Tadic is statistically the most creative Champions League player, better than Messi!
Another confirmation that the Serbian national squad footballer, who plays for Ajax, is in the form of of his life
With two new assists in Ajax's victory at Mestalla over Valencia (3-0), Tadic reached a total of six in the elite competition and is leading Ajax to new successes after they played in the Champions League semi-finals last season.
One of his moves was particularly spectacular, when he magically outplayed the Spanish team's entire defense line.
The precise Opta calculated that Tadic made 43 key passes during the two seasons so far, and along with the six assists, leads the Champions League in this segment.
43 - Dusan Tadic created more chances than any other player in the Champions League since last season, among which two assists vs Valencia; no player provided more assists in the Champions League since 2018-19 than Tadic (6, joint with Riyad Mahrez). Maestro. pic.twitter.com/Jbdy6C0kt9

He is so convincing that he leaves behind Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos (38 key passes, three assists), Barcelona star Lionel Messi (33, and 4), an City's Raheem Sterling (33, 2).
31-year-old Tadic is playing in the form of his life for Ajax and will end his career at that club and then start his coaching career - if everything goes according to plan, and the contract that he has with the Amsterdam club.
