  • Racing Métro 28-37 Saracens

  • PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 28-37 Farrell lands his toughest penalty of the whole match from a tough angle to secure the win! Great performance from Saracens, poor discipline from Metro. A real thriller in Nantes.

  • YELLOW CARD, RACING MÉTRO, NOIROT! Saracens drop out and Racing have to start again. Fall up to halfway - flag out from the assistant and the replacement Noirot for Racing is yellow carded!

  • Racing dominant at the scrum and they win the penalty. Lick to the corner... Hernandez misses the touchline. Unforgivable.

  • Szarzewski and Ducalcon depart - scrum to Racing 40 metres out.

  • PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 28-34 England's number ten finds the points once again and the lead is stretched to six with five minutes remaining.

  • Olly Barkley replaces Chavancy as John Smit comes on for Saracens. Fall hands off Farrell in his 22, risky play and it doesn't pay off as Saracens win one more penalty at the breakdown.

  • Half gap for Chavancy but Saracens recover - Estebanez looks for territory and Wyles fields the kick, too deep though and Racing will have the dropout.

  • Good counter drive from Métro stops the Saracens maul - wide ball to Barritt who offloads and Wyles is five metres short of the line. Loose ball and Descons hacks clear. Ashton gathers and attempts a grubber to the corner, but the ball drops dead.

  • Ashton returns as Saracens win another breakdown penalty. Going for the killer blow with a lineout five metres out. Loop from Farrell but there's no room for Saracens yet. Farrell in the pocket... drop goal falls wide to the right. Bobo clears to touch.

  • Racing now building the phases in Saracens half but the ball is loose and Farrell hacks on. Racing recover but Descons' box kick is charged down and Saracens attack.

  • Racing this time with the drive at the scrum - Brugnaut comes on for Ben Arous and his experience gets the penalty.

  • PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 28-31 Punishing maul from Saracens, before Tomkins has a crack. Racking up the phases and they win the penalty on the edge of the 22, Qovu the culprit. Farrell converts.

  • Saracens on the attack now, racking up the phases through the forwards in Racing's half. Loose ball hacked on by Racing and Imhoff gets to the ball, but Ducalcon stops the Saracens tackler getting to his feet and it's a penalty. Farrell clears.

  • PENALTY, RACING MÉTRO, DESCONS! 28-28 Scores are level as Descons lands the resulting kick from around 30 metres out.

  • YELLOW CARD, SARACENS, ASHTON! England winger Chris Ashton sin-binned for 'punching' - harsh call but the decision is made.

  • Farrell with the bomb from a free kick but safely gathered by Jacques Cronje who thunders the ball back. Estebanez breaks and de Kock puts in a great tap tackle on Imhoff. Fraser turns the ball over but Métro win the penalty.

  • PENALTY, SARACENS, FARRELL! 25-28 More hard work from the Saracens pack and the win another scrum penalty - Farrell in a good position makes no mistake.

  • Bomb from Farrell causes Fall all sorts of problems and he knocks on - scrum to Saracens inside the Racing 22.

  • Turnover by Saracens but the chip from Brits is collected by Fall. Matadigo forced into touch on the right hand side, lineout to Saracens.
