The Barcelona captain was decisive once more at the business end for his club on Wednesday, laying on a goal to achieve one more career landmark
Andres Iniesta’s assist for Ivan Rakitic’s goal in Barcelona’s 1-1 draw against Atletico Madrid means he is the only player to have made at least one assist in each of the last 14 La Liga seasons.
The Catalans’ provider-in-chief took his all-time assist tally to 83 on Wednesday when he crossed for Rakitic to open the scoring before half time.
His consistent displays laying on the goals for Barcelona’s forwards are just one indication of his value to the club which he has helped win eight La Liga titles as well as four Champions League crowns.
