Alou Diarra and André Ayew
Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew was dangerous for Olympique Marseille all evening and fittingly bagged a superb double as they spanked Borussia Dortmund 3:0 in a UEFA Champions League tie at the Stade Velodrome on Wednesday.
Both goals were the 21-year-old's first in Europe and came either side of a fine Loic Remy strike. The win kept Marseille at the summit of their group with a maximum six points from two games.
Andre's beautiful evening was slightly marred by the sending off of younger brother Jordan Ayew for a second yellow in the 92nd minute after joining the action in the 72nd minute.
Glen Salmon and Moffat Mdluli
Round seven of the Absa Premiership wrapped up on Wednesday evening and SuperSport United still top the log, though their lead is a slim one – the top six teams are separated by just two points.
Matsatsantsa were held to a 1-1 draw away to Moroka Swallows, with Glen Salmon’s first goal of the season cancelled out by a strike for veteran midfielder MacBeth Sibaya. That result should have been the open door Kaizer Chiefs needed for a return to the top of the log, but they were stunned by Golden Arrows at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
First half goals from Collins Mbesuma and Musa Bilankulu put the Durban team in charge of the game, and though Amakhosi pulled one back through George Lebese early in the second stanza, it was enough to deny Abafana Bes’thende a result which hands coach Ernst Middendorp a stay of execution.
