Racing 92 vs Saracens live stream

This European Rugby Champions Cup semi-final begins at 2pm local time in Paris, which means 1pm BST on Saturday, September 26. The great news is that the free-to-air Channel 4 is showing the action live.

Wherever you are, you can access the same coverage you would at home by using a VPN.

While Saracens have been a regular fixture in this tournament's later stages - having made the Heineken Cup final four times in the last ten years - the London-based club's run in the tournament this season has been one of sports big talking points.

Despite suffering the blow of losing 10 players either permanently or on loan during lockdown thanks to financial punishments and relegation for breaching the Premiership's salary-cap, Mark McCall's cobbled-together team have nevertheless somehow managed to find themselves one step away from the European Champions Cup final.

Sarries booked their place in the semis with a result for the ages in Dublin over a Leinster team that were on a 25-game winning sequence fresh from picking up the Pro14 title.

McCall's men now travel to Paris to face another side in rich form. Racing booked their place in the last four with a stunning 27-36 victory over Clermont at the Stade Marcel Michelin last Saturday. The Parisians have won an impressive 10 of their last 11 home games in the European Cup, including seven of eight since moving to their new La Defense super stadium. 

Read on as we explain how to watch Racing 92 vs Saracens online (and for free) and get a Heineken Champions Cup semi-final live stream from wherever you are right now.
