Toulouse are aiming to become the first team to lift the coveted Heineken Cup three times - and their recent Top 16 defeat at the hands of Sunday's opponents will not have any bearing on their Murrayfield mission.
The 1996 and 2003 champions are appearing in their third final in successive seasons and are determined to go out on their own on the Heineken Cup roll of honour.
"I don't think our loss to Stade Francais in the Top 16 three weeks ago is an indication of how the final will go," said Test scrum half Jean-Baptiste Elissalde, who has scored 80 points for Toulouse this season.
"Although I think that may gave Stade Francais a psychological advantage over us, Heineken Cup games cannot really be compared to league games.
"These are two quality teams playing for the title. The game will be won and lost on the smallest of details - it will come down to a refereeing decision, an injury or an interception.
"It's true that this week in the league we got the minimum we were looking for - two wins and two bonus points make our position a little more secure in the Top 16 but we still made a few errors, particularly in the win over Castres Olympique. "There were a few knock-ons and we were having problems with some of our set pieces. Obviously I hope these things will have been sorted by Sunday's final.
"It was great to see players back in the team on Saturday who have been out with injuries.
"Fabien Pelous and Jean Bouilhou in particular were able to put in strong performances and don't seem to have had any problems. We brought a lot of players off once we'd secured the bonus point - including myself - in order to keep us as fresh as possible for the weekend.
"Fred Michalak came off because of some bother with an old Achilles tendon injury but I think he will be available for the final."
It has been a hectic time for both the Heineken Cup finalists as they have had to keep pace with their Top 16 commitments as well as prepare for the northern hemisphere's showpiece club occasion.
"We decided to take a risk letting our A team play against Agen mid-week," said Elissalde.
"With three games in a week and then the Heineken Cup final eight days later, it was hugely important to try and avoid getting too tired this week.
"Clearly we would have preferred to have gone to Agen with a full strength side and looked for a win away from home but we have to prioritise.
"It was also a great opportunity for our A team and they really stepped up to the plate for the game."
And hooker Yannick Bru is hoping for a very special 32nd birthday present - a second Heineken Cup winners' medal.
The French international front row man has already picked up an ERC Elite Award this season for reaching 50 games in the Heineken Cup, but the perfect gift would be a second title in what will be his third final in successive seasons.
