PARIS: Striker Terem Moffi’s second-half goal was enough to give unbeaten Nice a 1-0 home win against Toulouse on Sunday and keep it one point behind French league leader Paris Saint-Germain.

Moffi collected a pass from midfielder Morgan Sanson near the penalty spot in the 54th minute and finished confidently.

Nice has built its success on a stout defense which has conceded just four goals in 13 games.

Monaco is five points behind Nice in third place. Star striker Kylian Mbappé scored his league-leading 14th goal as PSG beat Monaco 5-2 on Friday in an error-strewn match.


Rennes beat fifth-place Reims 3-1 to move up to midtable, thanks to goals from forward Amine Gouiri, attacking midfielder Benjamin Bourigeaud and central defender Arthur Theate.

Brest won 3-1 at Montpellier to go seventh, while midfielder Ablie Jallow scored a late penalty to help ninth-place Metz win 3-2 at struggling Lorient.

Also, Nantes drew 0-0 with Le Havre.

Later Sunday, Lyon will try to move off the bottom of the table with a home win against fourth-place Lille.
