With eight assists this season, AS Monaco's Brazilian left-back Caio Henrique is back in the Top 10 of the official Ligue 1 Uber Eats assists chart after the Round 36 win over LOSC.

Caio Henrique continues to bring the danger on the left flank. In Round 36, AS Monaco's Brazilian full-back was once again decisive, conjuring the assist for Aurélien Tchouaméni's second goal against LOSC. Now with a total of eight goals teed up for his teammates this season, Caio Henrique is between two Rennes players, in eighth place on the official assists chart.

With this latest assist, the defender once again takes the pole position as the club's assists leader in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, ahead of Kevin Volland (7) and Wissam Ben Yedder (5). In two seasons in the principality, the 24-year-old full-back has already racked up 12 assists.

Angel Di Maria into the Top 20

Angel Di Maria, who has amassed the whopping total of 71 assists in France's top flight, entered the Top 20 of the current campaign after bagging his sixth assist, against ESTAC Troyes on Sunday. By picking out Marquinhos with a nice curled cross from the left, the Argentine climbed to 17th on the assists chart. Despite slightly less playing time this season, 'El Fideo' is PSG's third-top assists provider in 2021-22, tied with Neymar and Achraf Hakimi.

Di Maria is now ahead of Bordeaux's Javairô Dilrosun. The Dutchman also hit his sixth assist by the season, finding the head of Sékou Mara from a corner as Les Girodins took on Angers. It was his third assist from a set piece this season, which explains why he is behind Neymar, Hakimi (six assists in open play) and Di Maria (five assists in open play) in the ranking.
