A success at home against ASM Clermont-Auvergne (13-9) and a draw over to the Welsh Scarlets (26-26). Racingmen will step back on the TOP 14 track with a certain confidence and a high team spirit, this to receive Stade Français on Saturday (8.35pm) at the Stade de France for the francilian derby.
As the number of years that seperates the first French championship title of the history of rugby won by Racing which were confronted to Stade Français in 1892 (4-3) and this week-end's confrontation at the Stade de France. On this mythical field, Ciel et Blanc and Parisians will play each other in what remains the oldest French derby in championship, of all sports.
