Result: Saint-Etienne held at Troyes

Saint-Etienne are held to a 2-2 draw at Troyes in Ligue 1.

Saint-Etienne missed the opportunity to go into third spot in Ligue 1 as a stubborn Troyes side held them to a 2-2 draw.

The game got off to a lively start as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headed in a Josuha Gilavogui cross with just eight minutes on the clock.

However, Julien Faussurier was put through by Fabien Camus and he converted from a tight angle to level things up.

Les Verts were back in front just five minutes later, though, courtesy of another headed goal, this time Brandao nodded the ball into the bottom-left corner.

An exhilarating first half ended with a fourth goal - a second equaliser for Troyes. Defender Eloge Enza Yamissi sent the ball in the box and Benjamin Nivet was there to head into the top corner of the net.

The second half was a drab affair in comparison, with neither side able to match their first-half performances.

Saint-Etienne dominated but were unable to grab the winner, despite a late siege on the Troyes goal.

This draw leaves Troyes in the relegation zone, still five points from survival.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
