The season is currently 12 games old. Throughout those games in the Premier League 20/21 there have been a number of teams who have performed either above or in line with their expectations. Shakhtar Donetsk are one of those teams. Out of the 12 that they have played so far they have managed to win 7 of them. This gives them a win percentage of 79.17%. 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 2 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 19. 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. Shakhtar Donetsk have managed this with aplomb and it shows with the number of goals conceded sitting at 11 and their goals scored column showing 30.
With a goal scoring record of 2.50 it is no wonder that Shakhtar Donetsk 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 they have managed to win 7. This shows that they are in excellent form and this combined with their total win percentage of 79.17% means that they are well placed to finish the season with a strong run.
Part of this achievement is down to their strength in defence. By only conceding 11 goals in 12 matches they are letting in just goals per game. A strong defence is a vital base to having a successful season and so far Shakhtar Donetsk have managed that.
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 30 in just 12 games. That means that they score 2.50 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 79.17% it is highly likely that Shakhtar Donetsk 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 Premier League 20/21.
