#4: Most assists in a Ligue 1 season
Angel Di Maria currently holds the record for most assists made in a single Ligue 1 season. The Argentine winger grabbed a tally of 18 assists in season 2015-16, after his move from Manchester United.
Morgan Sanson came close to the record after making 14 assists last season for Montpellier HSC and Marseille.
The arrival of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe has signalled intense competition for Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler.
Di Maria has made 4 appearances this season and has 1 assist under his belt. The Argentine also has to make an appearance in the Champions League.
Neymar, on the other hand, looks sure to get his name on this feat after a flying start to his PSG career.
The Brazilian already has 4 assists in the last 5 league games. With apt finishers like Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani on the squad, Neymar could see most of his creations getting converted into goals this season.
This, in turn, will help him break the record for most assists in a Ligue 1 season.Published 21 Sep 2017, 15:54 IST
