Ulster Rugby will be hoping to end Racing 92’s five-game winning run at home when they visit Paris La Defense Arena on Saturday, live on BT Sport and beIN SPORTS from 17:30 BST.
- Racing 92 and Ulster have never met before, and Racing will be the 14th French club that Ulster have faced in Europe’s top flight.
- Racing are enjoying a five-game winning streak at home, their best run, averaging 29 points scored per match in that time.
- Ulster have lost six of their last seven away games (W1) including three on French soil.
- Racing were one of just two sides to have a 100% success rate at both the line out and scrum in Round 1 (also Lyon).
- Heineken Man of the Match Finn Russell made four offloads in Round 1, no player made more. The Scot also beat four defenders and made 77 metres.
🗣 @Jordimurphy: "There's a serious drive in this squad, I think so far you've only seen the tip of the iceberg and I'm really excited to see what lies ahead. I've made the right decision and I'm really enjoying it at the minute."

2017/18 Champions Cup finalists Racing 92 put on an attacking masterclass to defeat Ulster Rugby 44-12 in a Pool 4 clash at the Paris La Defense Arena.
Racing 92 dominated the early stages but fell behind when Michael Lowry broke away and found Will Addison who handed off to David Shanahan and he sprinted clear for the opening try.
What a score for Ulster! 🙌
Try machine Jacob Stockdale touches down after not one, but two perfectly placed crossfield kicks!

Finn Russell cut the gap with a penalty kick and despite Ulster going down to 14 men with Nick Timoney being shown a yellow card, Jacob Stockdale ran in a second Ulster try after a superb breakaway from the Irish province.
That was as good as it got for Ulster as Racing scored two tries before half-time thanks to Teddy Iribaren and Wenceslas Lauret, with Finn Russell adding the extras.
Russell extended the Racing lead with a penalty goal at the end of the first half, and they continued to dominate after the interval with Juan Imhoff dotting down a third try at the posts.

That try opened the floodgates for the French side who scored two further tries, with Teddy Thomas and Simon Zebo getting in on the act in the latter stages.
Racing 92 – who picked up five points in the victory – will host Leicester Tigers in Round 3, while Ulster Rugby will take on Scarlets in Llanelli.
