Lionel Messi has had not his way in the goals department in his first season so far at Paris Saint-Germain, but he is having grand success as a playmaker.
Overall, Messi has completed 76 total passes into the penalty box in Ligue 1 this season. No player in France’s top flight has notched more such passes so far in the campaign than Messi.
Of course, this is quite an impressive feat for Messi at this stage in the season considering that he has appeared in a mere 22 total matches in league play.
The Argentine has also gone on to log 13 assists and a key passes per match average of 2.5 this season.
PSG has nothing to play for over the remainder of this season as it has already clinched Ligue 1, but for players such as Messi, the club’s remaining four matches in the campaign could give them a key opportunity to finish league play on a strong note.
