Philippe Montanier, Toulouse coach, will be able to watch the confrontation between Paris FC (3rd) and AC Ajaccio (2nd) quietly on Monday (8:45 p.m.). This Saturday, his team did not fail to react, a week after the elimination in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France at the Stadium, against Versailles (N2, 0-1). The victory against Dijon (4-1) consolidates Téfécé in first place in the standings, thus putting pressure on its competitors.
Deprived of their flagship striker (13 goals on the clock), Rhys Healey, suspended, the Toulouse were able to count on another metronome in the person of Branco Van den Boomen. In a game that started out flat, he was on the pass for the opener with a cross on the head of Nathan N’Goumou (1-0, 24th).
He was going to do it again from a corner to find the skull of Rasmus Nicolaisen (2-1, 44th), while Dijon had equalized on a good movement concluded by Scheidler (1-1, 33rd). A 13th decisive pass this season which underlines his enormous influence in the Toulouse course. He was still in the pass, this time for Ado Onaiwu, and the Japanese striker shifted Rafael Ratao for Toulouse’s third goal (65th).
Dijon, which should certainly have obtained a penalty at the very start of the game, for an obstruction by Nicolaisen on Scheidler (3rd), was in pain and did not have the weapons to bother the Toulouse block any more. After wasting a great opportunity, Ado Onaiwu, launched by Mikkel Desler, still very active, increased the score (4-1, 81st). With this great success, Toulouse also increased its goal difference (+ 29).
