Alves hits the 100 mark

Anna Segura

Dani Alves made his 100th Club appearance against Tenerife on Tuesday and celebrated the occasion by setting up three of Barca’s four goals.

The Brazilian fullback joined Barca less than two years ago and has since established himself as first choice on the right of the back line. In no time at all he’s notched up 100 competitive appearances.

Kings of the goal assist

Along with Messi himself, he tops the ranking of goal assists with 10.

Debut in the Champions League

From that moment on he quickly established himself as a vital element in the team that lifted six trophies last season. In fact, over the past two seasons, only goalkeeper Valdes has played more.

Rome disappointment
