Saracens ahead of Leinster as the favourites for 2019 Champions Cup crown

With only Saracens, Leinster, Toulouse and Munster left in the Champions Cup, who will lift the trophy come the end of the season?

The European Champions Cup was whittled down to just four teams, with the best sides in Europe battling for the ultimate prize in club rugby. Now, with only four teams left in the tournament, Saracens lead the way in the beating with Ladbrokes as they are 11/8. They are now ahead of previous favourites with many bookmakers Leinster, who are 13/8, with Toulouse (11/2) and Munster (7/1) completing the betting. 

Sarries made it through to the semi-final of the competition and the head of the betting via a 56-27 hammering of Glasgow in a display of supreme power. The English side will take on Munster, who squeezed through in a 17-13 win over Edinburgh in the last round, with the Irish side the big underdogs in the competition now due to the fact they have to travel to take on Sarries. In the other semi-final, Leinster take on Toulouse, with the Irish side just getting past Ulster 21-18 in the quarter-finals, while Toulouse won an incredible game as they beat Racing 22-21 on the road after being reduced to 14-men in the first-half. 

In the next round of games, Sarries take on Munster at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday, April 20, while Toulouse travel to Ireland to face Leinster on Sunday, April 21. The fixtures have seen Sarries become the favourites while Leinster have dropped down to second in the running, but will the tag of favourites weigh heavily on the English side, or will they make it three triumphs in four years in the competition.
