Ghana winger Andre Ayew scored to inspire Olympique Marseille?s comeback as they fought from behind to defeat AS Monaco 2-1 at the Stade Velodrome on Sunday night.

The 25-year-old Liverpool target levelled the scoring for Marcelo Bielsa?s side in the 79th minute after the had conceded a 1st minute goal.

Joao Moutinho gave third-placed Monaco the lead in the first minute with a 20-metre shot and Marseille huffed and puffed until Andre Ayew equalised with a header 11 minutes from time.

Romain Alessandrini then sent the Stade Velodrome into a frenzy with a 87th-minute winner following a counter-attack to lift Marseille up to fourth on 63 points, two behind Monaco with two games left.

The Ghana deputy captain timed his positioning inside the box and head home a cross from Alessandrini for his 10th Ligue 1 goal of the season.
