22 goals and 5 assists
The Frenchman is definitely not a stranger to the third place and the process with Colochoneros. But, the club have fought to the end with Barca and Real Madrid for the title. Groezmann scored 22 goals and provided 5 assists for the season. His achievements often gave him the victory. 11 times to be exact. No one has done better in this past year in Liga. Not even Luis Suarez, with 40 goals.
