The quarter-final draw of the Amlin Challenge Cup has produced two all-English ties.
Wasps' win over Viadana has handed them a home tie against Gloucester while Sale's triumph in Biarritz has teed up a match against Northampton Saints at the AJ Bell Stadium.
Bath qualified for the quarter-finals as top seeds and have been drawn against Brive, the lowest ranked side of the five who won their respective Challenge Cup pools, while Harlequins will travel to Stade Francais in a repeat of the 2011 final. The ties will be played over April 3, 4, 5 and 6.
The draw for the semi-finals has also taken place - the winner of Wasps and Gloucester's game will have home advantage against either Bath or Brive. And in the other half, Sale or Saints will host Stade Francais or Harlequins.
