Athletic Bilbao: Williams will catch up with Andoni Zubizarreta

Iñaki
Williams will have the opportunity to play next Sunday against Celta in Balaídos their 184th consecutive match in LaLiga and thus equalize Andoni
Zubizarreta in the third position of that historical ranking.

The rojiblanco striker started his series almost five years ago. It was on April 20, 2016, in a match against Atlético in San Mamés, when the Bilbao striker started that streak of uninterrupted appearances that continues to this day.

From that date the attacker participated in the four remaining matches of that course, in all of the 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020 seasons and in the 26 matches played so far by Athletic in the current course.

Of the 183 matches in a row that the striker has chained, of the total of 222 that he accumulates in the highest category, Williams he formed 159 of them in the starting eleven and in the remaining 24 he entered from the bench, scoring a total of 36 goals in that period.

The absolute record for consecutive games in LaLiga history is held by the former Real Sociedad player John
Antonio
Larrañaga, who between the 1986-1987 and 1991-1992 seasons played 202 in a row.

In front of Williams, only appear in that ranking, in addition to the Gipuzkoan, the legendary goalkeepers Luis
Arconada (188) and Andoni
Zubizarreta (184), which he will match on Sunday.
