Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri: I beat Barcelona once - I can do it again

Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri hopes to see action against Barcelona tonight.

En-Nesyri left Leganes in January for Sevilla, though has been stuck on the bench with coach Julen Lopetegui preferring Luuk de Jong.

But he declared, "We are talking about one of the best teams in the world, but I consider Sevilla to be a high-level team, very reliable in high-level matches... I think we can win.

"This season it is true that I scored a goal for Leganés, but it did not serve to add three points. I was part of the match in Butarque last season, which ended with a historic victory. I have already beaten Barça with Leganés, now I want to do it with Sevilla."

En-Nesyri added: "I chose Sevilla because it is a big club, which in recent decades has positioned itself among the best at the Spanish and European level. We are talking about the king of the Europa League. I think that at my age Sevilla is an excellent club to develop and grow as a footballer and a person."
