When the two teams met earlier in the season in Perpignan the home side ran in five tries in a stunning 34-20 victory at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona. Can Perpignan conjure up a similar storm with which to blow away Toulouse for a second time?
Toulouse conceded so many penalties in Paris that Racing kicked seven penalties, so James Hook's goalkicking will be vital for Perpignan. After that it will be a question of who gets on top up front.
- Perpignan are just 12 points shy of totalling 1,000 points in this competition. They have scored 988 in 32 matches to date - an average of 31 per game.
- Louis Picamoles offloaded the ball on 14 occasions in the Heineken Cup pool stage this season. Only ASM Clermont Auvergne's Aurelien Rougerie (16) produced more.
- Toulouse are unbeaten against French opponents in European competition. They have won eight and drawn one in the Heineken Cup, though were knocked out of the 1997/98 tournament by Brive who had a superior try count after a 22-22 draw.
- The only previous meeting between the clubs in Europe was in the 2003 Heineken Cup final when Toulouse edged out USAP 22-17.
- Adrien Planté sits joint-top of the try-scoring charts with six in five appearances in this tournament this season.
