Exeter vs Toulouse cheat sheet
The Chiefs have won five of their last six games against Top 14 opposition, but must now face a French side currently enjoying a seven-game winning streak in the competition.
While these are heady heights for Exeter, their opponents on Saturday have made 12 appearance in the semi-finals and six in the final (a record). Toulouse waltzed past Ulster 36-8 in the quarter-finals while the Chiefs notched up an equally commanding 38-15 win over Northampton to get to the last four.
Exeter’s man-of-the-match in that game was Jacques Vermeulen who is set to miss through injury, with Scotland international Sam Skinner set to step in to the back row.
Toulouse meanwhile are set to go with the same backline that dominated proceedings against Ulster with Antoine Dupont and Romain Ntamack maintaining their half-back partnership.
