On Wednesday, Juventus winger Angel Di Maria passed Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi to move into second place overall in the UEFA Champions League's all-time assists list, just behind Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.



After recording a hat-trick of assists in Juventus' Champions League victory over Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday night, Di Maria accomplished the feat.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United player put on a show for La Bianconeri against Maccabi Haifa, helping his team defeat the Israeli club 3-1.

The triumph marked Juventus' first triumph in the Champions League so far this year.

With his unique treble assists, Di Maria surged ahead of compatriot Messi for the second-most assists in Champions League history.

Di Maria now has 38 assists in 102 appearances in the Champions League, one more than Messi, who has played 159 matches.

Di Maria and Messi are behind all-time leader Ronaldo, who has laid out 42 assists in 187 Champions League matches.

Ronaldo is also the top-scorer in the competition’s history with 140 goals, some way ahead of Messi, who has scored 127 times.
