Sevilla qualified from Group A of the Europa League with ease on Thursday after comprehensively beating Dudelange 5-2 in Luxembourg, with Munir recording a hat-trick.

Two of his goals showed a predatory instinct in front of goal as he tapped them both in for a combined distance of about three yards after two low crosses into the box.

His best, which came between the two tap-ins, was a wickedly-struck free-kick from 25 yards which wrongfooted the goalkeeper over the wall, subsequently nestling into the far corner.

He made six shots on goal in total.

In other areas, his workrate was superb, as he completed two dribbles, won the majority of his duels (8/13), had 96 touches and, perhaps most impressively, helped Sevilla out with six ball recoveries.
