Everything you need to know ahead of the Heineken Champions Cup clash against Stade Francais at Ashton Gate.



FORM GUIDE

Stade Francais Paris and Bristol Bears have faced each other twice previously in the Heineken Champions Cup, clashing in the pool stage in 2007/08, with each club recording a home victory. 

Bristol Bears have lost their last two home games in the Heineken Champions Cup (excl. cancelled fixtures) after losing only one of their previous five (W4); their last six home games have all ended with margins of 13+ points separating the sides.

Stade Français Paris’ two heaviest defeats in the Heineken Champions Cup have come in their most recent two away games, 41-13 against Leicester Tigers in April 2016 and 36-9 against Connacht Rugby in Round 1 this season.

Bristol Bears have faced TOP 14 opposition on six occasions in the Heineken Champions Cup; they won their initial three such fixtures but have lost their most recent three, including defeats to Clermont and Bordeaux in last season’s competition.

Stade Français Paris have made 131 tackles in the Heineken Champions Cup this season and missed just seven, their tackle success rate of 95% is the best of any club in 2021/22.
