Youssef En-Nesyri claimed Sevilla “lacked a bit of luck” when they crashed out of the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.
Having suffered a 3-2 home defeat to the Bundesliga side in the first leg Round of 16 tie, the Spanish top-flight side needed an away win in the reverse fixture to stand a chance of progressing to the last eight.
Nevertheless, they played out 2-2 draw at Signal Iduna Park and ultimately kissed the competition goodbye after a 5-4 aggregate defeat.
We came very close to tying the playoff. We had no luck, we lowered our concentration in a few seconds and they scored that goal,” the Morocco international told the club website.
“In the second half they scored the second, but I am very happy with the work and effort of the team. You have to stay on the same line, face the next few games.
“I am very happy [with my performance], although we have lacked a few minutes. We have to go ahead and look for points in the next few games.
“We have demonstrated what we have and what we have done. We lacked a bit of luck to score goals, but football is like that.”
