Jovic has hit 24 goals in all competitions for Eintracht Frankfurt this season, the 21-year-old announcing himself as one of Europe's hottest prospects.

That's because Luka Jovic, who's been excellent for the German side this season, has been loaned out until the end of the season.

The Bundesliga side, who played with 10 men for nearly an hour, were in danger of being blown away when Benfica went 4-1 up just after halftime but a second goal by substitute Goncalo Paciencia left the tie more finely balanced for the return.

"A few days ago Luka told me "Dad, I'm not anxious about money. The truth is that Luka wants to stay in the Bundesliga and qualify with Eintracht for the Champions League".

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

It is still unclear when the MAX jets will fly again, with global regulators including China saying they would join a U.S. Employees walk by the end of a 737 Max aircraft at the Boeing factory in Renton, Washington, US on March 27, 2019.

The Portuguese league leaders ran out 4-2 winners in the first leg of the Europa League quarter finals thanks to a hatrick from Joao Felix.

"It feels like every shot they had went in despite me getting something on majority", said Trapp.

Frankfurt are poised to sign him up permanently for a dirt-cheap fee of €7 million in the summer but Jovic has been the subject of interest from a whole host of leading European giants such as Barcelona, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Yet Jovic's father told Bild that his son has always been grounded and turned down offers from Borussia Dortmund, Schalke and Arsenal as a boy.
