Were Sevilla wrong to leave En-Nesyri out at Atletico Madrid?

The Morocco star came up trumps against Osasuna last week and it was surprising his manager left him out against Diego Simeone’s troops on Saturday
When Youssef En-Nesyri scrambled the ball home from Jules Kounde’s header back across goal last weekend, it settled a wildly exciting afternoon where Sevilla had led Osasuna, who were reduced to 10 men, 2-0, only to be pegged back with 15 minutes left to play.
The Moroccan netted in the third minute of stoppage time to spare Julen Lopetegui’s blushes with the 3-2 victory. It was just what the former Spain manager needed after a testing run that’s threatened their Champions League qualification at the end of the season. The Seville giants had gone into last week's game with only two wins from seven, and drawing against another out-of-form side in La Liga would have been frustrating.
Having seen his team drop points against Deportivo Alaves, Celta Vigo and Espanyol in February alone, what Lopetegui didn’t want was his side failing to win against another team against whom Los Nervionenses were expected to take maximum points.
