Through Thibaut Calatayud
the Toulouse FC is no longer undefeated in the league. On their lawn, Monday, September 27, 2021, the men of Philippe Montanier conceded their first loss of the season by losing 2-3 against the Stade Malherbe de Caen.
With this result, the Violets remain leaders but miss the opportunity to widen the gap in the lead. For his part, the evening opponent leaves the 11e place for the first part of the table (9e).
Entrance air-conditioned Toulousains
Even if the result is not at the rendezvous for lovers of Téfécé, this match will have had the merit of being spectacular. Especially in the first half where the five goals of the game were scored.
From the 8e minute, Franklin wajda opens the brand for visitors by taking up a corner of Jessy deminguet and taking advantage of a lax marking of the purple tusk. Entry hard for the Violets.
A crazy first half
But the teammates of Maxime Dupé did not have time to doubt. The referee of the evening, Bartolomeu Varela, whistles a logical penalty for the Violets. Branco van den Boomen does not need to be prayed for and is transformed perfectly. Everywhere within a quarter of an hour of play.
It’s the start of a crazy match. Two minutes after the equalizer, Branco van den Boomen did it again with a marvelous free kick in the opposite corner. The Norman goalkeeper can do nothing, it’s 2-1 for Toulouse.
Caen regains the advantage just before the break
Caen reacts immediately but the strike of Caleb Zady Series comes crashing into the bar of Maxime Dupé (19e, 2-1).
Toulouse controls but Caen plays well the shots against. Zady Sery, again, spins on his right side and takes the best of a Issiaga Sylla much too passive. The number 10 Caen crosses strong in front of the corn and Bafodé Diakité can’t do better than tackle the ball in its own net (2-2, 39e).
In additional time for the first half, Jessy deminguet give back the advantage to Caen. Alone in the area, he transforms a love of pass in withdrawal from the right side Ali Abdi. That’s 2-3 for visitors at the break.
First loss of the season
In the second half, Toulouse will have tried everything but came up against Caennais well in place who were content to counter, play the clock and fall on the slightest contacts whistled by Mr. Varela, author of a performance enough … curious!
Mikkel desler, very active throughout the game on his left side, and Rhys Healey were not enough. Except Naatan Skyttä, less entrants (Nathan Ngoumou and Mamady Bangré) were not satisfied enough tonight. Toulouse therefore lost 2 goals to 3 and met the end of its unbeaten streak in the league.
Taton Corner Tribute Series
Throughout the meeting, the partners ofTeen Onaiwu were able to count on a great atmosphere. The Indians are making their voices heard.
The ultras have also multiplied tributes throughout the match. Before the kick-off, a first banner was deployed for Lucas Mazur, supporter of the Violets and Paralympic badminton champion in Tokyo, came to give the fictitious start of the meeting.
This evening, we welcome the disabled athletes from Toulouse to the Stadium. # Tokyo2020 ??

A thought for Clément and the victims of AZF
During the meeting, the Indians also had a thought for Clément, a young supporter of theOlympic Marseille and member of the ultra group of Fanatics, died returning from the match between Angers and OM, Wednesday September 22. A “RIP Clément” banner was released during the first period.
Finally, the Ultras commemorated the 20 years of the AZF disaster with a new banner: “09-21, 10:17 am, We don’t forget”. As a reminder, the explosion of the chemical plant had caused the death of 31 people and thousands of injured.
It was a great evening on and off the pitch. It could have been even more so with the three points… Too bad!
Next meeting of the Violets, this Saturday, October 2, on the lawn ofAmiens (18e).
