Waris assist earns Strasbourg draw away at Lyon

The Ghanaian forward played a key role in handing Le Racing a share of the spoils on the road

Majeed Waris had a hand in a Ligue 1 goal for the third consecutive game for Strasbourg after providing an assist in the 1-1 with Lyon on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Ghana international scored in back-to-back games against Toulouse and Reims which ended in victories with Le Racing keeping clean sheets.

On this occasion, they conceded first through Burkina Faso and former Chelsea forward Bertrand Traore, assisted by Ivory Coast winger Maxwel Cornet.

Three minutes before the half-time whistle, Waris’ run on the counter found Mali midfielder Kevin Kohi who buried the ball into the back of the net in fine fashion.

Waris featured for 82 minutes, with his assist counting as his key pass and big chance created in the game.

The former FC Porto man was strong defensively, delivering four tackles and two interceptions.

He was replaced by South Africa forward Lebo Mothiba.

Strasbourg moved up to seventh and are very much within reach of Champions League qualification.

They tackle Amiens at home next Saturday.
