PARIS, Jan 12 (Reuters) - A late goal by Daniel Moreira
earned lowly Toulouse a 1-0 home win against Paris St Germain in
Ligue 1 on Thursday.

standings but instead they remained fourth on 34 points from 21
matches, trailing leaders Olympique Lyon by 16 points.

Marseille on Wednesday and are marching towards a record fifth
Despite the win, Toulouse stay 16th in the league and are 11
points above the relegation zone.
Former French international striker Moreira latched on to a
Fode Mansare cross to give the home side a deserved victory.
The Ligue 1 resumes on Saturday, with Lyon visiting promoted
AJ Auxerre entertain RC Lens while Italy striker Christian
Vieri will make his Monaco debut against second-placed Girondins
