    FT: Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Time for us to say goodbye after three epic games of European rugby this weekend. 

    You can read all about Leicester's progression to the last four here.

    Thanks for your company. Bring on the semi-finals. 

  2. 'We're very blessed'

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Man of the match Peter Betham on BT Sport: "It was a very big game for us and we’re very blessed and thankful. We were very clinical. More often than not we make mistakes but today was a good day for us. I can’t hear you very well because of this crowd."

    Leicester fans, you noisy blighters...

    "Leicester Tigers have had support for numerous years - wherever the semi-final happens to be, the fans will travel and it will feel like Welford Road. Beware any side up against Leicester Tigers. Three English teams in the semis is a real statement of intent. This was a demoralised Stade side - Leicester were well out in front."

    FT: Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    English club rugby is booming in Europe. 

    Three Premiership teams have made it into the last four of the Champions Cup. 

    Saracens will face Wasps, and six-try Leicester will face either Racing 92 or Toulon, who play later today. 

    If Racing progress, Leicester will have the home country advantage at the City Ground in Nottingham.

    If it's reigning champions Toulon, the semi-final will be in Nice. 

  5. Full-time

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Peter Betham celebrates after scoring a try

    One last attack from Leicester? They earn a line-out in the Stade 22 but the French side steal possession.

    There's no time to capitalise, though. The final whistle is blown.

    Leicester are in the semi-finals of the Champions Cup for the first time since 2009.

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Stade are still scrapping. They've got four minutes left before their Champions Cup exit is confirmed. 

    The French earn a scrum just outside the Leicester 22, and there's a knock on, so they regroup and go again but the Tigers clear the danger. 

  8. Missed penalty

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Owen Williams has hit the post three times so far. Quite a feat, really, but unfortunately you don't win a prize for that. 

    He has a go from 30 metres out after Leicester earn a penalty. This time it goes well wide. 

  9. Post update

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Telusa Veainu in action for Leicester

    You know I said Stade Francais looked knackered?

    They've just allowed Telusa Veainu to break clear. He puts his chunky legs into action and gains 60 metres before feeding to Manu Tuilagi.

    The big Leicester centre is brought down by Jules Plisson, and he's penalised for it. 

  10. Post update

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    The footballing Leicester have won 2-0 against Sunderland to go 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

  11. Post update

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Stade Francais look knackered, but they're still trying to push forward. 

    They try to drive a maul forward from a line-out but they loose the ball too easily and it's a Leicester scrum inside their own 22.

  12. Replacement

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais.

    Some Leicester changes.

    Ben Youngs is off and Jono Kitto is on. 

    Sebastian De Chaves is also introduced in place of Mike Fitzgerald.

  14. Try - Telusa Veainu (missed con Williams)

    Leicester 41-13 Stade Francais

    Telusa Veainu scores a try

    Game, set, match, semi-final place for Leicester.

    Telusa Veainu dances over in the right corner, after putting on the afterburners to race clear. 

    The TMO is in touch with referee Nigel Owens. He wants to check the one-handed grounding by Veainu. It's been approved. 

    Owen Williams hits the post AGAIN with his conversion, though. 

  15. Post update

    Leicester 36-13 Stade Francais

    Scrum in the middle of the park and Leicester steam forward with purpose, before Jeremy Sinzelle makes a well-timed tackle.

    Peter Betham then has another go up the left flank. Stade at full stretch now.

    "I don't think either Racing or Toulon will fancy Leicester on English soil."

  17. Replacement

    Leicester 36-13 Stade Francais

    Here comes the hair.

    Logovi'i Mulipola, with his ACDC style barnet, comes on in the front row for Marcos Ayerza.

    Greg Bateman is also on for hooker Harry Thacker, and Tom Croft is on for Lachlan McCaffrey.

    Meanwhile, for Stade, Hugo Bonneval comes on for Djibril Camera at full-back.

    "Classic Leicester. Punishing mistakes and punishing poor kicks, some of the offloading today has been exceptional. When it's time to attack they're picking the right moments."

  19. Try - Mike Fitzgerald (missed con Williams)

    Leicester 36-13 Stade Francais

    Mike Fitzgerald scores a try

    Surely this is Leicester's now?

    Flanker Mike Fitzgerald scoots over in the corner after being fed by an unselfish Niki Goneva, who's on a hat-trick.

    A brilliant break for the hosts, and a great team try after some nifty footwork from Telusa Veainu and Brendon O'Connor in the build up. 

    Replacement Owen Williams hasn't quite got a handle on his kicking game yet, mind. 

  20. Missed penalty

    Leicester 31-13 Stade Francais

    Owen Williams gets his first sniff of action as he lines up a penalty after Stade are pinged for not releasing.

    His kick is poorly struck and ricochets off the upright.
