Only Messi and Neymar Have Reached This Impressive Feat This Season

Lionel Messi guided Paris Saint-Germain to a 2-1 home win over Toulouse on Ligue 1 matchday 22. From the outside-the-box goal scored in the second half to the seven goal-scoring chances created for teammates, Messi was on top of his game throughout this league fixture.

Messi has been a vital player for PSG this season as both a goal-scorer and a playmaker. He scored the 10th goal of his Ligue 1 campaign against Toulouse, and he now sits at 20 goal contributions in league play.

As noted by Opta, Messi and Neymar are the only players in Europe’s top five leagues this season who have recorded at least 10 goals and 10 assists in league play. Neymar currently leads Ligue 1 in goal contributions with 22, as he has tallied 12 goals and 10 assists.

Overall, Messi leads Ligue 1 this season in total shots per game (4.4) and big chances created (17).
