Bristol travel to Paris with a serious chance of making the knock out stages of the Heineken Cup for the first time in their history and will travel with confidence following last weekend&#39;s win against Saracens.

Paris for their part are still not out of this and 10 or 9 points from their remaining games, which certainly isn&#39;t beyond the realms of possibility, could well sneak through and provide one of the top seeds with a headache of a quarter final should some of their injuries clear up.

It&#39;s a hard one to call and could be quite a low scoring affair like a lot of matches so far in this pool.

Paris: 15 Ignacio Corleto, 14 Julien Arias, 13 Stéphane Glas, 12 Mathieu Bastareaud, 11 Christophe Dominici, 10 David Skrela, 9 Alexandre Albouy, 8 Sergio Parisse, 7 Rémy Martin, 6 Pierre Rabadan, 5 Pascal Pape, 4 Boela Du Plooy, 3 Rodrigo Roncero, 2 Dimitri Szarzewski, 1 David Attoub.
Replacements:16 Damien Weber, 17 Franck Montanella, 18 Arnaud Marchois, 19 Mauro Bergamasco, 20 Jérôme Fillol, 21 Lionel Beauxis, 22 Mirco Bergamasco.

Bristol: 15 Luke Arscott, 14 Tom Arscott, 13 Rob Higgitt, 12 Neil Brew, 11 David Lemi, 10 Jason Strange, 9 Brian O&#39;Riordan, 8 Andrew Blowers, 7 Joe El Abd, 6 Matt Salter ©, 5 Sean Hohneck, 4 Roy Winters, 3 Jason Hobson, 2 Mark Regan, 1 Darren Crompton.
Replacements: 16 Scott Linklater, 17 Alex Clarke, 18 Dave Attwood, 19 Alfie To&#39;oala, 20 Redford Pennycook, 21 Graeme Beveridge, 22 David Hill.

A good effort by Bristol but Paris upped a gear in the second half and fully deserved their win IMO.

Thought Stade were really impressive in the second half, could have easily got a couple more tries. Bristol were brave but convincingly outplayed, i think Stade will sneak through with Bristol beating the Blues. That pink shirt is just awesone :D
