Benjamin Urdapilleta's late penalty saw Castres edge past Racing 92 with a 16-13 win in Champions Cup Pool Four.
The sides were locked at 6-6 at half-time after two penalties apiece from Urdapilleta and Maxime Machenaud before a second-half try from Edwin Maka - which was converted by Machenaud - put the Parisians in front.
The visitors looked set to hold on for victory until Maama Vaipulu crossed for a converted score in the 73rd minute, before Urdapilleta slotted the crucial kick.
Racing were awarded two late penalties which could have won them the game, but attempts at goal from through Antoine Gilbert and Teddy Iribaren were sent wide as Castres held on for their first win in the competition.
The return leg between Racing 92 and Castres in Round 4 will be live on Sky Sports Action from 3pm on Saturday December 16
