Toulouse:

An injury time equaliser from substitute Jean Louis Akpa Akpro saved a point for ten man Toulouse in their home game against Nancy in the French Ligue-1 on Sunday. The 2-2 draw means that Nancy miss the chance to go second in the table, they are up to fourth, whilst Toulouse stay 10th. The visitors were looking for the win that would take them second in the table. But the home side took the lead in the 12th minute. Fode Mansare set up Fabinho, whose shot was saved by goalkeeper Olivier Sorin, but Laurent Batlles put the rebound into the net. Nancy's best chance of the first half came just a minute before the break, when Benjamin Gavanon's free-kick hit the post. Both teams struggled to create chances in the hot conditions, but Nancy equalised nine minutes into the second half. Strong run Brazilian striker Kim, who had come on as a substitute at half-time, made a strong run forward and beat goalkeeper Nicolas Douchez with a shot from outside the area. Batlles was sent off three minutes later for a high tackle on Pape Diakhate. With Toulouse down to ten men, Nancy pushed forward and went ahead on 64 minutes when Gaston Curbelo finished from close range after Toulouse failed to clear a free-kick. Nancy held on to their lead until the 93rd minute. The visitors gave the ball away in midfield and substitute Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro scored a dramatic equaliser. (AP)
