Munster’s slim hopes of progressing in the European Champions Cup suffered a blow after a 39-22 defeat by Racing 92.
Andrew Conway’s superb intercept try cancelled out Teddy Thomas’ opener to give Munster the lead at the break.
After a tense 70 minutes, late tries from Thomas, Virimi Vakatawa and Juan Imhoff secured Racing’s spot in the quarter-finals.
Munster need a bonus-point win and results to go their way in the final Pool games if they are to progress.

The early stages of the game were firmly in Munster’s favour, with JJ Hanrahan kicking three penalties in the opening 17 minutes.
Teddy Iribaren got the hosts on the board after Jean Kleyn was pinged by Wayne Barnes at the breakdown.
The hosts began to exert some pressure as the half grew on, with Finn Russell chopped down by Peter O’Mahony when he looked set to score.
Racing did cross the line on the half-hour mark when Thomas was afforded far too much time and space, with the winger driving over after some superb play by Iribaren.
