It looked as though the French side might have been about to edge the boys in blue when Teddi Iribaren scored his fourth penalty of the day with just ten minutes to go.

So, a final reminder on where to watch Leinster vs Racing 92 - Sky Sports Action or BT Sport 2 - Kick-off 4.45pm.

Anybody looking for an open, entertaining Champions Cup final was shot down by a tight, attritional first half with space at a premium and defences on top in the colourful San Mames Stadium in Bilbao, Spain. Westmeath man Robbie Henshaw is partnered by Garry Ringrose for the province's first European Cup final since their last title success in 2012.

Well, Leinster and Racing 92 share between them the five nominees for this year's European Player of the Year.

"That game is my favourite memory from my rugby career, even including winning the World Cup, because I was quite young and new to the side".

"But what we want to do is not only to worry them, but to beat them".

So they can play different styles and that will suit them against Racing 92 because they have a huge pack.

After a flawless performance in the pool stages, Leinster progressed to the quarter-final with a 100% win record.

The Australian added that Leinster fly-half Johnny Sexton, captain Isa Nacewa and head coach Leo Cullen have all played key roles in their unbeaten European campaign so far this season.

"They have lost Maxime Machenaud though, who ruptured knee ligaments against Bordeaux last weekend, and he really is quite talismanic for them". We're under no illusions, it's a very formidable bunch of players that we'll be up against.

Dan Carter, Joe Rokocoko and Ben Tameifuna are aiming to complete a double of Champions Cup and Super Rugby, a feat that can also be accomplished by Leinster's Jamison Gibson-Park.

Speaking on the EPCR European Rugby Show, O'Connor said of Racing: "I think what we saw in the first 30 minutes [against Munster Rugby] is that if you are not incredibly accurate defensively, they have got a lot of points in them".
