European Heineken Champions Cup Final Predictions & Tips: Leinster v La Rochelle (Saturday 16:45 BST)
Leinster will be looking to secure their fifth European Heineken Champions Cup success on Saturday when they go to battle with La Rochelle at the Stade Velodrome.
The four-time winners will be looking to go level with French side Toulouse with the most wins in the tournament, while La Rochelle go in search of their first win.
The TOP 14 club will feel they have an advantage over the Irish side after recording a 32-23 victory over them in last season’s semi-finals.
This will be the fifth time that an Irish team has faced a TOP 14 club in the European Cup final, with Irish sides having won on each of the previous four occasions.
It is Leinster’s sixth European Cup final, with Saracens being the only team to turn them over in the showpiece encounter back in 2019.
La Rochelle put up a brave effort in last year’s final as they went down 22-17 at the hands of Toulouse, and they will be determined to create better memories.
I don’t think they will as I am backing Leinster to win their first title since 2018. I think it will be a tight affair with not a lot of tries being scored. I am backing Leinster on the handicap and to win by 6-10 points.
That winning margin score is available at a price of 11/2 with Paddy Power, and you can take advantage of that by signing up with PP and receiving £10 cashback if your first bet fails to win.
