But the 24-year-old drew yet another blank, leaving him rooted to just two goals this term.
However, Martial started on the left of a front three as Edinson Cavani lined up through the middle.

Red Devils icon Scholes believes Martial is far better suited to being in a position where he can run at an opponent.
But having already called Martial’s performances into question this season, while also urging Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to use someone else up front, Scholes says the ex-Monaco man is currently ‘moody’ due to his lack of goals this season.
Scholes told BT Sport: “Martial’s strength, we’ve spoken about him being a centre-forward, but he’s not a good centre-forward.
“I don’t think he’s got that movement for centre-forward, he’s not good with his back to goal.
“But when he gets the ball and he’s facing someone, it’s a different position.
