Barcelona forward Leo Messi might be rated as one of the best play makers in the World but it’s Real Madrid star who has topped him as the most efficient assist provider in Europe. Leo Messi has racked up a staggering 12 assists in La Liga so far and he is the leading assist provider.
Neymar who left Barcelona last summer has enjoyed an amazing time at his new club Paris Saint Germain. The Brazilian so far holds 13 assists to his name and he is the top assist provider in Ligue 1. However, the Brazilian now spends 3 months out on the sideline because of his ankle injury.
One more name that has been among the best assist providers in Europe is Belgian Kevin De Bruyne. The Man City playmaker has racked up 14 assists in the Premier League so far and he tops the list of assist providers in Europe.
Among all these big names, there is a surprise name which comes across as the most efficient assist provider in Europe.
Real Madrid star Lucas Vasquez has topped all three of these big names and he holds the best assists per minute ratio across Europe.
Lucas Vasquez has provided only 7 assists this season but his assists come at a brisk rate of an assist every 135.71 minutes. Neymar comes second with an assist provided every 137.35 minutes while Leo Messi ranks third with an assist every 182.5 minutes.
Vasquez impressive run in the team has led to Real Madrid’s good form in the month of February and he’d surely be willing to start against PSG in the return leg this Tuesday.
