Ligue 1: Metz survival hopes take a blow

April 14, 2006

PARIS, April 14 (Reuters) - Toulouse seriously weakened Metz's hopes of survival when they beat the bottom club 2-0 in Ligue 1 on Friday.

Francileudo Dos Santos and Daniel Moreira were the scorers in the 19th and 45th minutes.

Metz have 26 points, six adrift of the last place of safety occupied by Troyes who are 17th in the 20-team division and host second-from-bottom AC Ajaccio on Saturday.

Ajaccio are level on 27 points with Strasbourg who travel to Sochaux this weekend.

Toulouse stay 15th on 40 points.
