Edinburgh produced a stunning victory over Montpellier to earn a home quarter-final in the Champions Cup.

Richard Cockerill’s side topped Pool Five after a win that also guaranteed Glasgow a place in the last eight.

Jaco van der Walt put Edinburgh 9-0 up at Murrayfield before Jacques du Plessis’ try narrowed the gap.

The boot of Ruan Pienaar briefly had Montpellier in front.
But a further Van der Walt penalty and Darcy Graham’s try secured the win.

For the first time ever both Scottish sides are through to the quarter-finals.
With Glasgow now sure of a place at least as one of the best three runners-up.
