Thiago Alcantara

While Arsenal were humiliated by Bayern Munich over the two legs of their Champions League last-16 tie, Thiago Alcantara produced an outstanding display for the German giants.

Thiago scored two crucial goals in the first leg at the Allianz Arena, giving Arsene Wenger’s side no chance to come back ahead of the return leg in London.

And according to this stat by WhoScored.com, Thiago (183) has made the most successful passes in the final third in the Champions League season so far.

Among the others on the list are Atletico Madrid’s Koke (171), followed by Barcelona magician Lionel Messi (163), Sevilla’s trio of Steven N’Zonzi (161), Samir Nasri (144) and Vitolo (138), along with Thiago’s team-mate David Alaba(144).
