Ahead of this weekend’s decisive matches in the Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 2nd leg – here is a reminder of the extra time protocol.
If the aggregate scores are tied at full time in a Heineken Champions Cup 2nd leg match, then 20 minutes (two periods of 10 minutes) of extra time will be played.
If at the end of extra time the aggregate scores are still level in a Heineken Champions Cup 2nd leg match, then the winner will be the club that has scored the most tries in both legs of the Round of 16 (including extra time).
If the teams are still level on points and on tries at the end of extra time, then the winners will be determined by a placekick competition.
Also, see below for a reminder of the quarter-final permutations.
