    • Toulouse
    • Stade Francais
    • 80' Stade engage early at scrum and Toulouse kick penalty to touch in their half. Jauzion makes another burst through midfield as Toulouse look for one final try. Stade offside and Skrela kicks the penalty to make final score 42-16. Great effort from Toulouse who now face reigning champions Leinster in the semi-finals. Thanks for joining us.
    • 76' Skrela on target from the touchline and Toulouse lead 39-16 with just a few minutes remaining.
    • 74' Toulouse producing some sublime rugby. Ball is turned over and Medard adds gloss to counter attack by grubbing the ball forward for Heymans to run on to and touch down in the corner. Superb. 37-16.
    • 71' Simple for Skrela and Toulouse lead 32-16.
    • 70' Superb catch and drive by the Toulouse forwards from a lineout just inside Stade half. Toulouse drive to within 10m of Stade try line before the Parisians again concede another penalty - Simon Taylor this time and the former Scotland international gets a yellow.
    • 67' Skrela nails another lovely kick and Toulouse lead 2916. Could be all over for the Paris side.
    • 67' Toulouse keeping hold of the ball well and denying Stade possession. If the Parisians don't score next - and soon - then it could be all over for them. Pressure finally tells and Stade infringe by handling in a ruck.
    • 61' Skrela adds conversion to extend Toulouse lead to 26-16.
    • 60' Toulouse lookng for the killer blow now and produce some fantastic rugby. Jauzion starts attack down left wing, brilliant hands keeps the ball alive and Kelleher swtiches point of attack to the blind side. The ball is recycled and lovely pop pass puts Albacete in just left of the Stade posts. Fantastic stuff as Toulouse lead 24-16.
    • 57' Toulouse pilling the pressure on Stade now and Jauzion again makes inroads down the left. Ball is recycled and Dusautoir almost puts Heymans through. Skrela off target with a drop goal but ref calls them back for illegal shoulder charge by Leguizamon on Jauzion and another chance for Skrela to extend Toulouse lead. But kick from out wide is pulled by the fly-half.
    • 49' Now Stade infringe at restart - Roncero this time - and another chance for Skrela. His kick goes in off the upright but its good enough to reclaim lead for Toulouse. 19-16 Toulouse.
    • 48' Toulouse offside at the restart and now Stade have another chance to draw level. Beauxis again on target and score level at 16-16.
    • 46' Toulouse earn penalty almost immediately back in Stade 22 and chance for them to re-take the lead. Easy enough kick for Skrela and he nails it comfortably against his former side. Toulouse lead 16-13.
    • 44' High tackle Johnson on Bastareaud and chance for Beauxis to level the score. Great kick from just inside Toulouse half to make score 13-13.
    • 41' Skrela gets the second half started. Johnson is on the Toulouse front row.
    • 40' Skrela adds conversion and Toulouse go into the interval with a 13-10 lead. Perfect time to score for the home side in what has been a tight first half, which Stade have just about edged in terms of possession, if not on the scoreboard. All set for a cracking second half.
    • 39' Toulouse again on the attack but Stade claim loose ball and Leguizamon kicks downfield - too far as ball runs over dead ball line and Toulouse have scrum back on Stade 22. Kelleher makes half break, the ball is recycled and Jauzion is again nearly through. The centre if held up but Toulouse retain possession and Jauzion creashes over. Lovely score. 11-10 to Toulouse.
    • 36' Long pass from Skrela to Poitrenaud and the full-back dances through several tackles into the Stade 22. But ball is spilled forward and Stade hoof ball upfield and only last ditch defence from Picamoles prevents another try for Stade. Thrilling passage of play.
    • 34' Toulouse have got their tails up now and pressure leads to Stade conceding penalty which France fly-half Skrela lands easily to cut deficit to 10-6.
    • 29' Toulouse spin ball wide to left wing and Clerc feeds inside to Poitrenaud only for home side to concede penalty for playing ball off their feet. Very little between the two sides so far.
    • 27' Beauxis cancels out Toulouse penalty to make it 10-3 to Stade.
    • 25' Toulouse on the attack now and they almost reply immediately. Jauzion almost burst clean through, and then Poitrenaud has a half chance out wide but ref calls them back for an illegal tackle and Skrela has chance to cut Stade's lead. Nice kick makes score 7-3.
    • 22' Beauxis adds conversion and Stade lead 7-0.
    • 21' Stade enjoying good period of attacking possession. Bastreaud makes in roads and Southwell first of all has half chance on left corner, before ball is recycled and Beauxis puts Roncero through and the hooker crashes over for the game's first try. 5-0 Stade.
    • 12' Stade win throw and launch rolling maul, but move comes to an end when Roncero knocks on and Kelleher clears upfield. Missed chance for Stade!
    • 11' Penalty to Stade and Beauxis kicks for corner. Superb kick sets up Stade lineout 5m from Toulouse line.
    • 9' Stade penalised for entering ruck through the side and chance for Fritz from just inside visitors' half. Decent effort but it strays wide at the end.
    • 5' Beauxis makes first break of the game after collecting his chip and his kick ahead looks certain to lead to a score for Stade. But the ball evades Gasnier and Heymans gets back to touch down and prevent a certain try.
    • 4' Both sides feeling their way through the opening few minutes, a bit like heavyweight boxers.
    • 1' The sun is shining, the fans are roaring and we're all set for a great game.
    • 1' The game gets underway and there is a superb atmosphere in Toulouse.
    • - Twice champions Toulouse will be slight favourites due to their league form, but Stade's season can be rescued by success in Europe so in that respect the Parisians have more to play for.
    • - There is class throughout both teams, though English fans will be surprised that James Haskell has been left out of the Stade squad. But Scotland back Hugo Soutwehll starts at full-back in a Stade backline tha includes the France giant Mathieu Bastareaud.
    • - A perfect afternoon for running rugby at the Stade Municipal in Toulouse, and a real heavyweight encounter between two giants of French rugby - the city slickers of Stade Francais against the kings of the southwest.
    • - Good afternoon and welcome to the last quarter-final of the Heineken Cup, an all-French battle between Toulouse and Stade Francais.
