Sevilla have suffered a key injury blow amid a solid start to the season.
Despite some difficulties along the way, Julen Lopetegui‘s men head into the international break in a fine position.
Sevilla are currently in third place, just one point behind league-leaders Real Sociedad with a game in-hand.
But they did so without star striker Youssef En-Nesyri, who remains out injured.
It was believed En-Nesyri would return ahead of the Betis clash, but it has since been confirmed he has suffered a setback.
The 24-year-old has played just one of Sevilla’s last six games due to his niggling muscular injury,
And it now looks as though he will miss even more action due to a fresh setback.
According to Radio Marca via Estadio Deportivo, En-Nesyri’s setback could keep him out until the the end of January or the start of February.
En-Nesyri was Sevilla’s highest scorer last season with 18 goals, but he has only scored three this season due to his injury troubles.
He will now miss a big chunk of Sevilla’s title race, while he also looks set to miss Morocco’s African Cup of Nations campaign in January.
