PARIS, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Dario Benedetto’s dream debut with Olympique de Marseille continued on Sunday when the Argentine striker’s double inspired them to a 4-3 Ligue 1 win at struggling Monaco.
Benedetto scored each side of the interval with Valere Germain and Dimitri Payet also finding the back of the net after Monaco had opened a 2-0 lead thanks to Wissam Ben Yedder, who limped off the pitch injured in the second half.
Keita Balde netted a third for Monaco but the principality side stayed second from bottom on two points after five games.
Marseille, with Benedetto having scored five goals since joining from Boca Juniors during the close season, are fourth on 10 points, two behind leaders Paris St Germain. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Pritha Sarkar)
