LEO MESSI TOOK his fair share of the plaudits after coming off the bench to help Barcelona past Paris Saint-Germain last night — but how about that Xavi lad?

Barca’s midfield maestro had a stunning 100% pass completion rate in the Camp Nou, attempting 92 (or 96, depending on who you believe) passes without giving the ball away a single time.

Impressed? You should be, because that’s ridiculous.

Hat-tip to web-app Squawka.com for the graph.
