The thirty actors did not hesitate to send the game from all sides to the delight of rugby fans.
Toulouse dominated this meeting for a long time with very good first-hand tries like those of Delibes (36') and Graou (50') but also allowed Racing to relaunch and make them doubt.
Led by 16 points after the trial of the Toulouse scrum-half, Racing seemed in difficulty and unable to come back to score.
It was without counting on the power of the Ile-de-France forwards on Moukoro's try (55') and on the intelligence of Antoine Gibert, author of a fatal interception for Toulouse (60').
The hope was there but Finn Russell decided to do Finn Russell.
After Habosi's test, Racing only had a four-point gap.
A gap that Racing should have closed if the Scottish opener had not failed in his task.
With three failures in Racing 92's last three tries, he left 6 points behind him but above all missed his kick to find the touchline in Toulouse's 22 meters (77').
Too many mistakes for a player of his caliber who may be costing victory, if not more, to Racing.
Because yes, with this defeat Racing finds itself in a delicate position in the race for the final phase while Stade Toulousain is more than ever leader of the Top 14.
