European Champions Cup Predictions & Tips: Exeter Chiefs v Leinster (Saturday 17:30 BST)

This could be the tie of the round as defending champions Exeter Chief take on four-time winners Leinster at Sandy Park for the right to reach the semi-finals. The Chiefs showed their champion qualities last time out as they fought back from 14-0 down to defeat Lyon 47-25, while Leinster booked their place in the quarter-finals with a walkover victory against Toulon. These two have locked horns four times before with Leinster winning every single one of them, The Chiefs are unbeaten in their last 11 completed games in this competition, and they have won their last eight at home. Exeter have never beaten Leinster, but I expect that run to come to an end on Saturday. I am backing the defending champions to get over the line with a narrow victory in a high-scoring contest.
