||16 - 10||
CLERMONT 16-10 MUNSTER
80 The scrum goes down...Penalty Clermont! No need for Parra to kick at goal, time is up. Parra kicks it out, it's all over! Clermont win and advance to the Heineken Cup Final! Will they meet Toulon or Saracens? We'll find out tomorrow, and we'll be there. Until then, cheers!
79 Varley overthrows at the line-out! Clermont pounce. James thumps it straight up the middle of the field, deep in to Munster territory. Jones and Laulala run it back. The Clermont defence is up fast. Forward pass...scrum to Clermont.
78 Here comes the maul. Murray breaks off...has he gone too soon. He's isolated. Turnover! James clears.
77 Fofana drops it. You won't hear that often. Munster attack of the back of the next scrum, Clermont are offside. It's just out of O'Gara's range but he finds touch right in the corner. A Munster rolling maul to win it?
73 A bit of kick tennis between James, Jones and Byrne. The Clermont full-back tries a high ball...Murray knocks on in the air. Clermont have a scrum in centre field.
71 Ti'i Paulo's first throw at the line-out is stolen. Felix Jones chases a kick into the corner...the bounce is unkind for Nalaga, a try is on here but no! Jones knocks on as he tries to gather and score. This game is still very much on! Parra can clear after the 5m scrum but the momentum is now with Munster.
69 Nathan Hines tries to imitate Fofana with an offload in midfield but throws it straight at Tommy O'Donnell, who hacks it out.
68 Parra MISSES!!! The gap remains six points.
66 This crunch time now. Clermont have a scrum about 15m out from the Munster line, all the way to the left of the field. The Munster front row goes down. Penalty. Parra will have a shot at goal, it's not an easy one.
64 Regan King makes a break down the touchline but gets smashed by a handful of Munster defenders for his efforts. He's off, and not looking good! Noa Nakaitaci comes on, that's not good news for the Clermont midfield to have a wing at 13.
CONVERSION, O'GARA. 16-10. All of a sudden, Munster are back in his game! Great conversion from ROG.
TRY, MUNSTER, HURLEY!!! 16-8. A wonderful dummy from O'Gara draws the Clermont defence up. He then puts in a perfect grubber behind the defensive for Hurley to sprint onto in-goal and touch down!
59 Julien Bardy goes off with blood running from his nose. Hines secures the line-out. Parra finds touch, but Munster are still in Clermont territory.
57 Zebo does some damage as he makes some ground but he gets smashed by Sivivatu. Clermont have ticked all the boxes on defence this afternoon. A fine kick from ROG bobbles into touch right in the corner. Can POC steal the line-out?
54 ROG finds touch on the Clermont 10m line from a penalty but the line-out is a mess and Clermont come away with it. King is isolated in midfield though and it's turned over to Munster, who are making all their tackles and doing well well on the deck.
52 Munster are under the cosh again. Sivivatu and Fofana are causing all sorts of problems. The Munstermen hold their line on the tryline until Hurley forces a vital turn over. ROG clears and, once again, Munster survive.
50 Munster looking to build in midfield but Downey sends a pass forward. He protests to the ref that he was hit late, but it changes nothing to the direction of his path. Earls hobbles off. Hurley comes on and takes his place on the wing.
PENALTY, CLERMONT, PARRA. 16-3. Donnacha Ryan is penalised for being off his feet and not letting go. Parra hits the target. Clermont now have some breathing space.
45 It didn't take much to put Clermont back on the front foot. They're rumbling forward once again after another run from Fofana takes them deep into Munster territory.
42 James clears after Clermont gather the line-out it. It doesn't go far however and Munster are back on the attack after the next line-out. Great start to the second half from the Irish team. ROG goes for the corner again...but he's overcooked it! We'll come back for the line-out. Momentum lost?
Second Half Here we go for round 2! ROG sends the restart high. James replies and Conor Murray snatches it out the air! ROG sends a wonderful kick into the corner. Clermont under pressure!
CLERMONT 13-3 MUNSTER
40 Munster spend a minute camped on the Clermont line. This is the best chance they've had to score! By some miracle the ball comes out on the Clermont side of a ruck under the sticks. There is no way that was turned over legally...Owens says nothing as Parra clears. That's half time! Clermont have had the upper hand but have failed to build a lead worth of their domination. We'll be back in ten.
39 Cudmore is forced off injured with a shoulder problem. Julien Pierre comes on. Hines gives away a penalty for taking a man out without the ball so the half will end with Munster on the attack.
37 Tommy O'Donnell is a mile offside so Parra aims the ball straight at him looking for the penalty. Nigel Owens doesn't buy it and let's play continue ...to Munster's advantage! The crowd don't like it, and I don't blame them.
35 Clermont put themselves under pressure as first Nalaga and the Sivivatu try - unsuccessfully - to run out of their 22 after a neat box kick from Conor Murray. Sanity prevails in the end and James clears to halfway.
33 The Clermont pack pick and drive their way toward the line. Inch by inch they approach. Just 5 metres short now. Penalty! Kayser penalised for holding on as Sherry does well to stay on his feet and compete for the ball. Munster are still hanging on!
31 Here come Clermont again as Fofana busts clear. Kings takes the offload but runs away from his support so needs to hit the brakes. It comes out to James, who chips into the corner for Nalaga to chase...but Earls gets there first to dot down. Munster breathe again.
28 Munster are let off the hook because the touch judge spots Cudmore using his boot unnecessarily on the deck. He escapes a yellow card, but the penalty for Munster means that ROG can clear.
25 Cudmore steals the line-out! Clermont send it through the hands, camped deep in the Munster 22.
24 A huge scrum from the Clermont pack sets up their back row to pounce on the next ruck and turn possession over. James kicks into the corner to set up a tricky line-out for Munster.
22 We expected the heavy handed stuff to come from Munster but it's Clermont who are dominating the collisions. And Munster are struggling to get out of their own half.
20 A clever jink from Keith Earls sees him evade a gaggle of defenders. It puts Munster on the front foot and ROG finds valuable territory with the boot.
PENALTY, CLERMONT, PARRA. 13-3. There's only one side on the park at the moment. All the momentum is with Clermont.
15 Clermont are driving forward ala Munster in the heyday. A big rolling maul rumbles forward until it is pulled down. Penalty!
PENALTY, CLERMONT, JAMES. 10-3. Munster are under the cosh here as Clermont are finding their groove. James extends the lead from the tee. Ominous signs...
CONVERSION, JAMES. 7-3. Brock James adds the extras with a sweet strike.
TRY, CLERMONT, NALAGA!! 5-3. Classic Clermont try! Nalaga, King and Sivivatu all make power runs to have Munster under pressure on their line. The ball finds Nalaga again, he has three men on his outside but he doesn't need them, he cuts inside and powers over!
PENALTY, MUNSTER, O'GARA. 0-3. Straight down the middle from O'Gara - that'll boost his confidence.
6 Munster maul it up from the line-out. Clermont pull it down though...penalty! ROG lines it up.
4 Solid scrum first up. ROG finds touch. Hines takes the line-out for Clermont. James tests Jones under the high ball...no problems there. Clermont are in from the side at the ruck. ROG finds touch from the penalty.
2 Clermont's first attack sees Fofana pass forward to Sivivatu. That means we'll pack down for the first scrum Munster 10m line.
Kick-Off Here we go! Brock James kicks us off! Paul O'Connell just nails his team-mate Felix Jones! No damage done though as after a bit of kick tennis, O'Gara finds touch.
It's around 12 degrees at the moment. It's cloudy but dry.
History These sides have met on four previous occasions in this competition, with each side securing two wins and all four of these wins coming as home victories. "Home country" advantage will definitely play into the Clermont's hands with a massive contingent of Ultras Vulcans already making a lot of noise in the stadium.
Team News There are three changes to the Clermont side that ran four tries past Toulouse last week. Brock James returns at fly-half to start his first game in over a month in the place of ineligible Mike Delany. One-cap All Black Regan King takes over from injured skiper Aurelie Rougerie while Julien Bardy comes off the bench to fill in for Gerhard Vosloo. David Skrela is not fit so Seru Nakaitaci is on the bench.
Team News Munster have made just one change to the starting line-up that ran out in the quarter-final win over Harlequins. A fit again Keith Earls comes onto the right wing in place of Denis Hurley, who is named on the bench. It's Earls first outing for Munster since the Racing Metro game in January and his first competitive match since the Test against Italy five weeks ago. There are two changes to that bench with John Ryan in for the injured Stephen Archer (wrist) while Donncha O'Callaghan's knee injury sustained against Leinster rules him out, his place going to Billy Holland.
Welcome Hello and welcome to Stade de la Mosson in Montpellier on the French south coast for our coverage of the first Heineken Cup semi-final. Most pundits have Munster as the underdogs...but that's what they said ahead of the quarter-finals when the Irish giants went on to dominate Quins.

We spoke to England captain Chris Robshaw as he reflected on the autumn internationals, looked ahead to next year's tour of New Zealand and also the long-term build-up to the 2015 World Cup.
The Heineken Cup returns in December with another jam-packed weekend of mouth-watering action - and if it is anything like round two, Sky Sports viewers will be in for a treat.
After Dubai I was left to feel frustrated and positive in equal measure. We certainly felt there were a couple of games there that were there for the taking that we should have closed out but we'll learn from those games and take it on to Port Elizabeth.
