Manchester City watch Chelsea target Jovic in Europa League action

Manchester City watch Chelsea target Jovic in Europa League action

Goncalo Paciencia and Luka Jovic got the goals for the visitors.

Joao Felix hit the headlines last night as he struck a Europa League hat-trick for Benfica at the tender age of 19.

"If he hadn't scored tonight, everyone would have said he is off-form, but because he scored three, they say he is flying", said Lage.

"Marca" analyzes his statistics, having scored 25 goals and provided six assists in the 39 official matches he has played this year with the German team.

Despite being an attacker capable of using both feet no problem, he feels much more comfortable on his right, with which he has managed to score 15 goals, compared to the eight he has netted with his left foot.

Linked with Premier League giants United and LaLiga powerhouses Madrid, Félix then restored Benfica's lead with a powerful effort from outside the box after Luka Jovic had equalised for Frankfurt.

Joao Felix threaded a ball through the Eintracht defence to send Gedson Fernandes clear and he was pushed over from behind by Evan N'Dicka.

Manchester United fans are calling on the club's boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign Benfica prodigy Joao Felix after his remarkable display in the Europa League.

"It feels like every shot they had went in despite me getting something on majority", said Trapp.

Definitely one to keep a beady eye on.

"We could have let our heads drop at 4-1, but we persevered and hopefully a 4-2 loss will be enough come the end of the second leg".
