Real Madrid already has one hand on the La Liga title after they won 4-1 against Celta Vigo yesterday.

In that game, Marcelo provided his 10th assist of the season in La Liga when his low cross in to the box found Karim Benzema who tapped a goal in.

Marcelo now leads the way in Europes top five leagues when it comes to fullbacks creating goals, and only Neymar, Toni Kroos and Luis Suarez has more assists this season in La Liga.

The first assist of the season came from a brilliant long ball over the top for Alvaro Morata who downed Alaves at Estadio Mendizorroza. However, the Brazilian has mostly provided Cristiano Ronaldo with more typical byline crosses.
