Aduriz had two shots, both on target, and scored a goal in Thursday’s 2-1 loss to Valencia in the Europa League.

After failing to score in three straight matches, Aduriz was the hero as his goal allowed Bilbao to advance on away goals despite a 2-2 aggregate score. He is the leading goal scorer for Bilbao this season with 17 in the league and 27 in all competitions. Aduriz will hope to add to that total on Sunday against Espanyol, who have struggled defensively this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aduriz fired off four shots and scored his 17th goal of the season in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Las Palmas.

The 34-year-old continues to defy the clock this season, as he now sits at 17 goals and seven assists in 21 starts in all competitions and is on pace for the best year of his career. Aduriz has played a huge role for what is now the fourth-ranked attack in the league, and has helped Bilbao up to sixth in the table. He will look to continue his fine season versus Sevilla this weekend.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aduriz has made 10 starts and been used as a substitute two times this season for Atheltic Bilbao, scoring 12 goals in those appearances.

It has been a quick start to the season for Aduriz with 12 goals in 12 appearances. Five of his goals have come in La Liga matches, three in UEFA Europa League, and four in Spanish Super Cup. Look for him to finish the season with the most goals for his squad if he continues this hot start.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aduriz had a very productive season for Athletic Bilbao, with an impressive 18 goals and four assists in 30 league starts.

It was the most fruitful year of the 34-year-old's career in terms of goal scoring, and he helped Bilbao to an impressive seventh-place finish. Aduriz currently has no real competition at the club for the role of top striker, and should be the main man once again next season.

Aduriz scored the match winner in the 86th minute of Athletic's 1-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.

Aduriz, who also picked up a yellow card, took three shots in the game, all of which landed on target. He now has nine goals in 20 La Liga appearances this season, as well as another seven in 15 Copa del Rey matches. He's been particularly hot of late, scoring seven goals in his last seven matches in all competitions, including at least three shots in each of those contests.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aduriz netted twice during Athletic Club's 4-2 Copa del Rey win over Celta Vigo on Tuesday.

Aduriz netted on both of his shots, finding the back of the net for the first time since Nov. 21 against Espanyol. His scoring pace has been a bit slower than last season, when he had 16 goals and eight assists in 31 appearances, as he has just five goals and two assists in 13 La Liga showings this term.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aduriz is dealing with a hamstring injury, but he appears likely to play Nov. 23 against Espanyol, El Correo reports.

Arduriz scored against Sevilla back on Nov. 2, but had to leave the game with the hamstring issue. The good news is that he'll have the international break to recover, which should allow him back to face Espanyol.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Aduriz scored twice in Athletic Bilbao's 3-1 win over Napoli on Wednesday.

Things weren't looking so good for Bilbao after Marek Hamsik had put Napoli up 1-0 early into the second half. However, Aduriz struck twice in a span of eight minutes, and not long after Ibai Gomez sealed the deal to help Athletic Bilbao earn a spot in the Champions League group stages. An in-form Aduriz holds a lot of fantasy appeal for this weekend's home encounter with Levante.
