Lionel Messi has been the assist king in recent matches for Barcelona, notching six in his last three La Liga outings to make it 12 for the season.

The Barcelona captain is way ahead of everyone else in Spain’s top flight when it comes to assists. The next best are Luis Suarez, Portu and Rodrigo Moreno on seven.

All of which means that Messi looks set to beat his previous best record of 18 assists in a La Liga season which he achieved in 2010-11 and 2014-15.

Barcelona have 14 games left to play giving Messi plenty of chances to add to his tally.
