Having scored 14 and assisted 12, the Argentinian tops both categories in the competition and is ranked second overall in the top European leagues
Leo Messi is still as decisive as ever. After his hat-trick of assists away to Betis, his goal passes were against a crucial part of the 2-1 win over Getafe. He played a dream assist to Antoine Griezmann with his first touch to open the scoring in a very tight match indeed
That’s an impressive 12 assists so far for Messi in the league, more than any other player. And that’s on top of his 14 goals, which are also a season high. That’s the kind of thing that only the best player on the planet can do.
Second in Europe
To have been involved in 26 goals in 19 games is simply spectacular. That ties him with Jadon Sancho of Dortmund and Timo Werner of Leipzig, and is a tally only topped by Ciro Immobile of Lazio with 31.
