Leicester Tigers’s huge Champions Cup clash against Leinster has been billed as “one of the special European games” as the competition reaches the quarter-final stage this weekend.

Leicester, the Premiership leaders, host Irish giants Leinster, who are top of the United Rugby Championship standings, at Welford Road in a meeting of two European greats.

The Tigers last won European rugby’s biggest prize in 2002 while Leinster are four-time champions, winning the competition for the first time as they beat Leicester in the 2009 final.

“Leicester are probably international quality in every position in my opinion,” Leinster head coach Stuart Lancaster said ahead of this weekend’s match. “It’s not dissimilar from our team. They have got a lot of experienced players. It’s going to be one of the special European games for sure.”

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Leicester vs Leinster, as well as the rest of the Champions Cup quarter-finals.
