Majeed Waris scores again as Strasbourg beat Reims 3-0


Majeed Waris made it back-to-back Ligue 1 goals after Strasbourg saw off Reims 3-0 on Sunday.

The 28-year old Ghana international hit the back of the net for the first time in Le Racing’s 1-0 win at Toulouse last weekend.

Here, Alexander Djiku gave them the lead in the 50th minute, before Waris doubled it eight minutes from time with a simple tap in from Ludovic Ajorque’s pass.

Strasbourg still had time for one more in the fourth minute of injury time thanks to Kenny Lala.

Waris was fouled five times by the opposition and also produced 50 touches and 18 accurate passes (69.2%).

Thierry Laurey’s men are now up to sixth on the Ligue 1 log, just four points away from the Europa League qualification spot.

They next tackle Lyon away from home on February 16.
