Youngster Jordan Ayew substituted Loic Remy on 68 minutes when Marseille recorded their first win this season a slender 1-0 triumph at Olympiakos Piraeus.

Andre Ayew travelled with the Marseille team but was left out of the 18 man squad because of injury.

Elsewhere at the BVB Stadion, Borussia Dortmund needed an 88th minute striker from Croatian international Ivan Periši? to draw one-all with Arsenal.

Midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong was brought on for Theo Walcott on the 77th minute.
