When there are just a few days until the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 tie against AS Roma, it is always a good moment to look over the numbers of the Sevilla FC players in Europe so far this season, several of which stand out.
In terms of appearances and minutes played, Nemanja Gudelj is the only player to have played in all eight matches so far, and has featured in every single minute, 720 minutes of play. Sergio Escudero is one match behind, with 630 minutes played, while goalkeeper Yassine Bono has the third most matches and minutes, with six matches and 540 minutes in total.
Munir El Haddadi leads the goalscoring charts with five goals in Europe so far this season, and he is one of the in-form players since competitive football resumed in June. The next two players on the list are no longer at the club, with Dabbur (3) and Chicharito (2) leaving in January after featuring in the Group Stage, so Franco Vázquez is the second top scorer currently at the club, with two goals. Lucas Ocampos has not scored in this competition yet, so we will have to wait and see if he can take his LaLiga form into Europe.
Munir leads the way for goals and assists
Regarding assists, Munir again has more than anyone else, setting up two goals so far this season, the same numbers as Dabbur. Escudero, Óliver, Franco Vázquez, Banega and De Jong, among others, have all done their bit, getting one assist each, a statistic that shows that Julen Lopetegui has always sought to have his players fired up in all competitions.
These are the Sevilla FC numbers ahead of their Round of 16 tie against AS Roma at the MSV Arena in Duisburg. AS Roma played their final Serie A match of the season yesterday evening, beating Juventus, their final test before facing the Nervionenses on Thursday at 18:55 CET.
