Sevilla committed last January before the pandemic shook the world 41 million in two footballers: Youssef En-Nesyri and Suso. Two additions that the coach, Julen Lpetegui, had endorsed because they adjusted to what he needed to climb one more rung. Both had prominence and confidence from the beginning, especially from Cádiz, although the usual adaptation process would not be completed until that final phase of the Europa League, where they gave a high level. And, above all, this season, once the injuries by the winger had been overcome, they have become a fashionable couple of the nervous attack.

Between Moroccan and Andalusian,

At this stage of LaLiga, when the first round has been consumed (although Sevilla has a pending match), more than half of the team’s goals in LaLiga. En-Nesyri is the leading scorer with nine goals, followed precisely by Suso with three, none from set-pieces. Ocampos also has three, although he has been from the penalty spot. Monchi came a year ago in search of a game generator from a band like Suso and another forward profile different from De Jong, letting Dabbur and Chicharito out. Time seems to have proved him right.

Lopetegui has given great doses of confidence to both. They had to get on a project in progress and earn with work and good matches the possibility of constantly entering into their plans. With Suso, there were not too many problems because they already knew each other. He even displaced striker Ocampos from the band. Of course, since his arrival, the ‘7’ has never been in the current physical state. He has raised his personal bar and continues to dream of that European Championship without a definitive list, making merits with Sevilla.

En-Nesyri’s case is simply that he has broken as a scorer. He had always had good numbers in modest clubs. Now, in a Seville where he has to work above personal brilliance, he can find the necessary spaces to score one of the two occasions that are usually presented to him. He cleverly unchecks the near post as in Vitoria or against Real goes with faith to the header, wherein the race he is unstoppable and does not renounce to hit first. En-Nesyri and Suso lead Sevilla. A year ago they were exorbitant investments. Today we only talk about how much they are worth in the market.
