One-cap Super Eagles striker Cyriel Dessers has nets twice again as Feyenoord beat  Olympique de Marseille 3-2 in the Europa Conferences League played on Thursday night at De Kuip.

The 27-year-old debuted for Nigeria in a friendly 1–1 draw with Tunisia on 13 October 2020 under former national team handle Genort Rohr broke his deadlock 18 minutes into the tie in Rotterdam.

The hosts’ second came two minutes later with another long ball over the top to Arsenal on-loan star Reiss Nelson who lay a pass to Luis Sinisterra before his first time shot took a deflection into the net.

After scoring twice, Feyenoord seemed to take their foot off the gas by allowing Bamba Dieng, who had earlier missed two big chances to reduce the deficit for Marseille to 2-1 after 28 minutes of the clash.

The Ligue 1 outfit equalise in the 40th minute when Ofir Marciano spilled former Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi’s cross, straight to Gerson who hammered it into the net.

Ten seconds after the whistle to start the second half, Caleta-Car made an awfully silly mistake to allow Super Eagles striker Dessers to pounce and complete his brace of the night by Feyenoord the lead again.

Marseille attempted everything to try and find a third goal through former West Ham and club skipper Dimitri Payet but Marciano, who made seven saves, stood firm and ensured his side go into the second leg with the advantage.
Feyenoord will visit Fortuna Sittard as they look to finish third in the Eredivisie, while Marseille will host Lyon in their bid to finish second in Ligue 1 before the two sides meet next week.
