By putting his name on the scoreboard on Tuesday against PSV Eindhoven (2-2), Youssef En-Nesyri not only made the net vibrate, but he also wrote Champions League history. With his ninth goal in the competition, the Sevilla FC striker surpasses his compatriots to become the top Moroccan goalscorer in the history of C1, alone ahead of the Hakim Ziyech-Marouane Chamakh duo and their eight goals.
The 26-year-old Moroccan international striker (61 caps, 17 goals) has once again demonstrated his flair for goals. In the 87th minute, after a well-taken corner, En-Nesyri rose above everyone else to place an unstoppable header and score the 2-1 goal. A fleeting moment of joy for the Sevillians because, despite a lead in scoring, they were caught at the end of the game (goal from Jordan Teze in the 95th minute). A sharing of points that doesn’t really do the club’s business Spanish. However, this record from En-Nesyri serves as a reminder of the rise of Moroccan football on the European stage. The Lions of the Atlas continue to mark their territory and do the pride of the Cherifian kingdom.

Sevilla in bad shape

PSV Eindhoven, on the other hand, only managed to add one unit in these first two days.
