Toulon's impressive 29-14 win over Leinster means the semi-final line-up of the 2014 Heineken Cup is now confirmed.
Toulon's win over Leinster has dashed hopes of an all-Ireland semi-final at the Aviva Stadium and if Munster are to progress to the final, they must go to Marseille and beat Toulon on April 27 at the Stade Veledrome, the ground that staged the final of the 2010 Amlin Challenge Cup.
Before Toulon tackle Leinster at the end of April, Clermont Auvergne will travel to Twickenham to face Saracens. Sarries dispatched Ulster 17-15 on Saturday evening to book their place in the final four while Clermont saw off Leicester at their Stade Marcel de Michelin home.
Saracens' game against Clermont will kick-off at 15.40 BST while Toulon's game will be at 15.30 BST on the Sunday.
