Felix also became the youngest hat-trick scorer since the UEFA Cup was rebranded to the Europa League before the 2009-10 season.

But Frankfurt's goal was also scored by a player contracted to Benfica as Luka Jovic, on loan from the Lisbon outfit, bagged the first-half equaliser and didn't shy away from celebrating.

Felix struck his third before Goncalo Paciencia headed in for the visitors.

Jovic's Frankfurt side may have been on the losing end of that game, but the 21-year-old's fine goalscoring form continued.

Luka Jovic is one of the most talked about strikers when it comes to the upcoming summer transfer window.

Ahead of Frankfurt's quarter-final first leg with Benfica on Thursday, Jovic's father said that, while Spanish giants Barcelona have made an approach, his son is more likely to stay at Frankfurt next season.


Jovic has played 38 times for Frankfurt so far this season, scoring 24 goals and assisting a further seven strikes.

"He's not sure he would get any minutes at Barça".

"He wants to continue in the Bundesliga and qualify for the Champions League with Eintracht".

Eintracht are fourth in the Bundesliga with a four-point cushion to Borussia Monchengladbach in the race for Champions League football.
