On-fire En-Nesyri hat-trick against Cadiz lifts Sevilla into third

Sevilla went into Saturday afternoon’s clash with Cadiz in the Sanchez-Pizjuan knowing that victory could lift them into third in the La Liga table.

Villarreal drew earlier in the afternoon and Barcelona aren’t playing until tomorrow, so Julen Lopetegui‘s team had a chance to steal a march on their rivals for a Champions League place.

They got the job done with a tenacity befitting this well-drilled Sevilla team. Youssef En-Nesyri, their Moroccan marksman, scored his second hat-trick this month to ensure that the points stayed in Seville.

He opened the scoring in the 35th minute before doubling their advantage and his tally four minutes later, completing his hat-trick in the 62nd minute to put the result beyond all doubt.

Born in Fez, En-Nesyri joined Sevilla from Leganes last January, whom he joined in 2018 from Malaga. A Moroccan international, En-Nesyri has scored 15 goals in all competitions this season, including nine from his last 13 shots.

His red-hot form hasn’t gone unnoticed. Premier League side West Ham had a bid rejected for him this winter transfer window.
