An enormous kicking display by Racing 92 skipper Maxime Machenaud, including two penalties in the closing four minutes, snatched victory from Munster to leave Pool 4 in the Champions Cup wide open.

Defeat at the death in the first Champions Cup game at the new indoor U Arena means Munster lead Pool 4 by a single point from Racing going into the final round of matches. They went for the points instead and only picked up four points for the win instead of a possible five.

Munster lost out 34-30 to Racing 92 yesterday in the fifth round of the Champions Cup played at the U Arena in Paris. Racing 92 travel to Leicester Tigers and must better Munster's result or face the perils of the best runners-up calculator. "He brings a lot of experience to us, because we have a lot of talent in the team but not a lot of experience, we are learning", said Nyanga, which seemed rather at odds with his and his team's age and caps profile.

The sides exchanged tries in the first half through Yannick Nyanga and Jean Kleyn, with Machenaud's boot the difference as the hosts led 13-7 at the interval.

Two Keatley penalties edged Munster back in front before replacement hooker Dimitri Szarzewski raced around the front of a line-out 20 metres out to score a try that Machenaud improved to make it 28-27.

Marc Andreu squeezed over in the corner for Racing's second try but Keith Earls' balletic footwork saw him brilliantly reduce arrears to 18-14. Machenaud made it 31-30 before knocking over the final kick two minutes from time to make victory safe.

The Red Army are set to entertain Castres this Sunday at 1pm in Thomond Park, in a game where a winning bonus point is a must for Johann van Graan's side. "We are right in this competition and hopefully, we can get a home quarter-final", said Van Graan.

"When you have a player like Donnacha, he's a huge addition to the team and if he wasn't here I don't know if we would have won the game".

"He's a fantastic guy, a Munster guy, a world-class player".

"We started very well, but you know the way the Munster guys are, they play with real heart and they came back at us in the second half", said Ryan.

Donnacha Ryan was not afraid to admit that it had been "weird" lining out against Munster for this afternoon's Champions Cup tie. "We'll take the point though".
