The series of invincibility in the league is still relevant for PSG.
Three days after its success (31-28) against Montpellier, its runner-up in the standings, the capital club continued this Tuesday in Toulouse (40-28).
Raul Gonzalez's men did not need to strain their talent to line up their 22nd consecutive victory in this one-sided competition as far as they are concerned.
What you must remember
The Parisians were warned. Facing a team that had been one of the sensations of the previous season, it was better to be wary. Before kick-off, Toulouse remained in a series of four games without the slightest setback, including a point sharing with Nantes (29-29). There was also a lot of reunion at the Palais des Sports. Philippe Gardent, the Toulouse coach, coached PSG with which he was crowned French champion in 2013 and 2015. Under his orders, two ex-Parisians were on the score sheet: Edouard Kempf, transferred last summer, and Sadou Ntanzi, on loan for one year. Opposite, Paris aligned the Dutchman Luc Steins, who arrived in November from Haute-Garonne to compensate for the injury of Nikola Karabatic, while the Spaniard Ferran Solé, who spent four years in Toulouse,entered during the game.

After a stuck start (6-7, 16th), the PSG, which was in full force, flew as usual, thanks in particular to Nedim Remili and Mikkel Hansen, in total success.
At the break, the case is heard (13-20).
On returning from the locker room, the Toulousains show a new face but Paris manages.
The gap rises to + 10 (23-33, 48th) to their advantage through Kamil Syprzak.
“We were serious, as always since the start of the season, confirmed Solé at the microphone of the NHL.
It's good for the future.
The player: Nedim Remili
Thirty minutes were enough behind Paris to make the task of Toulouse impossible.
His first period is just perfect: seven shots, seven goals, every time at the right time.
Hansen followed well at one length, but the Dane scored half of his goals on penalties.
The return from the locker room, however, was a little more complicated for Remili, who nevertheless revived his team when Toulouse returned to six goals (22-29, 45th).
With 10 goals in total, the former Cristolien does not sign his best performance of the season (11 against Tremblay on the 6th day), but he remains the top scorer for PSG (101 goals).
The number: 95
Or as a percentage the success rate in attack for PSG before the break. Raul Gonzalez's players shot Cesar De Almeida's goal 21 times, with just one failure. Since the start of the season, they have scored 767 goals in 22 games, an average of 34.9. Twenty times, Dainis Kristopans and his teammates have passed the 30-goal mark. Only Créteil (28) and Nantes (26) resisted. Nantes that the Parisians will find in Coubertin, next Sunday, for perhaps a 23rd success in as many days.
