Failing 3 small points from first place in Europe last May, RC Strasbourg had many regrets. Regrets that are already perpetuated at the start of the season, since the Alsatians are already not at their best in Ligue 1. Only one point taken in two days, after a home defeat against Monaco (1-2), then a draw in Nice (1-1). Two tough opponents to start, and not favorable results, since Strasbourg occupies the 15e place in the ranking. But Julien Stéphan’s men will have the opportunity to catch up this Sunday against Reims (1 p.m.)with however some absentees to be expected, in particular the French defender Colin Dagba, and South African striker Lebo Mothiba.

Indeed, in a press conference the Strasbourg coach gave news of his two players, packages since the start of the season. If the first must still wait, Lebo Mothiba seems to be doing betterand could claim a place in the group.

Dagba must climb the steps

The South African international (14 selections, 4 goals) He has been chaining training sessions with the group for 2 weeks, as Julien Stéphan indicates, and has even found some playing time. He played two games with the reserves, including 60 minutes last weekend. Now it’s at my disposal and it’s up to me to see if I take it or not for Sunday « .

However, this is not the case for the Parisian defender on loan this season to the RCSA, since he will have to wait a week, he who is in the “reathletization” phase. With a bit of luck, Colin Dagba will be able to live his first summons for the trip to Auxerre on Saturday August 27 (5 p.m.).
