Munster kept their Heineken Cup quarter-final hopes alive with their 26-17 victory over Edinburgh but failed to get the vital bonus point which would have really kept the pressure on Pool leaders Saracens.
Munster are now in a straight dogfight with the English side for qualification after this victory but the Irish province could still qualify as one of the Pool runners up for the knockout stages.
Munster, who won this tournament in 2006 and 2008, host Racing Metro in their final Pool game and have only failed to reach the last eight of European rugby's premier tournament once in the last 14 seasons and that was in 2011.
Saracens know what they have to do in their final game and will be looking to make sure of a place in the last eight of the tournament when they meet bottom placed Edinburgh at Vicarage Road on Sunday.
Edinburgh, who reached last season's semi-finals in the Heineken Cup, managed their first tries in this season's tournament when wing Dougie Fife crossed in the second-half against Munster at Murrayfield.
