What's on the line? 

This game is a must win for Connacht in order to keep alive their hopes of reaching the quarter finals. That will be no easy task, with Toulouse having won all four of their games in the competition up to this point.

Connacht have won two of their contest thus far, but actually sit in third place in the group. Despite Gloucester winning only one match, their tally of five bonus points leaves them ahead of the Irish province in the standings.

Connacht travel to Montpellier in their final pool game, where another victory will be required.

With the Six Nations only a matter of weeks away these two games will act as a final chance to impress Ireland coach Andy Farrell. Jack Carty will have his eye on a place in the squad after injuries to Jonathan Sexton and Joey Carbery, while Bundee Aki will be hoping to hold off the competition to retain his place in the starting XV.
