The Ligue 1 clash between Toulouse and Montpellier was called off after tear gas was thrown onto the pitch by away supporters.

Toulouse were leading 4-1 when the incident occurred after 57 minutes, leaving players covering their eyes and noses with their shirts.

As a result, play was suspended almost immediately and the players were ushered into the dressing rooms by referee Jeremie Pignard.

After a 15 minute stoppage, the match was deemed safe to continue and play resumed.

Montpellier pulled one back through Elye Wahi 11 minutes later, but it proved to be only a consolation in a 4-2 loss.

Toulouse went behind after just seven minutes when Nicolas Cozza gave the visitors the lead. But they responded strongly and were 3-1 up after 31 minutes thanks to goals from Stijn Spierings, Zakaria Aboukhlal and Fare Chaibi.

Brecht Dejaegere added a fourth three minutes after the break before play was suspended due to the incident.

Toulouse went on to win 4-1 to move within a point of their opponents in the Ligue 1 table

Toulouse found themselves down to 10 men after the hour mark when Mikkel Desler was sent off for another offence.

Despite the loss, Montpellier remain ahead of their opponents by a point in the Ligue 1 standings.

Crowd trouble was a concern in France this weekend. Nice supporters were completely banned from attending Paris and the match against Paris Saint-Germain.
