Saturday’s game against Cádiz saw José Luis Mendilibar’s first victory in charge of Sevilla, with a standout performance by Youssef En-Nesyri. The Moroccan striker neatly finished a chance from a tight angle to score his team’s second and final goal of the game.
En-Nesyri has been in flying form since the 2022 World Cup, where he and his team dazzled the world with their spectacular run to the semi-finals. Since the tournament, only Karim Benzema has scored more goals than En-Nesyri.
The Real Madrid centre-forward has 13 goals in all competitions since the tournament in Qatar, while his counterpart at Sevilla now has 11., report Spanish outlet Marca. En-Nesyri has a total of 13 goals in the 2022-23 season.
During his best season, the Moroccan striker scored 24 goals in 52 games in the 2019-20 campaign.
Benzema will have the opportunity to continue his own hot streak today against Real Valladolid.
