Leinster and Ulster will both play Heineken Champions Cup semi-finals on Saturday week if they win their respective quarter-finals this weekend.

Leinster are at home to Saracens at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday (3pm) and, as expected, will remain at the Lansdowne Road venue seven days later if they progress, with Clermont or Racing 92 as their opponents.

That last four tie will be shown live on BT Sport – with additional free-to-air coverage on Channel 4 and Virgin Media.

The second semi-final will take place on home ground for Northampton Saints or Exeter Chiefs. So Ulster, who are travelling to Toulouse for Sunday's quarter-final tie, will be on the road again to England just six days later if they were to prevail.

That second semi-final will be broadcast live by BT Sport. EPCR chiefs determined the semi-final venues based on the seedings of the clubs after the pool stages.
