Andre and Jordan Ayew were amongst the Olympique Marseille squad that travelled on Saturday afternoon for their epic clash with Olympique Lyon on Sunday.

The Ghana internationals are part of the 18-man squad manager Elie Baups hopes will do the job in the tough away game at Lyon to close in at the top of Ligue 1.

Both players featured last weekend?s 2-1 win over Troyes to end their winless run over a couple of games.

Marseille will now be looking to continue their new page of winning ways following back-to-back defeats to PSG in the league and the cup.

Midfielder Benoit Cheyrou made a return to the side while Jeremy Morel was also selected despite some injury concerns.

A win on Sunday will take Les Phoceens currently in third place in the French top flight above their opponents and within four points of leaders PSG who have played a game more.

The two Ghanaian brothers who are expected to start against Lyon are yet to rescind their decision of premature retirement from the Black Stars ahead of the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan on March 24.
