The Croatian ace broke his record for assists in a single season.Luka Modric is Real Madrid’s leading assist-maker so far this season. The Croatian star overtook Vinicius Jr. and Benzema when he set up his eighth goal of the campaign in the last clash with Athletic. His 76th-minute corner was turned in by Benzema to net the second goal of the game and the assist means Modric has made six in LaLiga, one in the Champions League and one in the Club World Cup.
The Whites’ midfielder heads a list of 13 madridistas who have provided assists to date. Behind him, are Vinicius Jr. and Benzema, on 7, while the group is completed by Odriozola and Bale (6), Marcelo, Kroos and Asensio (5), Lucas Vázquez (4), Reguilón and Carvajal (2), Iscoand Brahim (1).
Beyond being the madridistas’ top assist provider this season, Modric has also eclipsed his personal best. In his seven campaigns with the club, the Croatian has laid on a total of 35 goals, spread as follows: 5 (2012/13), 6 (2013/14), 3 (2014/15), 3 (2015/16), 3 (2016/17), 7 (2017/18) and 8 (2018/19).
