Key stats

Jovic made 22 appearances in his debut Bundesliga campaign, making nine starts and scoring four of his eight goals as a substitute. That might look like a modest return, but at one point he was second only to Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski in the goals-per-minute department. The 5'9" forward, who hit 34 goals in 56 games from the U16s up, was duly rewarded with his first senior international cap for Serbia in June 2018. His form in 2018/19 picked up with five goals in Frankfurt's Matchday 8 7-1 win over Fortuna Düsseldorf, making him the youngest player to score five goals in a Bundesliga fixture.
