Luis Suarez: Barca's highest-scoring Uruguayan tops goals AND assist charts

The recording of key passes may only have begun in 2004, but prolific pair Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo failed to top both charts at the same time

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez has become the first La Liga player to top both the scoring and assist charts in a single season.

Though Liga BBVA only started recording assists in 2004, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo had never reached the double feat, with Xavi and Mesut Ozil preventing the duo from ever picking up a clean sweep.

Suarez's scoring exploits throughout the season also see the attacker becoming the Barca's highest-scoring Uruguayan of all time.

Suarez is also the first player other than Ronaldo or Messi to finish as La Liga's top scorer since Diego Forlan in 2008/09.
