Their poor form in front of goal is shown up by the fact they have only scored 45 goals in 42 matches. This gives them a total of 1.07 goals per game. This is not a good enough record to provide the level of success that was expected at the start of the season.
They aren’t having much luck defensively either. Currently Numancia have let in 53 goals. This is far too many for a team with their aspirations, and when you consider that they have conceded this many in just 42 games it shows why they have struggled this season. They have conceded 1.26 goals per game. Unless they manage to stop the flow of goals going the wrong way, they are unlikely to be able to turn their season around.
With just 13 games won this season out of their 42 games played, their poor showing up front and at the back has caused them to be on a dismal run of form. Their win percentage for the season is just 44.05% and this is definitely not acceptable to Numancia’s fanbase.
However, they have managed to win 3 games in their last five games. This does show that they have the ability to turn their season around. If they can keep up this run of form then they could well achieve what they set out to achieve at the start of the season.
Overall, all of these factors have come together to cause Numancia to have a much less impressive season than they expected at the start of the season.
