With the Europa League final set to take place on August 21, the race to be crowned the competition’s top creator in 2019/20 is set to reach its conclusion.
Although it’s easy to focus solely on the goalscorers, credit must be given to those supplying the chances, a vital component to any goal.
Arsenal teenager Bukayo Saka leads the way having set up five goals and is joined by Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata.
A host of players follow on four assists apiece, but with Sevilla set to face Inter Milan in the tournament’s final only a few players are capable of catching Saka at the top of the rankings table.
One of them is Sevilla midfielder Ever Banega. The 32-year-old has been edged out of the top 10 as things stand but with three assists to his name, he could shoot up the list if he produces the goods in Cologne.
