Edinburgh Rugby host Stade Français Paris on Friday night at BT Murrayfield, hoping to maintain their 100% record in the European Rugby Challenge Cup this season. Edinburgh and Stade Français have met four times in Europe, and twice in the Challenge Cup, with the home side on the day winning all four games.
· Both matches between the clubs in the Challenge Cup came in last season’s pool stage, with the defeated side on the day claiming a losing bonus point.
· Edinburgh have won 13 of their last 14 home fixtures in the Challenge Cup, with their only defeat in that run coming in last season’s quarter-final against La Rochelle.
· Edinburgh are the top points (238) and try (35) scorers in the Challenge Cup after four rounds.
· Stade Français have averaged 20 minutes and 22 seconds of possession per game this season, the most of any side, however Edinburgh rank second in this category (20m 3s).

Edinburgh Rugby sealed a home quarter-final in the European Rugby Challenge Cup after a thrilling finish to their Round 5 encounter with Stade Francais at BT Murrayfield.
- Junior Rasolea's try with a minute of the game left was the last act of a rollercoaster second half which saw the lead exchanged frequently.
- There were no tries in the first half, although four penalties from Sam Hidalgo-Clyne gave the hosts a 12-6 lead, with Jules Plisson striking twice from the tee for Stade Francais.
- After the break, Plisson hit a third penalty before two tries arrived in a minute, Sekou Macalou piling over for the visitors before Hamish Watson thundered through for Edinburgh, with Hidalgo-Clyne's conversion making it 19-16.
- When another Plisson penalty and a Waisea Vuidarvuwalu try made it 26-19 to the TOP14 side, Edinburgh's 100% record looked wobbly.
- Jaco van der Walt then jinked his way through for an unconverted score before kicking a penalty to seize the lead for Edinburgh again, only for Craig Burden to grab it back for Stade, making it 27-33.
- Rasolea's late intervention saw BT Murrayfield erupt and Blair Kinghorn landed a knee-trembling conversion to leave Stade Francais hoping for a best runner-up spot.
