Nice drop two points in Ligue 1 title challenge at Toulouse

Nice's slim Ligue 1 title hopes suffered a blow after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Toulouse.

Lucien Favre's side extended their unbeaten run to 11 games but are now six points behind leaders Paris St Germain, who they host next Sunday.

Corentin Jean's opener was quickly cancelled out by Nice's Valentin Eysseric as the visitors remain third in the table.

They must win against PSG to ensure they keep in the title hunt although second-placed Monaco are only three points behind the leaders with two games in hand.

Vincent Koziello went close after 31 minutes while Ricardo Pereira and Mickael Le Bihan were off target in the first half.

Mid-table Toulouse had only lost two of their previous 11 outings - winning three - and took the lead after 56 minutes when Jean drilled in low.

But Eysseric levelled three minutes later when he fired into the top corner - although Nice could not find a second.

Jean Seri fired a free-kick wide with 12 minutes left and Mario Balotelli twice went close towards the end, with his injury-time strike saved by Alban Lafont.
