Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams is on the verge of making history in Spanish football after reaching 200 consecutive league games against Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

Williams played his 200th consecutive game in La Liga, after his main participation in the match against Atletico at Wanda Metropolitano in the fifth week, and it ended in a goalless draw.

The 27-year-old is close to achieving a historic achievement, as he is only two games away from equaling the number of Juan Antonio Laraniaga, one of the legends of Spanish football and Real Sociedad, by playing 202 consecutive matches in La Liga from 1987 to 1992.

Ironically, the start of the amazing series of matches was against Atletico Madrid also on April 20, 2016, and since then he has not missed any meeting and has played all the league matches either as a starter or as a substitute without being injured or suspended.

And if Inaki Williams does not suffer a setback during the remaining days of September, he will play his 203rd match at the beginning of next October, and thus he will surpass the legend Laranyaga and become the most consecutive player in the history of La Liga.

The Ghanaian-born Williams will play his 201 game on Tuesday, September 21 against Rayo Vallecano, before playing against Valencia on Saturday 25 September, and then the record-breaking night against Deportivo Alaves on Friday October 1st.
