Although it doesn’t quite match the feeling of scoring a goal, providing an assist is one of the most satisfying things a footballer can achieve on the pitch.

Whether it’s splitting the defence in two with a piercing through-ball or whipping in a cross for a runner at the near post, the guy setting up a chance is just as important as the one adding the finishing touch.

In the Bundesliga last season, Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller was the assist king with 18 to go with his impressive tally of 11 goals, and he is currently on course to smashing that. The German already has 16 assists for the campaign, more than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues and the only Bundesliga player to hit double figures.

Muller’s closest rival so far this season is Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Florian Wirtz on nine assists ahead of a quartet on seven.

So, as the 2021/22 campaign unfolds and Bayern look to hold off Dortmund and RB Leipzig to win a 10th straight title, use our table below to keep track of who has provided the most assists in the German top-flight.
