Toulouse returns to Ligue 1 after a two-year absence

Toulouse reclaimed Ligue 1 with a 2-0 victory against Niort on Monday, two years after being demoted from France’s top division.

Brecht Dejaeghere and Ado Onaiwu scored to ensure that Ligue 2 leaders Toulouse secured one of the two automatic promotion spots.

Toulouse, who are now under new ownership and were cheered on by a 24,000-strong crowd, are currently 11 points ahead of third-placed Auxerre, who will not be able to catch them in their final three games.
