En-Nesyri scores on Europa League debut against CFR Cluj

The 22-year-old netted on his debut in the competition after coming off the bench in the 1-1 draw versus the Romanian giants

Youssef En-Nesyri found the net on his Europa League debut in Thursday’s 1-1 draw with CFR Cluj.

The Moroccan replaced Jesus Navas in the 73rd minute, and it took him just nine minutes to make an impact for the Spaniards.

After a goalless first-half, the Romanians took the lead courtesy of Ciprian Deac’s 59th minute penalty after VAR replays showed Jules Kounde had handled the ball.

The 33-year-old made no mistake from 12 yards to send fans inside Constantin Radulescu Stadium wild.

However, super-sub Nesyri ensured that the game ended all squared with the leveller courtesy of Luuk de Jong’s assist.

The result is a morale-booster for Sevilla ahead of the Europa League last-32 return leg on February 27, where the winner takes all.

Julen Lopetegui’s men visit Coliseum Alfonso Perez for this weekend’s La Liga fixture against Getafe.

Sevilla are currently fifth in the Spanish elite division log having accrued 40 points from 24 outings.
