Marseille (France) Aug 11 (IANS) The 2018-2019 Ligue 1 football season got under way here with an offensive display by Olympique Marseille who got a brace from captain Dimitri Payet in a 4-0 rout of Toulouse.

His second goal came in the 62nd minute as he pounced on a rebound and put the ball past Toulouse goalkeeper Kelvin Amian Adou on Friday.
Valere Germain made it 3-0 for Marseille in the 89th minute after a deep ball found him unmarked in the box and Florian Thauvin - who came on for Payet in the final stretch - added a fourth goal in stoppage time to complete the triumph for last season s Europa League runners-up.
