Result: Toulouse 0-1 Montpellier

Montpellier take a step closer to the Ligue 1 title with a 1-0 win at Toulouse.

Montpellier have taken a step closer to the Ligue 1 title with a 1-0 win at Toulouse.

The only goal of the game came after three minutes when Younes Belhanda collected Henri Bedimo's pass before he fired into the bottom corner.

The visitors had the chance to double their lead from the penalty spot on the hour, but Olivier Giroud's kick was saved by Ali Ahamada after Franck Tabanou had handled in the area.

The win has left Rene Girard's side five points clear at the top of the table, but Paris Saint-Germain can reduce the gap back to two points if they win their game in hand at Lille on Saturday.
