Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew could not save their club from defeat at the hands of Lyon

Ghanaian duo of Andre and Jordan Ayew suffered a huge embarrassment on Wednesday night as Lyon powered to the summit of Ligue 1 with an emphatic victory of their club Marseille.

Lyon won the match in emphatic fashion as Bafetimbi Gomis’ hat-trick helped them beat Marseille 4-1 in front of a stunned Stade Velodrome with the two Ghanaian brothers in full-time action.

The hosts came into this match level on points with leaders Paris St Germain and optimistic about their chances of opening up daylight at the summit, but instead went away nursing bruised pride as Lyon delivered the perfect response to their 3-0 defeat to Toulouse at the weekend.

Gomis fired Lyon in front from the penalty spot after three minutes before adding his second 11 minutes before the break.

Steed Malbranque made it 3-0 to the further delight of Lyon fans who had made the journey down the A7, while Gomis completed his treble 18 minutes from time.

Those Marseille fans that stuck long enough at least got to see Loic Remy pull one back on 77 minutes, but Rod Fanni’s straight red card for the hosts moments later seemed a more fitting finale to an abject display.

Victory leaves Lyon two points clear of PSG at the summit, while Marseille slip to third.

Remy Vercoutre had to be at his best to preserve Lyon’s lead on 14 minutes as he saved brilliantly from a Jordan Ayew header.

Remy pulled one back on 77 minutes as followed up Jordan Ayew’s shot to score on the rebound, but there was more home misery to come as Fanni received a straight red three minutes later for a dangerous tackle on Mouhamadou Dabo.
