Waisea Vuidravuwalu crossed the try line twice in the opening half, helping the visitors to a comfortable 20-3 lead at half time.

The home side got back into the match shortly after the restart, being awarded a penalty try following an infringement by Scott LaValla, which earned the flanker a yellow card.

However, the French team continued to dominate the match once they had 15 players on the pitch, with Hugo Bonneval adding two tries in three minutes.

Michael Claassens and Jack Cuthbert added consolation tries for Bath, but the hosts could not overturn Stade Francais's lead.

The result seals Stade Francais a place in the last four, where they will face Toulouse.
