Leinster Rugby will face Scarlets Rugby at Aviva Stadium on Saturday, 21st April, at 3.30pm in the semi-finals of the European Rugby Champions Cup, EPCR confirmed this afternoon.
Leinster finished as the top seed from the pool stage and, after defeating Saracens at Aviva Stadium on Easter Sunday, claimed home country advantage for the Champions Cup Semi-Final against the reigning Guinness PRO14 champions.
The 30-19 victory over the reigning European champions at a sold-out Aviva on Easter Sunday was secured with tries from Garry Ringrose, Dan Leavy and James Lowe.
Leinster qualified for the semi-final stage of Europe twice in recent seasons, though both of those games ended in defeat away in France against Clermont Auvergne (April 2017) and Toulon (April 2015).
The last time the province had home country advantage for a European semi-final was against Toulouse back in April 2011.
