Leganes Youssef En Nesyri hatrick sinks Betis
10TH FEB 12:40 GMT
Leganes striker Youssef En Nesyri struck a hat trick against Real Betis in a 3-0 whitewash to maintain their unbeaten home record since September in La Liga Santander match.
Leganes had put Betis on the backfoot and should have taken the lead early on from Martin Braithwaite and Oscar but fluffed their chances only to take the lead from En Nesyri opening the scoring after being left unmarked from Johnathan Silva’s corner to take the ball down and score via Antonio Barragan legs on 22 minutes.
Setien’s side were looking jaded from their Copa Del Rey 2-1 win over the week against Valencia and were caught on the ball through Oscar, who stole the ball and was allowed to run into the box and tee up Neysri to fire into the bottom right corner.
Pellegrino’s side was on a roll and Youssef En Nesyri on 66 minutes hit their visitors on the counter, latching on to a precise through ball from Martin Braithwaite before unleashing an unstoppable shot into the bottom left corner from the edge of the area.
Javi Garcia was given a straight red for making an awful challenge on his opponent and the referee shows him to the showers with 10 minutes remaining in the game.
