Lyon held by Toulouse as their struggles continue

Olympique Lyonnais's struggles continued as they were held to a frustrating 1-1 home draw by Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Friday.

Tete opened the scoring early on for the hosts, only for Rafael Ratao to level after the break and leave Lyon in seventh place on 14 points from 10 games. Toulouse are 11th on 12 points.

While the result ended Lyon's four-match losing streak, it did little to ease the pressure on coach Peter Bosz, whose job is on the line after a dismal start to the season left them 11 points behind leaders Paris St Germain.

PSG will play their game in hand at Stade de Reims on Saturday.

Lyon took the lead after two minutes thanks to Tete's left-footed effort from Alexandre Lacazette's assist but the hosts could not sustain the pace throughout and Toulouse equalised on 67 minutes with a low shot that went under keeper Anthony Lopes's arms.
