Stade Francais earned a bonus point win over Leicester Tigers to join them in the Champions Cup quarter-finals.
The Tigers, who finished top of Pool Four, secured a home tie in the last eight and will now have Stade join them as one of three best runners-up.
Manu Tuilagi, who made only his second start in 15 months, gave Leicester the lead with his try in the first half.
However the hosts ran in 26 unanswered points to earn the bonus point.
Dom Barrow and Harry Thacker secured tries giving hope to the Tigers but Stade added a late fifth through Geoffrey Doumayrou.

Ed Slater's hopes of being involved in England's RBS 6 Nations campaign have been dashed by a knee injury that has ruled him out for up to two months.
The Leicester captain, who can play in the second and back rows, sustained medial ligament damage when making a tackle during the first half of Saturday's Aviva Premiership defeat at Saracens.
While the Tigers are confident Slater will not need surgery, he will miss at least half of the Six Nations, and given his fringe positioning, the injury will deny him the opportunity to impress new England head coach Eddie Jones.
