(Video) Anthony Martial scores first goal for Sevilla against Dinamo Zagreb

Sevilla put one foot into the next round of the Europa League after beating Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 in the first leg of their knockout round playoff contest on Thursday night.

Manchester United loanee Anthony Martial starred as he scored his first goal in a Sevilla shirt, finishing calmly to make it 3-1 on the night.

Sevilla dropped into the second-rate competition after finishing third in their Champions League group, while Dinamo came second in their Europa League group behind West Ham United.

The Spanish side went into the game as one of the seeded sides and won the first leg as expected.

However, from a United perspective, I’m delighted that I don’t need to watch as much Europa League football as previous season. I am also happy to see Martial open his account for Sevilla – and in Europe.

Martial cuts in from the right flank and sends the ball past the Dinamo goalkeeper.
