Saracens 38-19 Glasgow, Allianz Park
Scorecard

Saracens have secured a home quarter-final in the ongoing Heineken Champions Cup after they managed to beat Glasgow Warriors 38-19 at Allianz Park on Saturday.

This is their sixth victory from as many games as they finished the opening stage with maximum points in the competition while Glasgow, who also secured a play-off spot will be playing an away fixture in the next round.

As Glasgow were penalised for offside early in the game, Ben Spencer made no mistake as he kicked a fourth minute penalty goal and few minutes later David Strettle offloaded to scrum-half for a converted try as they stretched the lead to 10 points.

The response from Glasgow came by the 10th minute when Sam Johnson breached the defence of Saracens and passed to Stuart Hogg, who in turn sent Tommy Seymour over the line and by the 14th minute Ali Price dotted down to give Glasgow a two point lead.

The momentum once again swung towards the home side when Vincent Koch in the 18th minute rolled over the line following a driving maul but his efforts was cancelled when Ryan Wilson touched down in the 21st minute.

The Sarries though had an edge heading into the break when Billy Vunipola picked up from a scrum to crossover and a conversion from Spencer made the scoreline 24-19 at the end of the first half.

As the Scottish regional side failed to score a single point in the second half, tries from player of the match Maro Itoje and Will Skelton in the final 10 minutes ensured Mark McCall's men completed a 38-19 victory.
