After another weekend of La Liga action, Barcelona still remain top of the table, still the division’s top scorers and with the best defence.
The Blaugrana’s midfield has come under scrutiny this season but once again Sergio Busquets has been peerless.
The stats also show that he is head and shoulders above the competitions when it comes to passes (and interestingly the next on the list is Samuel Umtiti who has a slightly better completion rate).
90.3% - Sergio Busquets has attempted more passes than any other player in La Liga this season (822 from 910). Maestro. pic.twitter.com/thSzfKEREC— OptaJose (@OptaJose) November 27, 2017
Busquets has featured in every La Liga game so far this season for Barca and all five Champions League games, as the club have also finished top of Group D.
He will, however, miss the Copa del Rey clash against Murcia after being given a deserved few days off by Ernesto Valverde.
