RC Lens' right-sided wing-back Jonathan Clauss caught PSG's Kylian Mbappé at the top of the official Ligue 1 Uber Eats assists chart by cooking up his eighth of the season in Round 20.

Kylian Mbappé is no longer in sole control of the assists chart. The PSG striker's duck away to Lyon in Round 20 paved the way for Jonathan Clauss to pounce, cooking up the only goal of Les Sang et Or's narrow win against Stade Rennais FC (1-0). The RC Lens right-back is now level with the Parisian superstar on eight assists for the season so far.

A key player for the north-eastern club, Clauss is the second-most decisive defender in Europe's top five leagues this season (ten - two goals and eight assists), behind Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool, 11).

Podium in sight for Amine Gouiri

Amine Gouiri was also in fine form in Round 20, scoring one goal and providing one assist as he moved closer to the assists podium with his fifth of the season. The OGC Nice striker is now seventh in the standings, just one place off the podium, and is the second-most decisive player in Ligue 1 this season (14 - nine goals and five assists), on a par with Ludovic Ajorque (14 - ten and four four), behind Kylian Mbappé (17 - nine and eight).

As for Ajorque, he also wore both the scorer's and provider's hats on Sunday with RC Strasbourg Alsace. With four assists, he climbs to 13th place and becomes the Alsatian club's joint-best assist provider alongside Ibrahima Sissoko.
