Majeed Waris on target in 3-0 Strasbourg win over Reims


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 game them the lead in the 50th minute, before Waris doubled the lead 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.

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.
