It's down to the wire now for the five contenders who have been shortlisted for the ultimate individual accolade in northern hemisphere rugby, ERC European Player of the Year 2013.
Clermont booked their place in the last eight with a hard-fought 19-15 success over Ulster Rugby at a packed Stade Marcel Michelin. The two clubs finished on 20 points in Pool 4, and were also level on five match points each from their head-to-head games. In the end, Clermont topped the pool by virtue of scoring two tries to Ulster's one in those head-to-head contests.
Meanwhile, Leinster wrapped up Pool 3 with a convincing 25-3 win against Montpellier at the RDS. Last season's champions had to make do without their playmaker, Jonny Sexton, who was forced out with an injury before kick-off.
The remaining quarter-final qualifiers, as well as the line-up for the last eight, will be revealed when Round 6 concludes with the last series of matches in Pool 2 and in Pool 5.
The draws for the semi-final pairings of the Heineken Cup and the Amlin Challenge Cup will take place at Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday at 17.25 approximately. Both draws will be streamed live on ercrugby.com and broadcast live on Sky Sports and on the Canal Groupe channel, infosports+.
