"Morgan, Rémi, it's okay," Azéma said simply during a press conference ahead of Saturday's clash against reigning champions Saracens in Edinburgh.

Parra, 28, suffered a thigh strain and 27-year-old Lamerat a knee knock in the French club's bruising semifinal win over Irish side Leinster (27-22).

Parra – a veteran of Clermont's two European Cup final defeats – said he trained "week in, week out to experience moments like this. You think about it all the time."

Clermont lost to Top 14 rivals Toulon in 2013 and 2015.

Azema added that the hardest thing in the run-up to the final was to deal with the anticipation and nerves.

"We all know we have to stay measured until Saturday, we need to master the beginning of the week, focus on what we will do on Saturday," he said.

"We've a bit of experience of that. We're going to try and manage this desire to deliver a great match."
