Munster's dream of a third European trophy is alive and well, but they'll have to muscle past defending champions Toulouse if they want to progress to the semi-finals. Johann van Graan’s side go into the biggest match of their season on the back of a three-game winning streak, having beaten Exeter Chiefs, Ulster and Cardiff in recent weeks. Can they extend that run and put Toulouse to the sword this Saturday?
It won't be easy. The French superstars have no fewer than ten 2022 Grand Slam winners among their ranks, and an excellent away record when it comes to Irish teams. Indeed, Ugo Mola's men beat Munster 40-33 at Thomond Park in last year's round of 16, en route to winning a record-breaking fifth Heineken Cup. The team is firing well at home too, having just beaten La Rochelle in France's Top 14 league.
Can local heroes Munster take an early lead against the Toulouse? Or will they come unstuck at the Aviva? Make sure you know to watch a Munster vs Toulouse live stream from where you are.

Watch a Munster vs Toulouse live stream from abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Munster vs Toulouse rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.
There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money back guarantee with its VPN service. You can use it to watch on your mobile, tablet, laptop, TV, games console and more. There's 24/7 customer support and three months free when you sign-up. Try it – you'll be surprised how simple it is.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple:
1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is the one we recommend.
2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access. For Champions Cup rugby, you may wish to choose 'USA' for Peacock, or 'Australia' for Kayo Sports.
3. Then head over to Peacock (opens in new tab) or Kayo Sports on your browser or device and enjoy the Munster vs Toulouse live stream.

European Rugby Champions Cup match facts
Qualification for the pool stage of the 2021/22 Heineken Champions Cup depends on a club's final position in their respective national/regional league. The only other way to qualify is by winning the second-tier Challenge Cup, as Montpellier did when they beat Leicester Tigers in May of this 2021.
The first ever Champions Cup winners were French side Toulouse, who defeated Cardiff 21-18 in a tightly contested final at Arms Park, Wales, in front of 21,800 spectators.
Toulouse have won the Champions Cup a record five times and reached the final a record seven times. Leinster have won four, while Saracens and Toulon have won three each.
The tournament was called the Heineken Cup between 1995 and 2014, before its name was changed to the European Rugby Champions Cup. Dutch beer giant Heineken returned as the main sponsor for 2018/19, signing a four year deal to rename the event the Heineken Champions Cup.
