How do Munster get to the next round?

Should Munster come away from France with zero points - assuming Montpellier defeat London Irish at home - Clermont Auvergne would still have to upset the Stormers in South Africa, while Sale Sharks would have to come away from Ravenhill with a win. Judging by Ulster's resurgent performance against La Rochelle yesterday, they will be favourites to overcome the Premiership side in Belfast.

A loss for either Sale or Clermont will guarantee Munster's progression, while a losing bonus point or try bonus point would mean that Sale would have to defeat Ulster with four tries and make up the points difference.

Two points for Munster - through a draw or two bonus points - will guarantee them a passage to the next round, regardless of other results.
