Sevilla clinch draw at Cluj

Youssef En-Nesyri swooped late to give Sevilla a 1-1 draw away at Cluj in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 32.

The Romanian side took the lead after Ciprian Deac converted from the spot, but the Moroccan striker equalised with less than ten minutes to go.

Sevilla were in control of the game in the first half and Luuk de Jong missed a couple of chances to put his team ahead.

Cluj pushed for a goal after the break and they managed to take the lead after Jules Kounde's handball inside the box led to a penalty which was converted by Deac.

Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui sent on En-Nesyri to freshen up his attack and the former Leganes striker paid back his coach's confidence.

De Jong wonderfully set up his teammate inside the box and the Moroccan sent the ball into the back of the net from a close range to help his team escape with the draw.
