Ayew brothers on target for Marseille

05 November 2012 02:18

Second-half goals from Ghanaian brothers Andre and Jordan Ayew clinched Marseille's 2-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the French Ligue 1 over the weekend.

Hanover 96 striker Mame Diouf from Senegal meanwhile netted a brace which helped his side climb to sixth in the German Bundesliga.

In England Chelsea's Nigerian winger Victor Moses scored his first Premier League goal in a 1-1 draw at Swansea.



The Nigeria winger scored his first Premier League goal with the opener in the European champions' 1-1 draw at Swansea. Moses flicked in Gary Cahill's header from a corner in the 61st minute, but the home side dashed their victory hopes when Pablo Hernandez netted a late equaliser.

DEMBA BA (Newcastle United)

Senegal striker Ba endured a frustrating afternoon at Anfield and limped off early in the second half of Newcastle's 1-1 draw with Liverpool, having gone into the match with a shin injury.


Tottenham's Abebayor was booed onto the field as a second half substitute when home fans vented after manager Andre Villas-Boas decided to witdraw Jermain Defoe. The Togo forward couldn't find an equaliser as Wigan won 1-0 at White Hart Lane.



Ghanaians Andre and Jordan Ayew were both on target as Marseille snapped a three-match winless streak to see off Ajaccio 2-0 as the southerners drew level on points with Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Andre Ayew bagged Marseille's first league goal since October 7, nodding Charles Kabore's looping header beyond Guillermo Ochoa on 55 minutes before Jordan, on for Loic Remy, slotted a late clincher home from Mathieu Valbuena's cutback.


French-born Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came off the bench to help Saint-Etienne clinch a 2-1 win at leaders Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes. He induced Mamadou Sakho to fire into his own net and then scored on 73 minutes, increasing his league tally to seven goals.


NANDO RAFAEL (Fortuna Duesseldorf)

Angolan striker Rafael headed an equaliser for Duesseldorf at Bayer Leverkusen, but his first league goal of the season couldn't prevent his team's 3-2 defeat which saw them drop to 15th in the Bundesliga. Earlier the week he scored the winner in a German Cup extra-time win over Borussia Moenchengladbach.

MAME DIOUF (Hanover 96)

Senegal's Diouf stabbed the ball home on 26 minutes, opening the scoring in Hanover's 2-0 win at home to Augsburg which claimed his second goal of the week.

The 24-year-old striker also scored an early goal in the German Cup midweek for a 4-3 win on penalties over Dynamo Dresden following a 1-1 score after extra-time.



Asamoah's solid start to the season could not prevent Juventus' 3-1 defeat to Inter Milan, who stopped the Old Lady of Turin's unbeaten streak at 49 games. The Ghanaian's help, albeit offside, set up Arturo Vidal's first-minute opener.

Juve now lead by just one point on Inter.


Guinean defender Constant was spot-on in a full game for the Rossoneri after little chance to shine this season. His cross from the left led to Milan's opener from Urby Emanuelson for a 5-1 thrashing of Chievo. Constant should get the shout for Tuesday's Champions League return match against Malaga.



Ghanaian midfielder Essien returned to his favoured position after covering at left back for injuries. An increasingly important player for coach Jose Mourinho, the versatile Essien was the main organiser and helped control midfield against Zaragoza, bursting through in the final minutes to score in the 4-0 win.

PAPA DIOP (Levante)

Senegalese Diop's performances in midfield have helped Levante's recent excellent form. Building on better movement in the past weeks he produced a solid display in front of the defence against Sevilla and helped cut out the threat from the home side's attack. Levante earned a 0-0 draw.


A squad player last season, Algerian Feghouli has emerged as a key member of the team. His movement and pace were a constant threat for Atletico Madrid. Sorely missed while he was out suspended, Feghouli worked hard in midfield as Valencia sent Atletico to their first defeat of the season.
