Toulouse 1-6 Marseille

Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi
Michy Batshuayi scored twice to make it four goals in three games for the Belgian under-21 international

Marseille moved above Paris St-Germain into second place in the French league on goal difference thanks to an emphatic win over lowly Toulouse.

Michy Batshuayi set Marseille on their way to a first win in five games before Baptiste Aloe made it 2-0.

A Francois Moubandje own-goal and Batshuayi's second of the night put Marseille 4-0 up at the break.

Wissam Ben Yedder got one back but Andre Ayew replied before Andre-Pierre Gignac scored his 16th of the season.

Marseille are now just one point behind leaders Lyon, who visit Montpellier on Sunday, while PSG are at home to Lens on Saturday.
