Result: Nice clinch dramatic win over Toulouse

Dario Cvitanich scores a brace as Nice battle to a 3-2 victory over Toulouse inside the Allianz Riviera on the opening weekend of the Ligue 1 season.

Nice fought back in the second half to secure a 3-2 triumph over Toulouse on the opening night of the Ligue 1 season.

It was the hosts who broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute when Dario Cvitanich used space on the edge of the box to curl the ball past a helpless Zacharie Boucher.

Toulouse responded well to falling behind, but were forced to wait until the latter stages of the first half to find an equaliser as Martin Braithwaite tapped in Issiaga Sylla's cross.

Wissam Ben Yedder made it two goals in as many minutes for Toulouse to put the visitors ahead before the interval, with an emphatic finish after breaking away with William Matheus.

Boucher was called into action in the second half to keep out Niklas Hult's speculative effort, but the Toulouse stopper was powerless to prevent Cvitanich from making it 2-2 moments later as the Argentine fired home from a Romain Genevois corner.

Nice were ahead once again in the 68th minute through Alexy Bosetti, who found space in the box to head home Gregoire Puel's inch-perfect cross.

A late opportunity to equalise arrived for Ben Yedder in the final minute of normal time, but Mouez Hassan denied the forward to secure the victory for Nice.
