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.
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.
Munster have named a strong team for the trip to France, including a recall to the squad for Ireland international Conor Murray. The full Munster team is:
15. Mike Haley; 14. Calvin Nash, 13. Antoine Frisch, 12. Jack Crowley, 11. Shane Daly; 10. Joey Carbery, 9. Craig Casey; 1. Dave Kilcoyne, 2. Niall Scannell, 3. John Ryan; 4. Jean Kleyn, 5. Tadhg Beirne; 6. Peter O'Mahony (captain), 7. John Hodnett, 8. Gavin Coombes
Despite having already qualified for the knockout stages, Toulouse have also named a strong team, with star half-back pairing Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack both starting.
