Tyler Bleyendaal kicking the difference for Munster against Toulouse

• Munster 41-16 Toulouse
• Bleyendaal scores 21 points as Munster reach Champions Cup semi-finals

Munster started and finished strongly to set up a 41-16 win over Toulouse at Thomond Park and a place in the Champions Cup semi-finals for the first time in three years. Paul Perez’s controversially-awarded try breathed new life into Toulouse’s challenge at 24-16 down – but closing tries from Darren Sweetnam, his first in Europe, and the replacement Andrew Conway sent them through in convincing fashion.

Munster were 10 points up in as many minutes, profiting from Francois Cros’ early sin-binning as prop and man-of-the-match John Ryan muscled over for a try. Jean-Marc Doussain’s third penalty success – from all of 44 metres – brought wind-backed Toulouse to within four points at the break.

Memphis Depay is back in the goals and fuelling Lyon’s grand ambitions

Memphis Depay struggled at Manchester United but he has found form since signing for Lyon and scored the ‘goal of his life’ against Toulouse on Sunday

By Adam White and Eric Devin for Get French Football News

Receiving a short pass from Jordan Ferri in the centre-circle, Memphis Depay swivelled and, almost in the same motion, launched a shot towards Alban Lafont in the Toulouse goal. The Lyon winger had shown good vision to catch the teenager off his line but shooting from more than 50 yards out was ambitious to say the least. The ball looped over Lafont’s head and dropped into the back of the net, giving Depay his second brace in his last three league matches.

In what could have been a tricky match between two legs of their Europa League tie with Roma, Depay’s two goals were vital. Video clips of the goal immediately filled social media feeds as news outlets stumbled over themselves to publicise the sumptuous strike. Almost as quickly, though, the caveats began to emerge, largely from Manchester United fans who were disgruntled that Depay had never produced anything as spectacular in England.
