Occasionally, the assist is as important or even more so than the goal itself and, at the moment, nobody can provide more goals than Neymar Jr. The Brazilian star has ten assists in all competitions which is more than any other player in LaLiga. So far this season, Neymar Jr has played in two competitions: LaLiga, in which he has four assists with the last one coming against Sevilla last week; and the Champions League, with six in total and an incredible four against Celtic.

The Barça forward has played in thirteen games this campaign with nine of those appearances coming in the league and four in the Champions League. He has scored four times in the league as well as his four assists and has scored twice in Europe's premier competition, which means he has scored or assisted eight goals in Europe at a rate of two a game.

Of these ten assists he has given five to Leo Messi, two to Luis Suárez and one each to Arda Turan, Iniesta and Mathieu. No player in LaLiga has provided as many goals for his teammates with Messi trailing him with seven so far. After Messi, James Rodríguez and Kroos both have six, followed by Suárez, Griezmann, Lucas Vázquez, Ronaldo and Pablo Piatti on five each.
