France blitzed Scotland with seven first-half tries to claim a comfortable 32-18 in Avignon, with Tony Gigot touching down twice to keep their hopes of winning the European Championship alive.
The hosts can still be crowned champions if Wales lose in the late kick-off to Ireland, provided Ireland do not win by more than 39 points.
Things started badly for Richard Agar's side, who went behind despite Olivier Arnaud's early try.
However Gigot responded before Kevin Larroyer, Morgan Escare and Stanislas Robin added to the score.
Gigot touched down again before the break and Ugo Perez's try gave them a 26-point buffer, which was reduced as David Scott and Liam Hood scored consolation tries in the second period.
