Toulouse have been dealt a blow ahead of their round-of-16 clash against Heineken Champions Cup against Munster after French international Sofiane Guitoune sidelined with an anterior cruciate ligament tear to his knee.

The 32-year-old suffered the injury during the recently concluded Top 14 game against Montpellier at Stade Ernest-Wallon which Toulouse went on to lose 16-29.

Guitoune, who has played nine Tests for France recently only returned to action after spending two months on the sidelines due to another injury.

Pierre Fouyssac is out with a tendon issue while Lucas Tauzin and Arthur Bonneval are also nursing injuries.
