Toulouse and AS Monaco each took a share of the spoils after a six-goal thriller.
Leonardo Jardim opted for continuity for this trip to Toulouse, with just one change from the eleven who started against Dijon, Rony Lopes coming in for Diakhaby. The visitors dominated the opening stages and the Portuguese winger took advantage of good work from Baldé to open the scoring (8’) with his fourth goal in his last six appearances in Ligue 1. The rest of the first-half mostly saw Toulouse on top, with chances for Yagi and Sanogo, but it was Sangaré who leveled matters by side-footing past Subasic from close range (24’) to make it 1-1 at the break.
The second half started the same way as the first, with Rony Lopes repeating his earlier feat to bag his second of the game after Jovetic had hit the post (47’). The introduction of Ghezzal for Tielemans at half-time had beefed up Monaco’s right flank, and it was from there that the second goal was created. The Algerian then set up Stevan Jovetic for the third Monegasque goal (72’). The home side were up against it, but showed grit and determination to haul themselves level, with a penalty from Delort (76’) and the equalizer from Sanogo (87’).
An eventful game ended with the two sides sharing the points (3-3). The Red & Whites’ next opponents are Bordeaux, who visit the Louis-II on Friday 2 March.
