Bristol, October 17, 2020, 5:45 pm, two teams, one star!
This Saturday, October 17, Racing 92 played its third European final (in 5 years) against the English Exeter. The two teams met on the field of Ashton Gate with the same ambition: to get a first star and complete their rankings.
With a very complicated beginning of the game, Ciel et Blanc got into trouble and ran after the score for 80 minutes. Indiscipline, approximations, Racing 92 takes time to enter this match and the English take advantage of it during 20 minutes to take the lead. When the Franciliens woke up, viewers could watch a final of rare intensity. Eight tries, the teams give it their all and the suspense is there until the last minute. 31 to 27 for the Exeter!
It is a short and sad defeat for Racing 92. For the 3rd time, they fail in the final of the European Cup against an English team. However, THANK YOU to Racing 92 for this course, this determination, this show worthy of the greatest of Europe and these beautiful emotions of the big deadlines!
See you very soon for the European Cup 2020-2021!
All together behind Racing 92
