Football: High-flying St Etienne felled by Toulouse
PARIS (AFP) - Toulouse inflicted a 2-1 come-from-behind defeat on high-flying Saint Etienne on Friday, the first win of their campaign at the sixth attempt lifting them out of the relegation zone.
League Cup holders St Etienne turned up at the Pyrenean city on a high with victory assuring them of the Ligue 1 lead, at least until big-spending Monaco's visit to champions Paris Saint Germain on Sunday.
And Les Verts, out of the Europa League, began promisingly, with Romain Hamouma capitalising on a mistake from Toulouse goalkeeper Ali Ahamada to put the visitors into an 18th minute lead.
This was the 26-year-old's third goal of the season.
