Punters often visit online sportsbooks and make use of promotions to earn themselves an extra bet. Whether a punter or loyal fan, the Premier League is always a source of entertainment and good football.
The Italian top football league is old, being here since 1898. Today, it has 20 clubs competing for the title of champion, and like the Premier league, a spot in the UEFA Champions League, at least for the top 4 teams. It has iconic clubs like Juventus, who now has Cristiano Ronaldo playing for them, Internazionale, Lazio, A.C. Milan and many more. This year, in particular, should be interesting as Cristiano Ronaldo is playing for Juventus, the club which also took the championship title the previous season.
The first of the Spanish leagues has a lengthy name, but it is often dubbed La Liga, due to the sake of simplicity. The top teams in Spain compete, just like the rest of the top leagues in Europe, for a spot in the UEFA Champions League, as well as the title of Spain’s best team. There are 20 teams in this league, just like the previous two, and the top 4 get a place in the UEFA Champions League group stage. The famous teams of La Liga are Real Madrid and Barcelona, among others. These two are usually the main competitors, each winning over 20 titles, in the case of Real Madrid, 33.
The German number 1 league is called the Bundesliga. It features teams like Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. There are 18 teams in the Bundesliga, 4 of which are granted a pass into the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. Teams can be relegated into the second tier league, called the 2. Bundesliga. This goes for the leagues mentioned above, as well.
These are the top leagues to watch in 2019, the ones likely to provide you with the best football and entertainment.
