Champions Cup: Leinster’s Unbelievable Aviva Stadium Win Stats ahead of La Rochelle Clash

The 2022/23 Heineken Champions Cup Final takes place this Saturday, as Leinster play hosts to La Rochelle at the Aviva Stadium. Leinster have an unbelievable win rate at the Dublin stadium, as since the Aviva opened in 2010, Leinster have won 40 out of 46 matches in the ground.

Leinster have made the Aviva Stadium into a second home, after the RDS Arena. This staggering success equivalates to an 86.96% win rate at the formerly known Lansdowne Road. Research by Boylesports about rugby betting tips has concluded Leinster have won 23 out of a possible 27 games in the European Champions Cup, losing only once in the knockout stages.

Including the United Rugby Championship loss to rivals Munster on Saturday, Leinster have tasted defeat just six times at the Aviva. Munster are the only side to have beaten the Dubliners twice at the Aviva Stadium, as they also secured a win in October 2014.

The remaining Leinster losses have all come in the Champions Cup, with Pool Stage defeats to Clermont, Northampton and Toulon between 2012-13 and 2015-16, and the quarter-final loss to Saracens in 2020. However, La Rochelle are never a side to rule out, as they came away victorious from their last encounter with Leinster, in the 2021/22 Champions Cup Final.

Leinster are seeking revenge for last year’s devastating defeat in Marseille, which saw a last-minute try from Arthur Retiere snatch the title from the Dubliner’s hands. The winger’s try in the matches’ closing seconds secured a last-ditch lead for Ronan O’Gara’s men, before Ihaia West’s conversion confirmed a long-awaited first Champions Cup trophy.
