Racing 92 stretch unbeaten run despite late Ospreys rally

Juan Imhoff, who scored Racing 92's match-winning try in the Heineken Champions Cup semi-finals

Racing 92 continue to set the pace at the top of Pool 4 in the Heineken Champions Cup as they saw off a late Ospreys rally to clinch a 40-27 success at the Paris La Défense Arena.

The Paris outfit dominated the first 55 minutes by which time they led 40-5 but a depleted Ospreys side stormed back in great style with four tries in the closing quarter to earn their first point of the campaign.

Winger Lesley Klim notched a brace for the visitors while replacement Luke Price finished off a great break from Tom Williams and there was a stunning solo try from inside his own half by scrum half Shaun Venter after a chip ahead.

Ospreys recovered well from an early scare as the video referee ruled out a try after only 38 seconds for a knock-on in the build-up.

After a spell of pressure the visitors moved the ball well to their left flank and Cai Evans’s precision pass allowed winger Luke Morgan to speed in from 30 metres.

Racing wasted no time in striking back and were level after ten minutes when Henry Chavancy’s pass paved the way for left winger Louis Dupichot to cross.

Opposite winger Juan Imhoff was quickly in the action himself with a brace of tries as first he intercepted Marty McKenzie’s pass to stroll over and then on 25 minutes he combined with Dupichot in centrefield to again add the finishing touch.

Racing notched their bonus point try when scrum-half Maxime Machenaud offloaded for the supporting Simon Zebo to go over in the final minute of the first half.

Powerhouse efforts by Georges-Henri Colombe and number eight Yoan Tanga Mangene took Racing further clear in the early stages of the second period and there was no denying their overall dominance despite an impressive fightback from the Welshmen.

Racing now move on to take on Munster in their next Pool 4 contest in Paris on Sunday, January 12 while Ospreys play hosts  to Saracens the previous day.
