The Dutchman has been in stunning form this season, with his tally for the season in all competitions taken to 29 with a treble against Boavista

Bas Dost put in another talismanic performance for Sporting against Boavista, although his cause was aided by some questionable defending from the hosts.

The Dutch forward grabbed himself a hat-trick in a 4-0 win, taking him onto 29 for the season in all competitions.

He is a leading contender for the European Golden Shoe, with his efforts keeping him hot on the heels of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich’s prolific frontman Robert Lewandowski.

Dost’s first against Boavista came about as a result of a shocking back-pass, while his second was converted from the penalty spot.

He then added a third just past the hour mark as he was again left unmarked to roll into an unguarded net.
