The Ghanaian international powered home the first having been set up by Lucas Mendes before Andre Pierre-Gignac missed two presentable opportunities as the hosts took a slender advantage to the interval.

Ayew then headed a Dimitri Payet centre past Guillermo Ochoa on 60 minutes to double his side’s advantage but Junior Tallo halved the deficit a minute later.

Marseille confirmed all three points with 77 minutes gone when Ayew toe-poked home from close range.
