Teenage sensation João Félix placed himself firmly in the pantheon of players with big futures in SL Benfica’s first-leg UEFA Europa League match against German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, a team that had yet to lose a game in this year’s European second-tier competition. But the 19-year-old Felix, who has been linked to Manchester United in recent reports, according to The Daily Mail, blasted a hat-trick and also assisted on a fourth Benfica goal, scored by Rúben Dias, to blow past Frankfurt and put the Portuguese Primeira Liga leaders in a solid position to hold on and enter the Europa League final four. All they must do is defend the 4-2 lead when they go on the road in the game that will live stream from Germany.

A goal in the 72nd minute by Frankfurt’s Gonçalo Paciência added some intrigue to the second leg, according to The Hard Tackle. With the pair of away goals already in hand, Eintracht Frankfurt can advance with a 2-0 or 3-1 win over their Portuguese visitors in Thursday’s match.
But in falling 3-1 to Augsburg in a domestic match over the weekend, putting their Bundesliga fourth-place spot in peril, Die Adler have now lost back-to-back matches for the first time in eight months, which according to DW.com could indicate that fatigue is setting in for the club at what may be the least opportune time.
