The final round of the Champions Cup pool stage is upon us and, with it, another rehashing of an iconic European pairing. Toulouse will face Munster in their final pool game, and we have all the info you need on how to watch the match in Ireland.

When is Toulouse v Munster?

Toulouse v Munster kicks off at 15:15 Irish time on Sunday 22nd January at the Stade Ernest Wallon in Toulouse.

How to watch Toulouse v Munster?

Toulouse v Munster will be broadcast live on BT Sport. BT Sport's coverage of the match begins on BT Sport 2 at 3pm.

Form guide

Toulouse have won all three of their pool games thus far, and are sitting pretty at the top of the 12-team Pool B with 13 points, and a healthy +53 points difference. The French side also won at Thomond Park against Sunday's opposition in the opening game of the pool stages. They have already qualified for the knockout stages, along with La Rochelle and Leicester.

Munster have won both of their games since that opening loss to Toulouse, and are sitting in sixth place on 9 points, with a +10 points difference. A win for Munster would seal qualification to the knockout stages, though they will need a helping hand in other games to seal a home tie in the last 16.

The pair also met last May in the quarter-finals of last year's competition, with Munster cruelly losing out in only the second ever penalty shoot-out in rugby union history.
