In the Primeria Liga, Portugese talent Joao Felix scored two goals and notched an assist in Benfica’s 6-0 thrashing of Maritimo. The 19-year-old has had a stunning first season in top flight football, contributing to 25 goals.

Elsewhere in Europe, 20-year-old Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick which led Paris Saint-Germain to silverware. The club wrapped up their 8th Ligue 1 title following the 3-1 win over Monaco.

Incredibly, Mbappe has scored more goals this season – thirty – than six Ligue 1 clubs: OGC Nice (23 goals), Guingamp (24 goals), Caen (25 goals), Dijon (27 goals), Amiens SC (28 goals) and Toulouse (30 goals).

At this rate, he is destined to become the world’s best.
