João Mário seems to have a point to prove on Wednesday as Benfica host Inter.

The 30-year-old midfielder decided to twist the knife against last year’s finalists with a stunning hat-trick in the first half.

It was a personal vendetta, too, as the Portuguese international previously played for the Italian giants.

Two poacher-style strikes from inside the box beat goalkeeper Emil Audero before he cemented the hat-trick just after the half-hour mark with an easy tap-in.

During his 69 appearances for Inter, João Mário only scored four times!

Prior to this match, the Italian side had never conceded two Champions League goals inside 15 minutes.
