Ghanaian duo A.Wakaso and Waris come up against Marseille in French League

Ghana internationals Abdul Majeed Waris and Alhassan Wakaso will be hoping for both form and fortune when they come up against Marseille in the French league this weekend.

Alhassan, a younger brother of Granada midfielder Wakaso Mubarak, joined Ghanaian compatriot at Lorient during the winter transfer market.

Waris has scored seven goals for the struggling French side but likes playing against the big boys and will be expected to start the game against Olympic Marseille.

Lorient have scored just 20 league goals aside Waris' 7 and have a goal deficit of 25, which gives the clearest indication of a poor defence.

One of Alhassan's job in the battle to beat the drop will be to anchor the midfield and providing a shield for the club's defence which has been leaking freely.

Lorient are rock bottom of the League table while while Marseille are 7th on the league table and chasing European football next season.
