RC Strasbourg Alsace is off to a good start at the start of the season. After 12 days, RCSA have the third best attack in Ligue 1 Uber Eats with 22 goals, their best total at this stage of the competition since the 1978-79 title season (also 22).

On the fire
With Habib Diallo (six goals) and Ludovic Ajorque (five goals), Racing has two players with at least five goals to their name in Ligue 1 Uber Eats this season. No other club in the top five European leagues in 2021-22 can boast better, and clubs that are at the same level as Julien Stéphan’s team in this regard constitute a sort of who’s who: Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Liverpool, OGC Nice and Real. Madrid.
With 11 goals between them, the two imposing strikers make RCSA the ninth most prolific duo of the big five, tied with Gouiri-Delort of OGC Nice. Nobody did better in Ligue 1 Uber Eats over the first 12 laps.
