Francisco Trincao and Miralem Pjanic both picked up assists for their teams on a busy night of action around Europe.

Pjanic was back in the Juventus team and in impressive form in Wednesday’s dramatic 3-3 draw with Sassuolo in Serie A.

The 30-year-old, who will move to Barcelona in the summer, set up Danilo for the first goal on five minutes and then produced a brilliant bit of magic seven minutes later.

Pjanic produced a brilliant first-time over the top ball for Gonzalo Higuain to add Juventus’ second of the match.

Juventus went on to throw away their two-goal lead but managed to salvage a draw thanks to Alex Sandro’s equaliser. Maurizio Sarri’s men are now seven points clear with five games left.

Over in Portugal there was another assist for Trincao. The 20-year-old continued his fine form in 2020 by setting up Ricardo Horta in his team’s 1-1 draw over Belenenses.

That’s now seven goals and five assists for Trincao for Braga in 2020.
