The pair of global superstars are followed by Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs, who assisted 31 goals during his time with the Red Devils, while former Barca stars Xavi and Andres Iniesta are fourth and fifth with 30 and 29 assists, respectively.
Ligue 1-based stars Angel Di Maria and Cesc Fabregas are next in line with 27 and 26 assists, respectively, although the former could still climb in the rankings this season with Paris Saint-Germain in the competition.
Di Maria's former PSG teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic is joint-seventh alongside Fabregas and current Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema, while Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery brings up the rear with 25 UCL assists to his name.
