Saracens will meet Toulon at Twickenham Stadium in the otehr semi-final. The Heineken Cup semi-finals are played at venues designated by ERC and the clubs who will secure home country advantage in the last four were determined by a draw which was conducted in January following the conclusion of the tournament pool stage.
With the knockout stage of the tournament set to dominate the European rugby landscape when the four quarter-finals are decided this weekend, the road to the 2013 Heineken Cup final at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 18 May is now clearer.
Details of ticket sales for the two high-profile matches will be available on www.ercrugby.com later in the week.
