Wellbet en: Messi is the 21st-century assisting king of La Liga
The Spanish "Marca" on February 12 counted the 21st century La Liga player assist history. The results show that 5 of the top 10 players are still playing in La Liga, but this list may change in the coming weeks. .

On the list, Benzema's assists are very close to Cristiano Ronaldo. The French forward currently has 93 assists in La Liga, while Ronaldo is 95. Benzema is only twice less than Cristiano Ronaldo, and it is only a matter of time.

In the La Liga 21st-century assists list, Messi ranked first, and the Argentine superstar contributed 180 assists, so the assists were more than the midfield players. Ranked second is Harvey, Barcelona legend assists 126 times in La Liga, and he has retired and can not exceed Messi.

Next came Cristiano Ronaldo with 95 assists, Benzema with 93 assists, Iniesta and Kocay with 87 assists, Navas with 84 assists, Alves with 83 assists, Marcelo with 65 assists and 61 Guti. Marcelo is the same defender as Alves. Marcelo had the most assists in the 2016-17 season, and he only assisted once this season.

At the same time, Messi's assist efficiency reached its peak in his career this season. This season, Messi played 1530 minutes, assisted 11 times, and averaged 0.65 assists per 90 minutes, which is the highest in his career.

The last time he showed such a high offensive efficiency was in the 2007-08 season, that season he averaged 0.58 assists per 90 minutes, which is still a little lower than this season. In the last round of the game against Betis, he staged an assist hat-trick. Messi has only scored 2 goals in the last 5 games, but 6 assists. (Ivan)
