Five-goal Marseille power past AEL

Olympique de Marseille 5-1 AEL Limassol FC
Marseille debutant Lucas Mendes scored one and set up another before three goals in the last 14 minutes heaped further misery on AEL.

Lucas Mendes marked his Olympique de Marseille debut with an assist and a goal as the French club hit back to overwhelm AEL Limassol FC in UEFA Europa League Group C.

Having come from two down to draw at Fenerbahçe SK on matchday one, OM illustrated their powers of recovery once again after falling behind to Edwin Ouon's 22nd-minute strike. Mendes, a left-back signed from Brazil's Coritiba FC in August, set up Rod Fanni for the equaliser before heading Elie Baup's men ahead. Late goals from Loïc Rémy, two, and André-Pierre Gignac added gloss to the scoreline.

An effort from Rémy had been the only shot in anger from either side prior to Ouon stunning the Stade Vélodrome midway through the first half. The Rwandan defender, up for a Monteiro corner, displayed instincts more befitting a striker as he span in the area and rifled the loose ball high into the net.

The Ligue 1 leaders immediately sought an equaliser, with Baup's charges desperate not to suffer the same fate as Olympique Lyonnais last term in losing to Cypriot opposition. Joey Barton had an effort deflected wide, but, from the resulting corner, Fanni nodded OM level, steering the ball past Matias Degra after Mendes had headed back across goal.

Only a smart save from Steve Mandanda, the goalkeeper thwarting Monteiro, kept the hosts on level terms going into the break. It was a stop which would prove pivotal, for the unmarked Mendes headed OM in front after the hour from substitute Mathieu Valbuena's corner.

Then came the late surge, with Rémy making it 3-1 with 14 minutes remaining after his initial attempt, from Jordan Ayew's cross, had been parried by Degra. Gignac curled a shot against the upright yet would get his reward a minute from time with a sumptuous volley from a chip over the top by Rémy, who then applied the coup de grace.
