RC Strasbourg Alsace manager Thiery Laurey has named his first starting formation of the new season as Strasbourg play as visitors of FC Lorient on Sunday afternoon but Ghana striker Majeed Waris takes a place on the bench.
Laurey who guided Strasbourg to finish 10th in the Ligue 1 last season has handed starting place to lead attacker Ludovic Ajorque who scored 9 goals in 25 league games last season to finish as the club top goal-scorer. Mehdi Chahiri joins Ajorque in attack in a 188.8.131.52 system.
Waris who has previously played for FC Lorient , Valenciennes and Nantes has 36 goals in 103 games in the 5th best league of Europe and is looking forward to better that record this season but he starts from the bench against his former employers this afternoon.
The game kicks off 13 : 00 GMT.
