Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen picked up his second assist of the season on Saturday against Real Mallorca.

The Germany international picked out Antoine Griezmann for a quick break on seven minutes, and the World Cup winner ran through on goal and dinked the ball over the keeper to make it 1-0 to Barca.

Ter Stegen has already picked up an assist against Getafe in the 2-0 win back in September.

He set up Luis Suarez with a long-range pass that saw him become the first Barça keeper to provide an assist in La Liga in the 21st century.

Barcelona’s goalkeeper now has as many La Liga assists this season as a host of players including Nelson Semedo, Sergio Roberto, Gerard Moreno, Dani Parejo, Joaquin and Toni Kroos.
