Messi-Griezmann, best attacking duo in La Liga

Messi-Griezmann, best attacking duo in La Liga

The Argentine and the Frenchman have 31 goals and 14 assists in the league, more than any other duo in the championship

Barça are, by some margin, the top scoring side in La Liga. The blaugranes have scored 67 goals in 28 matches and have even reached a century in all competitions. They are some way ahead of La Liga's second top scorers, Atlético Madrid, who have found the net on 51 occasions. Furthermore, Leo Messi is pichichi with 23 goals, ahead of Luis Suárez on 19 and Karim Benzema on 17. 

The Argentine is not only top scorer in La Liga, he is also the player who has provided most assists with eight along with Iago Aspas, Marcos Llorente and Toni Kroos. That means he has been involved in 31 goals this season in the league, more than any other player. If we add team mates Antoine Griezmann's contribution this season in the league then we have the most lethal tandem in the Spanish top flight. 


The Frenchman has scored eight goals and provided eight assists in La Liga, taking part in 14 goals. Added to Messi's total we have a total of 45 from the two Barça strikers, by some way the best record in the Spanish league. 

The best in La Liga, fourth in Europe 

The Barça duo are followed in the table by Atlético's top pairing of Luis Suárez and Marcos Llorente who have 38 goals and assists between them. In the table below we can the totals from the top tandems. 

Pair Goals Assists Total
Messi + Griezmann 31 14 45
Suárez + M. Llorente 28 10 38
Benzema + Kroos 19 14 33
Oyarzábal + Isak  22 8 30
Gerard M. + Alcácer 21 8 29
Roger + Morales 21 5 26
Aspas + Nolito 14 12 26
En-Nesyri + Ocampos 19 4 23
Canales + Fekir  10 11 21


If we take a look at the top leagues in Europe we see that only Bayern Munich's Müller and Lewandowski (65), Spurs' Kane and Son (58) and Inter Milan tandem Lautaro Martínez and Lukaku (46) are ahead of the Barça pair. 

65 in all competitions 

If we go beyond La Liga and included all competitions, we find a Messi who has scored 29 goals and created 11 assists. We add to that 14 goals and 11 assists from Antoine Griezmann and we have a total of 65 with still 11 games to go in the 2020/21 season.
