A win for Exeter Chiefs against La Rochelle will be enough to secure the English side a home quarterfinal.

This match comes after Exeter managed to pick up all five points against La Rochelle on the road in Round One and wrapped up the Pool with a 31-all draw at Glasgow last weekend.

Exeter has won their last three home games in the Champions Cup, their best run since managing that feat in 2015/16.
