The 20-year-old Serbia forward finished off a team move to make it 2-0 in the 26th minute, before being set up by Sebastien Haller for his second.

His hat-trick goal came 10 minutes into the second half following a quick break.

He then grabbed two more in the space of three minutes to add to the rout.

Jovic - who is now the Bundesliga's top scorer with seven goals - was replaced with four minutes to go, ending his hopes of a double hat-trick.

Haller scored Frankfurt's other two goals - with Dusseldorf's Dodi Lukebakio making it 4-1 soon before Jovic's third.

Jovic, in the second year of a two-season loan from Benfica, had scored four goals in his opening nine games of the season.

The last player to score five times in a Bundesliga match was half-time substitute Robert Lewandowski against Wolfsburg for Bayern Munich in 2015.
