The Morocco international continued from where it left off its recent campaign on Sunday in front of goal
Youssef En-Nesyri assisted and scored a goal when Sevilla scored a 3-0 victory over Rayo Vallecano in their La Liga opening camp on Sunday.
The Moroccan international played his best goal record in the Spanish top flight last season with 18 goals for Julen Lopetegui, who finished fourth.
He immediately entered into a partnership with his compatriot Oussama Idrissi, who returned to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in June after his loan spell at Ajax in the second half of the 2020-21 season.
Idrissi won a penalty for Sevilla in the 16th minute after being knocked down by goalkeeper Luca Zidane and En-Nesyri stepped forward to stop.
Zidane consequently gets a straight red card for the offense and Rayo Vallecano had to take down Oscar Trejo for goalkeeper Stole Dimitrievski.
Sevilla kept the lead for the first 45 minutes and Idrissi was replaced by Erik Lamela before the start of the second half.
Lamela doubled the hosts’ lead in the 55th minute and later made it 3-0 after taking advantage of En-Nesyri’s help.
