Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez have an excellent understanding. That’s not news. But if there could possibly be any doubts about the one of the greatest strike partnerships ever to grace the game, here at the stats to prove it!
The Argentinian’s relationship with the since departed Dani Alves may have once seemed unsurpassable, but the seemingly impossible has happened!
Records are there to be broken and the Brazilian’s astonishing 26 Liga assists to Messi now fall short of Suárez’s new total of 27 following the latest goal pass against Valencia on Sunday.
Alves is still top in the overall count for all competitions. Suárez needs to set up another five goals for his fellow forward before he is outright leader in that category, but his latest assist does edge Andrés Iniesta down to third in the all-time classification.
