Toulouse is almost there. While the rise to Ligue 1 appears to be getting closer to the week, Philippe Montanier’s men can officially validate their return to the top flight this Monday evening, when they receive Niort (8:45 pm) at a stadium , which will once again fill up nicely. After the defeat of Paris FC (2–1 at Bastia), the victories of Sochaux (1–0 at Pau) and Ajaccio (0–0 at Valenciennes) and AJ Auxerre (1–1 at Cannes), TFC left it two years. The latter needed only a win against Chamo to return to Ligue 1.

With three additional points, Toulouse would have 76 points with three rounds left, eleven more than AJA, third, and could no longer finish the first two places. After Tuesday’s missed opportunity with a draw at Sochaux, Toulouse could be even closer to a new Ligue 2 title, 19 years after the previous one. During the 36th day, this would be enough to produce a better result than Ajaccio, to validate a new trophy.

The best attack in Ligue 2 (78 goals), TFC will return to the elite after narrowly failing last season. In third place, they failed in the play-offs against Nantes (1–2, 0–1) due to the away goals rule. The double confrontation was marked by great anger from the Haut-Garonne club president Damien Comoli, towards the referee of the return match, following a controversial situation in the Nantes region.
