After Frankfurt were down to 10 men early in the match, Felix scored the opening goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 21st minute.
His second goal was the best of the three, firing a low drive into the corner from 20 yards out. That gave Benfica a 2-1 lead after Frankfurt had got themselves an away goal.
