France fly-half Matthieu Jalibert kicked the winning penalty for Bordeaux-Begles in the quarter-final

Bordeaux-Begles recorded no new positive Covid-19 tests ahead of this weekend's European Champions Cup semi-final against Toulouse, after having their two previous league games postponed, a club source told AFP on Tuesday.

Bordeaux's last two Top 14 matches were moved following eight cases of the virus in their squad, but Christophe Urios' side are hoping to be able to face joint-record four-time winners Toulouse on Saturday.

"For now, it's good," the source said.

Bordeaux, who are making their first appearance in the last four, will also undergo tests on Wednesday and Friday.

According to Champions Cup rules, a team will forfeit the game if they have one or more positive results from testing three days prior to kick-off.
