He has provided seven assists from corners or free-kicks in the league, which is the highest in the competition.
Toni Kroos is a master with his right foot. He proves this every time he takes a corner or a free-kick near the area. In fact, the German midfielder is the best player from set-pieces in the league. Seven of his nine assists have been as a result of a dead-ball in the competition. He is followed by Piatti, with four; James, Emre Colak, Neymar, Parejo and Joaquín, with three each.
Toni Kroos’ perfect deliveries have come against Osasuna (two), Betis (two), Málaga (two) and Deportivo. And as you would expect, Sergio Ramos is the player who has taken advantage the most of this. The captain has scored five goals as a result of dead-balls from the German. The other two were put away by Pepe and Varane.
Equalled his record assists
After the last assist he provided against Betis, Kroos now has 12 in all competitions this season. This equals his best record since he joined the Whites (12 in the 14/15 season).
