Benzema sends Lyon into French Cup semis

PARIS, April 15 (Reuters) - France striker Karim Benzema sent Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyon into the French Cup semi-finals on Tuesday with a 1-0 home win over Metz.

Lyon, four points clear at the top of the league, stay on course for their first domestic double.

The 20-year-old Benzema collected the ball inside the area with his back to the goal and swiftly turned around to score the winner six minutes from the break.

Metz, bottom of Ligue 1 and already relegated, fought bravely and created many chances with a powerful shot by substitute forward Daniel Gygax forcing a superb save from Gregory Coupet with 10 minutes left.

A late Roy Contout goal gave Amiens a 1-0 win over Ligue 2 rivals Dijon in earlier quarter-final action. The striker scored from the edge of the box with two minutes remaining.

Girondins Bordeaux, second to Lyon in the league standings, take on Ligue 2 Sedan on Wednesday while fifth division Carquefou play Ligue 1 strugglers Paris St Germain.
