Andre Ayew maintains scoring form with goal for OM

Ghana winger Andre Ayew kept his scoring form intact by scoring his third goal in four games for Olympique Marseille as they hammered Lille 4-0 in the French Ligue 1 on Saturday evening.

The Black Stars deputy captain, 25, has now taken his season tally to 10 goals from 28 games as Marseille continue to press for a European spot for next season.

Marcelo Biesla’s men had slipped down the pecking order to fourth after losing five straight games but the winger over AS Monaco seems to have gingered them and their trip to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy had yielded good results with Ayew assisting and scoring.

Firstly, the Liverpool-target turned the architect for defender Alessandrini in the 70th minute as he slotted past the host keeper before Andre Ayew scored from a trademark effort six minutes later.

Marseille could still qualify for the Uefa Champions League next season if they over AS Monaco who are third with 68 points, two better than Marseille.
