  1. Bye for now

    So Saracens can start booking their Edinburgh accommodation for the 13 May final.

    Who will join them?

    Leinster travel to the south of France to face Clermont Auvergne in the second semi-final tomorrow. Kick-off is at 15:00 BST. We will have live text commentary right here.

    Bye for now.

  2. Post update

    Munster 10-26 Saracens

    Billy Vunipola

    Billy Vunipola is just speaking to BT Sport, he pays tribute to the "amazing group of team-mates" that he is part of and says that Saracens' big-match street-smarts comes from their experience of losing in the latter stages of this tournaments a few years running before the success in 2016.

  3. Reaction from the press pack

    Munster 10-26 Saracens

    Why do some find Sarries hard to love? Is it the cash? The occasionally grinding style? The post-match song?

    All that soft-cuddly talk seems to be backed up by a genuine band-of-brothers feel to their performances.

  4. O'Mahony out for the handshakes

    Munster 10-26 Saracens

    Peter O'Mahony is back on the pitch for the post-match handshakes. The Munster captain, cloaked in a big duvet coat, did not make it back into the action after being forced off by a blood injury halfway through the second half.

  5. Full time

    Munster 10-26 Saracens

    Ben Spencer kicks deep into the Aviva stands and Munster's Champions Cup dream has been ended in typically ruthless style.

  6. A consolation for Munster

    Munster 10-26 Saracens

    CJ Stander taps, goes and crashes over from five. Ian Keatley adds two more, but the scoreline has long since run away from the Irish province.

    Munster 3-26 Munster

    saar

    Down at pitchside in time to see Wyles' try. The body language of the Saracens bench tells the story; they are in the Champions Cup final yet again. I can hear cries of "Relentless. Relentless," from some of the Sarries players.

  9. Post update

    Munster 3-26 Saracens

    Munster rally as Francis Saili punches through the middle of the Saracens backline, but Alex Goode and Schalk Brits fight the fire for the champions.

    Andrew Conway spills forward as the ball is recycled and Saracens have a scrum down in the corner near their own line to eke out another few seconds.

  10. Substitution

    Munster 3-26 Saracens

    Maro Itoje is replaced by Jim Hamilton in the Saracens' second row.

  11. PENALTY - Munster 3-26 Saracens

    Owen Farrell

    It drops. A superb kick to take Saracens more than three converted scores clear with five minutes remaining.

  12. Post update

    Munster 3-23 Saracens

    Saracens are grinding this game to dust.

    Owen Farrell points to the points after his team is awarded a penalty out wide and from distance.

    If he lands it or not, it will be a few more seconds off the clock...

  13. Post update

    Munster 3-23 Saracens

    The reaction of the Saracens bench to that try was telling. Jamie George was off his feet, pumping his fist.

    They have been joined by Richard Wiggleworth who is off for Ben Spencer at scrum-half. Mako Vunipola has been withdrawn as well.

  14. Sarries Edinburgh-bound?

    Munster 3-23 Saracens

    Saracens held out in defence and then showed Munster how to do it in attack.

    With the red defence scattered by a lung-busting passage of play, Owen Farrell drops the ball onto his instep and his cross-field grubber is gathered by Wyles as he muscles Simon Zebo out of the way and then pirouettes through Tyler Bleyendaal to dot down.

    Owen Farrell adds the extras and this game is surely cooked. 

  15. TRY - Munster 3-21 Saracens

    Chris Wyles

    Chris Wyles scores a try for Saracens
  16. Post update

    Munster 3-16 Saracens

    Saracens' defence is proving stronger than Munster's attack. The red shirts are forced back out of the Saracens 22m.

    Tyler Bleyendaal snaps a drop-goal. But it is a low scrubber. Alex Goode collects as it bounces off the post protecter and Chris Wyles boots clear.

  17. Post update

    Munster 3-16 Saracens

    Dave Kilcoyne is tackled

    Saracens defence coming up hard and fast. Munster's runner hitting at pace and angles.

    All taking place 10 to 15 metres from the Saracens line. This feels pivotal...

  18. Post update

    Munster 3-16 Saracens

    Munster handed a kickable penalty for Michael Rhodes obstruction.

    No time for the tee. They kick for the corner.

    And Rhys Marshall picks out his man with his first throw after coming off the bench.

  19. Substitution

    Munster 3-16 Saracens

    Rassie Erasmus rolls the dice on the sideline for Munster.

    Darren Sweetnam is on in place of Keith Earls on the wing while Stephen Archer comes into the pack.

  20. PENALTY - Munster 3-16 Saracens

    Owen Farrell

    Thirteen points clear and almost over the horizon.
