The goalkeeper set up Antoine Griezmann against Real Mallorca.

That was his second league assist.

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has overtaken some of the biggest names and most-feared attackers in world football in terms of league assists provided this season.

The German shot-stopper provided the assist for teammate Antoine Griezmann to open the scoring against Real Mallorca, which was his second of the 2019/20 season as he had provided one against Getafe in September earlier this year.

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

Barcelona fans, understandably, are enjoying this mind-boggling stat to no end and are not thinking twice before rubbing it in the face of Ronaldo fans. Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, on the other hand, has only one league assist. Even Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, who was once one of the best playmakers in the game, has fewer league assists than Ter Stegen this season.
