The quarter-final line-up of the Heineken Cup has been confirmed and both English sides will need to get through away ties if they are to progress.
Ulster have qualified as top seeds and they will host Aviva Premiership leaders Saracens while Leicester Tigers will have to go to Clermont, a fiercely difficult task as Les Jaunards are on a 71-match unbeaten run at home.
The reigning champions Toulon host Leinster in France while Toulouse will travel to Munster, who scored six tries on Sunday to ensure a home quarter-final. The ties will be played over the weekend of April 4, 5 and 6.
The semi-finals will see Ulster or Saracens host Clermont or Leicester. And the winner of Toulon or Leinster will welcome Munster or Toulouse with the ties to be played April 25, 26 or 27.
