In today’s Champions League match vs PSG, Barcelona midfielder Xavi attempted 96 passes and he completed all 96 of them. 96 for 96!
According to the Daily Mail, that is a Champions League record. Since the 2003/04 season, no one has completed more passes at 100% accuracy in the competition!
So, Xavi is Number 1, makes sense. But you’re probably surprised to see who the next two gentlemen are on this list:
2. Javier Zanetti in 2010 (72 passes, Inter Milan vs Tottenham)
3. Emmanuel Eboue in 2006 (54 passes, Arsenal vs Porto)
