Two OM players are in the top-3 of the 2017 Conforama League 1 assist-leader's list.

There is a long tradition of the best assist-man in Olympique de Marseille since 2007-08, first season where the LFP has counted assists. In 10 seasons, four Olympians have reigned as the League’s assist leader:

  • Lucho Gonzalez (2009-10)
  • Mathieu Valbuena (2012-13)
  • Dimitri Payet (2014-15)
  • Morgan Sanson (2016-17)

Now, it's a safe bet that a new Olympien will again stand atop the statistic this season.

PSG’s Neymar is currently in the lead with 13 passes with two OM players hot on the Brazilian’s heels.

The top Marseille scorer is also the best assist man. Florian Thauvin has already delivered 10 final passes (including 4 for Valère Germain). Behind the Orleans native, Dimitri Payet is in third after Matchday 29. He has 8 assists. He overtook Kylian Mbappé in the win over Toulouse by serving Kostas Mitroglou a goal-bound ball.

With the injury of Neymar, who could no longer threaten the L1 goals this season, the two Marseillais are in good position to overtake the Parisian and compete for the trophy of leading assist man. They still have 9 matches remaining ...
