Almamy Touré's performance was hailed by Leonardo Jardim in his post-match press conference. And deservedly so, as in addition to 55 balls played, a 78% pass completion rate, and 14 balls won, the right-back also played 4 passes that led to shots on goal... Even better, he has served up 4 assists in his last 4 matches in Ligue 1, after going the previous 5 games without a single one. Saturday was also the first time he has claimed more than one assist in a Ligue 1 game (in 35 matches).
Almamy Touré is the first defender to provide 3 assists in the same Ligue 1 match since 2006/07... The full-back, who came through the club's youth system, has set up 11 goals in Ligue 1 since the 2015/16 season, that's 2 more than any other defender in that period (in just 30 matches).
