The kick-off is given by the Stade Français and Nicolás Sánchez for this knockout round of the Champions Cup.

From the beginning of the match, the locals pressed and punctuated the match with offensives from all sides.

And against all odds, in the 5th minute, it was full-back Telusa Veainu who scored the first try of the match after a poor finish by Finn Russell. The Tongien crossed the countryside without being able to be reached by the residents of Ile-de-France. Sanchez converts, 0-7.

At minute 11, the debates are balanced and the Parisians respond proudly to the Racing 92 players.

3 minutes later, Nicolás Sánchez allows his team to create a first break by scoring 3 more points after a foul in the scrum by Cedate Gomes Sa, 0-10.

Still on the match court, Adrien Lapègue brought down from a corner after a 25-metre run after a good touch from Harry Glover, 3-15. The Argentine international does not convert.

With 12 minutes remaining, the score has not changed and it remains 15-3 for Stade Français.

It was not until the 32nd minute that the young man number 9 added 3 points to his team’s score after a foul by the Parisians, 6-15.

Double blow for the Stade Français who lost their winger, Sefanaia Naivalu, for a dangerous tackle on Louis Dupichot synonymous with a second yellow card and a red card. The referee points to the posts and sanctions a penalty try for the locals, 13-15.

Adrien Lapègue does it again and knocks down Teddy Thomas from a school overflow frame to get into in-goal and score his second try of the game, 13-20. Embarrassed by his knee, Nicolás Sánchez still converted his teammate’s attempt, 13-22.

The break is called, the players of the match return to the locker room.
