The Toulouse leader experienced his first defeat of the season, beaten at home by Caen 3-2 on Monday, after a crazy match at the end of the 10th day of Ligue 2.
Despite this defeat, the TFC retains its first place with three points ahead of its runner-up Sochaux, held in check by Auxerre (3rd), while his other pursuers lost points on this 10th day, with the defeat of Ajaccio (4th) against Bastia, and that of Paris FC (6th) in Niort.
The Caennais, who are repositioning themselves in 9th place, very quickly found the fault on the leader’s lawn, thanks to a nice uncrossed header from Franklin Wadja on a corner, which left Dupé no chance (1-0, 8th).
Philippe Montanier’s men were quick to react by obtaining a sanction for a hand of Oniangue. Toulouse playing master Branco van den Boomen is responsible for transforming him (1-1, 15th).
Two minutes later, the Dutchman sent a marvelous eccentric free kick into the skylight of Rémy Riou to give the advantage to the Violets (2-1, 17th).
The players of Malherbe, who remained on a frustrating defeat (1-0) against Dijon were able to quickly return to the attack, first by Zady Sery, located the bar (19th), before tumbling right side to send a center Shaving at the far post that Diakite can only send to the bottom of his own net (2-2, 39th).
Faced with Toulouse who had only been led once this season, for six minutes (4-2 victory against Dijon), Stéphane Moulin’s team even took the advantage a second time thanks to Deminguet, well served by Abdi (3-2, 45th + 1).
The TFC pushed without managing to equalize at the end of the match, and will have to start again against Amiens (18th) on Saturday.
