Clermont are the best team never to have won a European title and after the heartbreak of 2015 when they fell to Toulon at the last hurdle and their dismal campaign last term, they feel they have points to prove on Saturday. They have comfortably navigated their way through to the final with some truly remarkable players in their number, but they are coming up against a side who have been there, done that and collected the winner’s medal.
Saracens are on the verge of history. Win on Saturday and they will become only the fourth side to win back-to-back titles after Leicester, Leinster and Toulon achieved the feat. With that comes a place in European greatness and Mark McCall’s side look nicely poised to sit atop that pantheon.
It promises to be a fascinating clash. On one hand you have the beautiful attacking ability of Clermont’s backs and then you have the most miserly of defences in Saracens, who also have that cutting edge to score from their own tryline. They boast differing styles but both are in the final on merit, not through fluke. Flip a coin, this one will be close.
Saracens are favourites to lift the trophy again and to leave Clermont floundering once again at the final hurdle.
This final hurdle has become a bit of a curse for Clermont – over the last five years they have competed in eight semi-finals across all competitions and do not have a trophy to show for it.
Will Saturday be the day they finally defeat their demons and lift some silverware or will Saracens make it two in a row?
