Ayew shoots Marseille to the top



Ghana winger Andre Ayew kept Marseille in step with Paris Saint Germain and Lyon atop the French Ligue 1 table as the two-week winter break kicks in.

The 23-year-old grabbed his fifth goal of the season when he headed home in first half stoppage time to give Marseille a 1:0 win over visitors Saint Etienne on Sunday night.

The win sees all three sides tied on 38 points with PSG ahead on goal difference. Andre was one of six Africans on target in France this weekend, including three Malians.

Experienced defender Fousseni Diawara, 32, netted a consolation goal for Ajaccio who lost 4-2 at home to Rennes on Saturday. Younger fellow Malian, Cheick Diarra, 20, scored the third of Rennes' four goals.

Also Saturday, Mali midfielder Sambou Yattabare scored for Bastia as they spanked visitors Nancy 4-2. Cameroonian striker Benjamin Bile scored one of Nancy's two consolation goals.

There was yet another consolation goal from Tunisia striker Saber Khelifa who scored for Evian TG in a 2-1 loss to hosts Valenciennes on Sunday.
