ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Only three points separate the three sides in Pool 4 and the battle to see who qualifies for the last eight of the tournament promises to go down right to the wire and the final weekend of the Pool stages.
The Top 14 side will be wary of Aironi, who haven't won a game in this season's Pool so far, and their ability to cause a major upset whenever the Italians play on home soil.
Aironi, who are only in their second season in the Heineken Cup, famously beat Biarritz Olympique last season and recorded their first competitive victory as a franchise.
