Penalty80 PENALTY, TOULOUSE, DOUSSAIN! 30-14. Jean-Marc Doussain adds the final nail into the Ospreys' coffin and the final whistle goes immediately after the kick.

70 Tom Isaacs tries to cross the advantage line but is knocked back by a big hit from Tolofua!

68 Yann David goes on a powerful run in midfield. He does well to hold onto the ball and shows powerful leg drive despite the attentions of two defenders.

52 McAlister puts a chip kick over the heads of the Ospreys' defence and Nyanga gives chase. He's in the clear if he catches it but the bounce of the ball beats him and the visitors gain a reprieve!

49 Toulouse are putting huge pressure on the Ospreys in the scrums. Picamoles picks up and has a go off a set-piece deep inside the Ospreys' 22 but the visitors' defence is well organised. Nyanga and Albacete also has a crack at the line but make little headway. Toulouse are eventually penalised when Christopher-Eric Tolofua holds onto the ball on the ground.

Half TimeHalf-time Toulouse 12 Ospreys 7

40 The Ospreys attack deep inside Toulouse's half but the hosts do well by putting their bodies on the line in defence. When the ball eventually goes to ground at a ruck the referee calls a halt to the first half's proceedings. After dominating the early stages, Toulouse have gone of the boil during the latter stages of the half and the Welsh region have been dominating during the latter stages. It will be interesting to see how the second half pans out.

39 The Ospreys attack close to Toulouse's try-line and Beck goes close to scoring. He is only denied by a brilliant effort from Huget who grasps the ball from his hand.

37 Touluose are pinned inside their 22 and when Burgess sees there's little chance of them getting out of trouble he puts in a clearance kick which goes into touch 40 metres from their try-line.

29 Biggar and Beck exchange passes inside Toulouse's 22 until Biggar boots the ball forward but Huget has little to worry about and dots down behind his try-line.

25 The Ospreys are awarded a penalty inside their half when Gurthro Steenkamp drops his bind at a scrum. Biggar puts the ball into touch just outside Toulouse's 22.

22 Fritz goes off the field after hurting his ankle after a challenge from Ashley Beck. He is replaced by Jean-Marc Doussain.

21 Picamoles is proving to be a handful for the Ospreys defence. Once again he goes on a bullocking run and it takes two defenders to bring him to ground.

18 Toulouse are on the attack inside the Ospreys' half but Duncan Jones does well on the ground and wins a valuable turnover for the visitors.

TRY16 TRY, TOULOUSE, NYANGA! 12-0. Yannick Nyanga gets a lucky bounce at a line-out and races away before scoring in the right-hand corner!

14 Toulouse put huge pressure on their opponents at a scrum but Bearman does well when he controls the ball brilliantly despite being on the back-foot.

12 Touluose are doing well at taking the ball through the phases. They are once again camped on the edge of the Ospreys' 22 until Vincent Clerc stuffs up a pass to Yoann Huget.

Conversion9 CONVERSION, TOULOUSE, MCALISTER! 7-0. Luke McAlister adds the extras to extend the hosts' lead.

Kick-off Dan Biggar gets us underway! His kick is gathered by Louis Picamoles who takes the ball into contact just outside his 22.

Matthew Dwyer, Dmitri Arhip and Lloyd Peers will make their European debuts if they come off the bench.
