On Saturday evening, Sevilla picked up another win in LaLiga, this time at El Alcoraz, a third straight win in the league. The victory also brought up a fifth consecutive win in all competitions, including the two Champions League wins against Krasnodar. Youssef En-Nesyri, who replaced Luuk de Jong, latched onto a low Lucas Ocampos cross and beat Andrés Fernández at the near post to secure all three points for the Nervionenses. The Moroccan is now on six goals this season.
With that goal against Huesca, En-Nesyri has now scored five goals in his last six appearances in all competitions, and has now equalled his goal tally from last season. The striker, who signed from CD Leganés in the last winter transfer window, finished last season with half a dozen goals in 26 appearances in all competitions, giving him a goal every 185 minutes. After scoring the winner in Aragón yesterday, En-Nesyri has now scored a goal every 93-and-a-half minutes this season, meaning he has literally halved his numbers from last season.
The Moroccan has scored 2 Champions League goals in just 127 minutes of play
In total, the striker now has 12 goals in 1674 minutes since his arrival in January, meaning he scores a goal every 139-and-a-half minutes. His eight goals in LaLiga and four in European competitions give him competition averages of 153 and 99 minutes per goal respectively. In fact, his best average comes in the Champions League this season, where the number 15 has two goals this season - both in the comeback against FC Krasnodar - in just 127 minutes of play, a goal every 63-and-a-half minutes.
In addition, four of his goals have directly secured points for Sevilla FC. Alongside his late winners against Levante in October and against Huesca yesterday, he levelled the match against Celta to allow the team to secure a comeback win, and he also scored the equaliser followed by the winner against FC Krasnodar to seal a famous win.

The striker himself, in his post-match interview yesterday evening, stated that "I'm in my best moment and I’m going to keep working to score more goals". His next opportunities to score are both at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán, with a Champions League clash against Chelsea FC on Wednesday and a massive LaLiga match against Real Madrid on Saturday.
