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.

The Parisian side ended Leicester's unbeaten record in the competition this season.
