European Challenge Cup Betting Tips & Predictions: Bath v London Irish (Friday 17:30 BST)

At least one Gallagher Premiership side will be in the Challenge Cup semi-finals as Bath go up against London Irish at The Rec on Friday evening. Bath booked their place in the last eight with a 35-27 win against Zebre, while the Exiles advanced in a high-scoring thriller as they beat Cardiff Blues 41-35. This will be the first times these two English sides will have battled each other in European competition. Bath hit back from 21-7 down against their Italian opponents and managed to score three tries in the second half to advance. London Irish needed a try with the last play of the game from Curtis Rona to secure a dramatic win. I am not sure if this quarter-final will be as exciting as the exiles last game, but I am backing them to make it through to the semi-finals with a narrow 6-10 points victory.
