Free rugby tips, best bets and analysis for Sunday’s European Champions Cup matches.

Sell ​​at Ospreys

Where to watch

BT Sport 2, 1pm Sunday

Best guess

Sale -20
1pt 10-11 bet365, Paddy Power

Match example

Ospreys have held their own in the United Rugby Championship this season, but they have had a much harder time in Europe.

Defeats in their first three games against Sale, Glasgow and Racing 92 have ensured that the Welsh outfit is rooted in the bottom of Pool A.

After already winning 21-13 at Liberty Stadium in December, Sale can be expected to win by a larger margin on Sunday in the comfort of home at AJ Bell Stadium.

Stade Francais v Connacht

Where to watch

BT Sport 3, 1pm Sunday

Best guess

1pt 13-8 BoyleSports

Match example

Connacht fell just short against Premiership leaders Leicester and could well have a chance to shock Stade Francais in the French capital.

Irish fly-half Jack Carty will helm the squad and should be key for a Connacht side who have already secured their place in the knockout stage of the Champions Cup for the first time after Toulouse’s match against Cardiff was canceled .

After losing their last two games to Castres and Bristol, Stade looks likely to have a third loss in a row.

Munster v Wasps

Where to watch

BT Sport 2, 3.15pm Sunday

Best guess

Munster -11
1pt 10-11 bet365

Match example

Munster were in excellent form for their visit from Wasps and it’s hard to imagine anything other than a convincing home win.

The Red Army has a five-game winning streak and they have found a way to get victories in close encounters. Munster has won by six points or less in each of their last four games, showing how calm they are in pressure moments.

Munster defeated Wasps 35-14 in Coventry last month and there may be a similar gap between the games at Thomond Park.

Montpellier v Exeter Chiefs

Where to watch

BT Sport 2, 5.30pm Sunday

Best guess

Exeter -6
1pt Evens Paddy Power

Match example

In the final game of the weekend, Exeter will take its chance to double over Montpellier in the Champions Cup this season.

Chiefs full-back Stuart Hogg has been back in shape in recent weeks, which will come as welcome news for Scottish head coach Gregor Townsend ahead of the Six Nations next month.

With a talented backline that also includes England internationals Jack Nowell and Henry Slade, Exeter can confirm the form from last month’s 42-6 defeat of the Top 14 outfit at Sandy Park.
