Who is Ligue 1 Uber Eats' all-time top assist leader? Who has cooked up the most goals for their teammates in a single season? Who has done that more times than anyone else? Check out our run-down of the official Ligue 1 Uber Eats assist rankings!

The official Ligue 1 Assists chart was launched in the 2007-08 season. In total, 15 trophies have won by the player with the most assists on the final day - proving that a generous mindset can take teams to the top!

Ligue 1 Assist records

Since 2008, eight clubs have shared the 15 Ligue 1 Uber Eats Assists Leader awards, with the addition of Montpellier HSC, where Morgan Sanson played in the first half of the 2016-17 season. Olympique de Marseille (Lucho Gonzalez, Valbuena, Payet and Sanson), and PSG (Di Maria x2, Neymar, Mbappé) top the list with four titles each, followed by LOSC with two (Bastos and Hazard). Finally, FC Sochaux-Montbéliard (Martin), Stade Rennais FC (Leroy), AS Monaco (James Rodriguez) and Nîmes Olympique (Savanier) are the other four clubs on the list, joined in May 2021 by OL (Depay).

Di Maria: The benchmark

The record for successful assists in a single season was achieved by Angel Di Maria (PSG) with 18 in 2015-16 - a season in which the Argentine also racked up the highest number of passes in open play (16) - a record equalled this season by Kylian Mbappé (PSG).

In addition, the title of Assist Leader for the season has been decided three times on the basis of the number of assists in open play (the primary criterion for breaking ties). The first time was in 2008, when Jérôme Leroy beat Samir Nasri (OM), and then - five and ten years later - the ever-green Dimitri Payet missed out on a second title to Mathieu Valbuena (2013) and Neymar (2018).

Paris and Rennes have seen triple this season

Since the 2007-08 season, only one player has managed to bag four assist in a single Ligue 1 Uber Eats match: Memphis Depay (OL), away to FC Metz on 8 April 2018. In contrast, there have been numerous hat-tricks over the period. With PSG, Lionel Messi made assists history by becoming the first ever player to score two assist hat-tricks in the same season (vs Saint-Etienne and Clermont). Mbappé, who won the title in 2021-22, also set up three goals, against Lorient in early April.

Before them in the capital, Argentinians Javier Pastore and Angel Di Maria accomplished it twice, on 28 April 2015 (PSG-FC Metz, 3-1) and 15 April 2018 (PSG-AS Monaco, 7-1) for the first named, while ADM bagged his second during the Classique at the end of October 2019.

Almamy Touré (ASM), Ryad Boudebouz (MHSC), Thibault Giresse (EAG), Jimmy Briand (EAG), Blaise Matuidi (PSG), Romain Hamouma (ASSE), Étienne Didot (TFC), Olivier Giroud (MHSC), Marvin Martin (FCSM), Fabrice Abriel (OM), Paulo Machado (TFC), Lucho Gonzalez (OM), André-Pierre Gignac (TFC) and Islam Slimani (AS Monaco) are also among those who have scored an assist hat-trick in the league. This season in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, among the five players to hit an assist hat-trick are two Rennes players: Benjamin Bourigeaud (vs Metz) and Lovro Majer (vs ASSE).
