Top Assists Chart: user guide and rules
The Top Assists Chart is updated after each round of matches by the Commission.
To determine if a pass is an Assist, the Commission draws upon the following guidelines:
For a pass to be considered an assist, it must:
- be the last pass before a goal,
- be intentional,
- play a teammate into a goal-scoring position.
This Top Assists Chart includes assists from set pieces (free-kick, corner, throw-ins and penalties). The Top Assists Chart shows the total number of assists and also the number of those assists that came from set pieces.
In case of a tie in the Top Assists Chart, the players will be separated using the following criteria :
1/ the player that delivered the greater number of passes from open play
2/ the player that delivered their assists in the greater number of matches
3/ the player that played the fewer minutes.
