Sevilla are once again making the Europa League their own, as they are one of only two teams, along with Arsenal, to have won their opening three matches in the group stage.

On Thursday, Julen Lopetegui's outfit comfortable dispatched of Dudelange with a 3-0 victory at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, and Vazquez was the star of the show, scoring two goals.

The first was a relatively routine header into the bottom corner, while his second was a well-taken rebound into the left corner after a save from the goalkeeper.

The best aspects of his performance, arguably, were away from the goalscoring.

He won the majority of his aerial duels, made 10 interceptions, and completed 88 out of 105 attempted passes. His 122 touches in the game were more than anyone in any Europa League game on Thursday, further emphasising his effect on the result for the Andalusians.
