Marseille made up for their opening Champions League defeat against Spartak Moscow by hammering promoted Arles-Avignon 3-0 away with an Andre Ayew double.

- 0

Ghana winger Ayew, who helped Arles-Avignon gain promotion last season, scored either side of haltime after Benoit Cheyrou scored with a superb free kick just past the half-hour mark.

Arles-Avignon have yet to earn a point since this season.

Marseille, who have eight points from six games, struggled in the first half though as the hosts piled on the pressure.

They were twice saved by goal-line clearances from their France striker Andre-Pierre Gignac, who also set up Ayew's first goal.
