Since the beginning of the 2019/20 Europa League, Fernandes has had a direct hand in 21 goals (13 goals, eight assists) in the tournament – more than any other player this term.

Meanwhile, Inter Milan striker, Romelu Lukaku, broke two Europa League records after scoring a goal in his side’s 2-1 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the last-8 final tie on Monday night.

Lukaku’s goal against Leverkusen means the former Manchester United and Chelsea striker has now scored in 9 consecutive appearances in the Europa League dating back to 2014, according to ESPN.

It is also the longest goal-scoring run by a single player in Europa League history, breaking a tie with Newcastle United Legend, Alan Shearer (8).
