Racing 92 edged a pulsating first ever European match at the brand new U Arena but Munster’s losing bonus point keeps them top of Champions Cup Pool 4.
- Maxime Machenaud finished with 19 points for the hosts, whose victory puts them one point behind the Irishmen going into next weekend's pool stage climax.
- The sides exchanged tries in the first half through Yannick Nyanga and Jean Kleyn, with Machenaud's boot the difference as the hosts led 13-7 at the interval. Missed penalties by Conor Murray and Ian Keatley proved costly for the visitors.
- Marc Andreu squeezed over in the corner for Racing's second try but Keith Earls' balletic footwork saw him brilliantly reduce arrears to 18-14.
- Chris Farrell's try then gave Munster the advantage before an exchange of penalties saw the lead change hands. Racing struck a big blow, though, when Teddy Thomas set up Dimitri Szarzewski to put them 28-27 ahead.
- A monster penalty by Murray was swiftly followed by three points from the tee by Machenaud and the French scrum-half was faultless again as he clinched a dramatic win with another late kick.
- Munster know a bonus-point win at home to Castres Olympique next Sunday afternoon will guarantee top spot. Racing 92 travel to Leicester Tigers and must better Munster's result or face the perils of the best runners-up calculator.
