Brothers Jordan and Andre Ayew combined to score in the 53rd minute to ensure Olympique Marseille maintain their 100 percent run and set new club record in a 1-0 victory over Nancy at Stade Marcel Picot on Sunday evening.
The 20-year-old arrived in the right place to plant home a powerful header beyond N’Dy Assembé from an Andre Ayew stinging cross from the left wing.
Andre outwitted a Nancy defender on the left before tailoring a cross for Jordan to apply a screaming header.
Marseille had their perfect start to the campaign to protect and Jordan Ayew made clear of their intentions in the 3rd minute.
His flicking header came off the hand of a Nancy defender inside the box but the referee failed to award a spot-kick to the visitors.
Andre Ayew came close to opening the scoring on the 10th minute mark after his low drive was cleared off the line.
Marseille enjoyed lion’s share of possession and their dominance produced the results eight minutes after the break with Jordan Ayew handing them the maximum points.
Jordan’s strike has set a new club record at Marseille by starting the season with five wins in a row.
