the Match Highlights from the Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 - 2nd Leg fixture between Leicester Tigers and Clermont Auvergne at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.

Tigers booked a place in the quarter-finals with back-to-back wins over two legs.

Playing in the unfamiliar situation of aggregate scores counting over the two games, Tigers followed up a win in France with a 27-17 verdict in the return at Mattioli Woods Welford Road on Saturday to win 56-27 overall and book a quarter-final home meeting with Leinster Rugby.

Tigers, who led 29-10 from the opening leg after scoring five tries at the Stade Marcel-Michelin six days ago, stated all week that the job was still to be done and led 7-3 at half-time in the return fixture thanks to a Hanro Liebenberg try scored after just nine minutes.

Matt Scott, on as a replacement, provided the next try in the early stages of the second half and Freddie Steward added another following a penalty try in front of a 22,722 crowd in the Easter sunshine.
