  2. Saracens did enough

    The breakdown has been a real tussle, the gain-line has been a fantastic battle, but Saracens have just done enough. They've just had 2 or 3% more when it comes to the destruction they can cause with their carry.

    They created one five-phase attack that ultimately led to Michael Rhodes' run-in, but outside that it's been such an even contest. Saracens have done exactly what they've had to do to get over the line.

  3. 'Glasgow must show more composure'

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie on Sportsound: "I really rate all the effort. You can't fault the attitude.

    "We just need to show a lot more composure with the ball in hand.

    "We're trying to pull out the miracle play. That's the disappointing factor, turnover ball at critical times."

  5. Glasgow 'didn't take chances'

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Glasgow Warriors replacement Peter Horne on Sportsound: "We can't fault our effort and enthusiasm. Physically, we did really, really well.

    "We just didn't take our chances. They take their chance, scoring that one try. You've got to take your chances."

  6. 'They made us work for it'

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Saracens' Maro Itoje was named man of the match. He told BT Sport: "It was a tough game, we knew Glasgow are a good side and they made us work for it - as you can see because my nose is bleeding!

    "It wasn't easy but we're happy with this win on the road. We showed our mentality to keep fighting to the end. We showed the resilience we've got."

  7. Too many errors

    FT: Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Rory Lawson

    Former Scotland captain on BBC Radio 5 live

    Glasgow have had a lot of good stuff but they've just made too many errors at crucial moments, either inside the Saracens 22 or with the two breaks in the second, with offloads to nothing off the back of it, which gave Saracens the chance to absorb the pressure and get the release.

  8. 'Glasgow will learn from loss'

    We'll be in a better place next week because of this. It's getting back to the drawing board, learning from our mistakes.

    Nothing comes easy in this competition. The boys will recover well, analyse where we can get better and get excited again for next Sunday against Cardiff Blues.

  9. Glasgow have almost played to their max

    They'll be very disappointed with the result but I think Glasgow have almost played to the maximum of their potential. They've had so much good play.

  10. Full-time - Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Alex Goode knocks the ball out and Saracens have an opening victory in Champions Cup Pool 3.

    Glasgow fought hard but came up short against the English champions, who move on to seven wins out of seven in all competitions.

  11. Disallowed try

    Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Rory Hughes touches down following a forward pass and he knows it will not count as play is brought back for a Saracens scrum. All the visitors need to do is get this ball out and victory is assured.

    Rory Lawson

    Former Scotland captain on BBC Radio 5 live

    There's a lot of edge in this game, it's been bubbling up all afternoon and there's a fair bit of niggle.

    Glasgow have had the lion's share of the last 20 minutes and they really are starting to create some opportunities. They've been one or two passes away from scoring a try against Saracens, but time is running out and they must get something going now with the deficit still at 10 points.

  15. Post update

    Glasgow Warriors 3-13 Saracens

    Glasgow are repelled back to halfway and their lineout leads to an advance on the left. The ball comes back right and then Huw Jones is penalised for not releasing. It's been a frustrating day for the hosts.
