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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
