It is a huge blow, which the Toulouse handball players of Fenix achieved this Sunday, September 25. During the third day of Starligue, the first division of the French championship, the men of President Philippe Dallard brought down the great Paris Saint-Germain, eight times reigning French champion, who came to Haute-Garonne with his armada of stars, brothers Nikola and Luka Karabatic in the lead.
Final score: 35-27 in favor of Toulouse. Fenix players Erik Balenciaga (8/8) or Nemanja Ilic (4/4) each had great success in shooting, to the delight of spectators at the Palais des Sports in Toulouse. In goal, Jeff Lettens also stood out (15/37).

Before this defeat, the Parisians had gleaned two successes in two games at the start of the championship, but had lost at the very start of the season, during the Trophée des Champions against Nantes. The Toulouse, for their part, had recorded a victory and a defeat.
Coach Danijel Andjelkovic’s Fenix thus confirms the good things glimpsed during the summer preparation: 5 successes in 5 friendly matches including a 38-34 against… PSG!
The Toulouse, who failed to qualify for the European Cup last season, hope, at least, to return to the continental scene next year.
