The ASM Clermont Auvergne against Newcastle Falcons match will get the quarter-finals underway on the Friday night with the clash between West Country neighbours Bath Rugby and Bristol Rugby kicking-off at noon on Saturday.
The contest between Newport Gwent Dragons and Brive will follow on Saturday afternoon with Saracens and Glasgow Warriors meeting on the Sunday afternoon.
