  1. Bye!

    That's all from Allianz Park. If you missed any of the action in that rollercoaster match you can read the report here.

    If you've somehow managed to miss the news of their Premiership relegation, that's here.

    And chief sports writer Tom Fordyce's take on it all is here.

    FT: Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    That meant a lot to the Saracens players.

    They were down to 14 men for the whole of the second half, with Billy Vunipola off early with a suspected broken forearm. But somehow they still managed to win. Extraordinary scenes at Allianz Park.

    Saracens players celebrate
  4. What that means for qualification

    FT: Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    So to clarify: Saracens are in the eighth qualification spot after that win. Gloucester could still replace them if they beat Toulouse with a bonus point or beat them by 12 points or more.

    That result also means Northampton Saints' place in the quarter-finals is guaranteed and puts Glasgow out of the competition.

  5. 'We had to do our talking on the pitch'

    FT: Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    Saracens flanker Ben Earl said on BT Sport:

    "That second 40 is everything this club is about. There have been a few obstacles this season but we knew we had to do our talking on the pitch today.

    "The experienced heads in the changing room spoke a lot about our plan and it was about the rest of us putting it into practise.

    "With what's gone on this week our focus shifts to Europe. We're going after that now and we know we're going to be a tough team to beat."

    What Gloucester are now being asked to do in Toulouse is bordering on a miracle. To overtake Saracens they need to win with a bonus point or win by 13.

  7. Full-time

    Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    Richard Wigglesworth kicks to touch and Saracens players erupt in celebration, then immediately form a huddle.

    What a day for them. Racing threw everything at them. Billy Vunipola left the pitch injured, Will Skelton was sent off. But Sarries still managed to get the win and keep their season alive.

  8. Post update

    Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    Francois Trinh-Duc sends a pass left, but it is dropped and Saracens regain possession.

  9. Post update

    Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    Racing 92 make it into Saracens half. Could a drop-goal be on the cards?

    Less than one minute remaining.

  10. Post update

    Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    Racing have possession but there are less than two minutes left and they're inside their own half.

  11. Post update

    Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    As things stand, Saracens will be through to the quarter-finals as long as Gloucester don't beat Toulouse later this afternoon.

  12. Penalty - Saracens 27-24 Racing 92

    Owen Farrell

    It's an easy kick from in front of the stick and Sarries are ahead with four minutes left.

  13. Post update

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    Saracens get a penalty anyway because Racing were offside earlier in the play.

    Owen Farrell tells Nigel Owen he thinks they scored the try three times, before going for three points and the lead.

  14. Farrell thinks it's a try!

    Owen Farrell celebrated like it was a try! He jumped over a player, punched the air and has gone about two metres into the air!

  15. No try

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    Nigel Owens says Duncan Taylor is offside, so no try.

  16. Post update

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    You can see the ball over the line, but it's unclear how it got there.

  17. Post update

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    The replay shows Jamie George coming up short, then Owen Farrell celebrating anyway.

    Onto the next phase to check Duncan Taylor's grounding...

  18. Post update

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    Nigel Owens has asked the TMO to take a look at it. Duncan Taylor might have made it over, but there were so many bodies on the floor it's hard to tell.

  19. Post update

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    Owen Farrell jumps through in celebration, punching the air, but Nigel Owens hasn't given a try.

  20. Post update

    Saracens 24-24 Racing 92

    Saracens are centimetres from the tryline now.
