Johan Elmander scored twice as Toulouse beat Marseille 3-0 in the French Ligue-1 on Saturday. Achille Emana was also on the score sheet for Toulouse, who have moved up into third place in the standings. Marseille's recent slump in form has seen them slip down to sixth in the table. It was the home side who opened the scoring in the 39th minute. Empty goal Johan Elmander was put through by Achille Emana and dribbled around Marseille keeper Cedric Carasso before slotting the ball into the empty goal. The Swede then made it 2-0 in the 49th minute. He collected a pass from Albin Ebondo with his back to goal, brilliantly went past Ronald Zubar in one movement and raced through to score. Marseille continued to search for a goal, but they were caught out for a third time in the 63rd minute. Emana was put clear by Paulo Cesar and calmly chipped the ball over the advancing Carasso. The win lifted Toulouse on to 41 points from 26 games.
