Challenge Cup: Clermont wins against the Cheetahs and awaits the winner of Montpellier-Ulster

Ruan Pienaar a guidé les Cheetahs contre Clermont mais ça n’a pas suffi. MAXPPP – Thierry LARRET

Clermont was scared but won against the Cheetahs this Saturday, April 6, in the round of 16 of the Challenge Cup. ASM awaits the winner of Montpellier-Ulster, which will be played this Sunday, April 7 (1:30 p.m.).

By winning against the South African Cheetahs (27-22) this Saturday April 6, Clermont validates its ticket for the quarter-finals of Challenge. Well ahead twenty minutes from the end (27-3), the Auvergne suffered a scare at the end of the match, seeing the South Africans come back (27-22, 72nd). The Jaunards ended up holding on to raise their arms at the final whistle.

Clermont on shift

L’ASM will face the winner of Montpellier-Ulster at home. In the event of success for the Hérault club, the Franco-French confrontation will have a flavor of its own, other than the taste of the final phase.

Why ? On June 7, for the last day of Top 14, Clermont will host the MHR. A meeting which could be decisive in the fight for maintenance. The possible quarter-final could therefore be a first observation round. But we're not there yet…
