Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to beat Toulouse 3-1 and make up ground in the French league on Sunday.

Toulouse took the lead when midfielder Etienne Capoue headed home a corner in the 39th minute. But PSG equalized in the 56th when France striker Kevin Gameiro outpaced the Toulouse defense to take a pass from Argentine playmaker Javier Pastore and chip goalkeeper Ali Ahamada.

Pastore then fed substitute Mevlut Erding, who slipped the ball past Ahamada to give PSG the lead in the 90th. PSG winger Jeremy Menez added the third goal in the third minute of injury time to seal the win.

Also, Rennes beat Caen 3-2 while Sochaux edged Saint-Etienne 2-1.
