Mathieu Valbuena and Andre Ayew net late on to salvage Marseille a dramatic point in their Europa League opener against Fenebahce.

Late goals from Andre Ayew and Mathieu Valbuena saw Marseille come from behind to earn a dramatic 2-2 draw with Fenebahce in their Europa League opener.

Both sides began slowly, with reported Premier League target Loic Remy wasting the only notable chance of the first 20 minutes by heading wide from Valbuena's cross.

Caner Erkin gave the hosts a 28th-minute advantage when he converted from a difficult angle following Hasan Ali Kaldirim's pass.

Experienced Brazilian Alex extended Fenerbahce's lead 12 minutes after the break when he headed home from Mehmut Topez's cross.

The Turkish outfit entered the last 10 minutes with a two-goal cushion but Valbuena soon reduced that by firing in from close range.

After providing the first, Ayew then salvaged Marseille a late point when Valbuena returned the favour, crossing for the Ghanaian international to head past Volkan Demirel.
