BT Sport subscribers can look forward to another bumper weekend of European rugby union action, with a number of UK sides in action.

Five live matches will be shown from the fourth round of European Rugby Champions Cup pool games, including three on Saturday December 13th.

The action gets underway with a Friday night (December 12th) clash between Bath and Montpellier at the Rec (kick-off 7:45pm).

These two sides are currently third and fourth in Pool 4, meaning defeat for either could put an end to their qualification hopes for the knock-out stage.

Bath are four points behind second-place Glasgow, with Mike Ford's side having claimed their first win in the competition in Montpellier last weekend (30-5).

They need to beat their French opponents for a second time in order to keep pace with Glasgow and try to chase down Toulouse, who currently top the group.

BT Sport viewers have two games to choose from at 3:15pm on Saturday: Northampton Saints v Treviso and RC Toulon v Leicester Tigers.

The first game sees the current Aviva Premiership champions take on Italian opposition in Pool 5, as they look to overtake Racing Métro at the top.

Second-place Northampton are level on points with their French opponents, and three points clear of Ospreys in third.

The Saints claimed maximum points in Italy last week, beating Treviso 38-15.

The other game sees Leicester travel to RC Toulon in Pool 3, as the top two sides lock horns. Leicester are a point behind the French club with eight points, two ahead of Ulster in third and four clear of Scarlets.

The Irish and Welsh sides will be in action on BT Sport at 5:15pm on Sunday December 14th, but not before a Saturday evening clash between Leinster and Harlequins from Pool 2.

Quins currently top of the group, three points clear of their Irish opponents, and know that another win will move them close to a qualification spot.

The London side beat Leinster 24-18 last time out at the Twickenham Stoop.
