THE BALL – Felix next to Column and behind Messi and Mbappé (Benfica)


A goal and an assist made João Félix the man of the game in the victory (5-1) of Benfica over Boavista. The young Portuguese international has already scored five goals in the League (also scored in the Cups), which places him alongside Mário Coluna as the youngest player with so many close shots.

The difference is that in 1954, Coluna, at 19 years, two months and 19 days, needed seven games just to reach the five goals in the Championship. Felix already has eleven games played in the league this season.

The statistical data platform Goal Point also shows that João Félix needs only 67 minutes to score a goal or to make an assist. Significant record in European football in which it is surpassed only by Messi, Neymar, Mbappé, Cavani and Paco Alcácer.
