The season is currently 17 games old. Throughout those games in the Eredivisie 20/21 there have been a number of teams who have performed either above or in line with their expectations. Groningen are one of those teams. Out of the 17 that they have played so far they have managed to win 9 of them. This gives them a win percentage of 64.71%. 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 6 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 4. 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. Groningen have managed this with aplomb and it shows with the number of goals conceded sitting at 21 and their goals scored column showing 25.
With a goal scoring record of 1.47 it is no wonder that Groningen 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 Groningen 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.
They have managed this while still being relatively porous in defence. They have conceded 21 goals in just 17 games. This shows that success if not always built on a solid defence, and sometimes teams are just able to outscore the opposition, like Groningen do.
Their goal scoring prowess is a vital cog in the machinery that has put them into such a good league position. So far they have managed to score 25 in just 17 games. That means that they score 1.47 per game. Their regular ability to score goals means that they always have the ability to win games, no matter who they are up against.
With a win percentage of 64.71% it is highly likely that Groningen 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 Eredivisie 20/21.
