The clash between the two former clubs of Christophe Dominici, honored for the occasion, will place the loser in a very tense situation. Attention storm approach ...



A match under the sign of tribute to Christophe Dominici.

An emotion which must however quickly give way to determination as Toulonnais and Parisians are on the verge of a crisis, and not just nerves.
