Scintillating performance for João Félix, who scored a hat-trick against the Germans

SL Benfica beat Eintracht 4-2 and are closer to the Europa League semi-finals. The 'reds' will travel to Germany with a two-goal lead thanks to a brilliant performance by João Félix, who scored a hat-trick and teed up Rúben Dias for the team's third goal. Felix thus became the youngest player to score a UEFA Europa League hat-trick.

The young striker opened the scoring for Benfica in the 21st minute from the spot after Evan N'Dicka was sent off for a foul inside the box. With the Germans playing with ten men, Félix scored the second just before half-time. Rúben Dias scored the third for the 'eagles' with a 50th-minute header.
