Top 7 Football Leagues with Intense Intrigue for the Championship Title

The most popular football leagues cannot please viewers with intrigue. In Italy, there is a favorite Inter. Bayer is in the lead in Germany. In Spain, Real is likely to win. In France, no one can approach PSG. Is it only the English Premier League and the Russian championship that keeps the intrigue? No: here’s a collection of domestic leagues that continue to have intense rivalries. You can place bets on matches in these leagues at the bookmaker Mosbet Azerbaycan.

Portuguese Primeira Liga

Sporting finished fourth last year but is now confidently racing towards the top spot. They are only one point behind the reigning champion, Benfica. Furthermore, Sporting has a match in hand against mid-table Famalicao, so they practically have three extra points in their pocket. Why? Because out of 24 matches, they have won 20. Isn’t that a golden run? However, their fate might be decided in the upcoming home match against the Eagles.

Turkish Super Lig

Galatasaray, with Driss Mertens, Kerem Demirbay, Mauro Icardi, and Fenerbahce, with Dusan Tadic, Edin Dzeko, and former Dynamo player Sebastian Szymanski, stand head and shoulders above the rest. And those are just three stars listed; there are many more. The teams are roughly neck and neck. In such cases, personal encounters determine everything since these giants are practically invincible against others. In the first round, the teams played out a goalless draw. The second round will take place in the penultimate round, and it will be a heated match.

Swiss Super League

Young Boys have won five out of the last six championships. On the other hand, Servette was last crowned champions in the distant year of 1999. However, the boys from Geneva finished second last year and are now ready to dethrone the hegemon. Starting this season, Russian-Cameroonian footballer Gael Ondua plays for them. Additionally, ex-Army player Takuma Nishimura started playing there at the beginning of this year. In three matches, the Japanese player has one goal and one assist. With such reinforcements, it’s not surprising that the team is contending for gold.

Czech First League

Prague is the capital of Czech football, and Sparta and Slavia confirm it. Sparta is represented by former railwayman Jan Kukhta, while Slavia does not have any former RPL players. Therefore, Sparta is ahead. Slavia was the hegemon from 2019 to 2021 but then relinquished the title to Viktoria Plzen and Sparta. In both encounters this season, the winners were not determined (1:1, 0:0). There are six rounds left, and the fate of the championship is far from clear.

Scottish Premiership:

In Scotland, it’s a familiar scenario: apart from Celtic and Rangers, no one has won gold since 2004. That’s when Hearts sensationally did it. In the current season, the championship rivalry has once again unfolded between Celtic and Rangers. However, in the last two seasons, Celtic finished first, but now they are two points behind Rangers. They lost both matches to Rangers (0:1, 1:2). But there will be a third match—exactly in the penultimate round. Essentially, the game will determine the fate of the gold. That is if the Hoops don’t stumble against a simpler opponent again.

Polish Ekstraklasa

Rakow, Lech, Legia, and Piast have been the top clubs in the last five years. But now, Jagiellonia and Slask are challenging for the gold, despite only having bronze medals in the same period. However, the situation here is completely unclear: the group of leaders is so large that any contender could break ahead. Poland is probably the Champion of Intrigue. Perhaps running a bookmaker’s office there is extremely challenging.

Serbian Super Liga

The rivalry between Partizan and Crvena Zvezda in Serbia is like the CSKA and Spartak showdown in Russia. The only difference is that the Russian duo hasn’t fought for the championship in a long time, while the Serbian pair is currently contesting it between themselves. The recent derby ended in a 2-2 draw, but the previous one was won by Partizan (2-1). So, they are ahead for now. However, the positions of the teams could easily change throughout the next five rounds. Both clubs are on a winning streak. Any slip-up could jeopardize their golden ambitions. It’s worth noting that Crvena Zvezda has won the last six tournaments.
