The season is currently 21 games old. Throughout those games in the LaLiga 21/22 there have been a number of teams who have performed either above or in line with their expectations. Athletic Bilbao are one of those teams. Out of the 21 that they have played so far they have managed to win 6 of them. This gives them a win percentage of 52.38%. This has played a massive part in their form this season and is why they are managing to achieve at least what was expected at the start of the season. Sitting in 10 place they will be happy with their season so far.
Part of the reason for their success is their ability to outscore the opposition. This is shown with their goal difference of 3. The ability to keep out the opposition is a vital part of winning football matches but it does require the ability to score goals at the same time. Athletic Bilbao have managed this with aplomb and it shows with the number of goals conceded sitting at 17 and their goals scored column showing 20.
With a goal scoring record of 0.95 it is no wonder that Athletic Bilbao have managed to make the season such a successful one. They have managed to achieve more than what their fans expected at the start of the season and if they keep up their current performances then they are likely to keep it up.
Over their last five games Athletic Bilbao have had a little bit of a blip. They have won 2 out of their last five. However, they have had them before during the season and managed to come out strong on the other side so they should manage to do the same now and get back to winning ways.
Part of this achievement is down to their strength in defence. By only conceding 17 goals in 21 matches they are letting in just goals per game. A strong defence is a vital base to having a successful season and so far Athletic Bilbao have managed that.
Even though Athletic Bilbao are having a very successful season so far, they have not been particularly prolific in front of goal. They have only scored 20 in 21 games so far this season, which means they score 0.95 per game. This is a relatively low amount for a team in their position and if they want to keep their position in the LaLiga 21/22 they will have to improve this aspect of their play.
With a win percentage of 52.38% it is highly likely that Athletic Bilbao will continue to maintain their current form and finish the season strongly. This is backed up by the stats which shows them to be one of the strongest teams in the LaLiga 21/22.
