La Rochelle will play in their second Champions Cup final in as many years after Ihaia West scored a late try to break Racing 92’s resistance.
Racing took the lead after a Nolann Le Garrec penalty and a Virimi Vakatawa try, but Gregory Alldritt scored just before halftime to cut the margin.
After the break, La Rochelle were awarded a penalty try, and Racing’s Camille Chat and Cedate Gomes Sa were sin-binned.
La Rochelle won by two points after West scored late in the game.
The La Rochelle fly-half had missed three kicks earlier in the game, but got the final ball to dive over and finish the game with the clock running down.
Ronan O’Gara’s team will meet Leinster in Marseille on May 28 after losing to Toulouse in their first Champions Cup final at Twickenham last season.
