The midfielder has set up 4 goals so far in the league.
A vision of the game is one of Isco’s main qualities. In Vigo he again demonstrated that with a measured cross for Bale to make is 2-1 to the visitors. With that latest assist, the Malaga-born midfielder now has four so far in the league and is the best in the team in this area. The three previous assists came in Anoeta (also for Bale), in Getafe (Cristiano Ronaldo) and against the Éibar in the Bernabéu (Asensio).
Having not yet reached the halfway point in the competition, Isco is on track to beat his highest number of assists in a league season: the seven he recorded in the last two seasons. With a total of 26 assist in the league, he is placed third amongst the madridista with the most assists in the league since joining the club. Only Cristiano Ronaldo (38) and Bale (27) are ahead of him.
