PARIS, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Jordan Ayew will miss Olympique Marseille's clash at arch rivals Paris St Germain after the Ghana striker was suspended for two games following his red card in Ligue 1 last weekend, the French league said on Friday.

Ayew picked up two yellow cards in the space of two minutes soon after coming on as a substitute in his team's 1-1 draw at Evian Thonon Gaillard.

Team mate Kassim Abdallah, who was also sent off against Evian, was handed a two-match ban but with one game suspended.

OM, who are third in Ligue 1 - eight points behind leaders PSG - host Valenciennes on Saturday and travel to the Parc des Princes next weekend. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Justin Palmer)
