Portugal’s Primeira Liga is one of Europe’s top leagues and with many top Brazilian and African footballers often playing in Portugal prior to moving to a bigger league, if you watch – and bet on – the Primeira Liga you might just spot the next big thing before anyone else.
The Primeira Liga has just 16 clubs and as with most leagues they play one another home and away, the team amassing the most points by May being crowned the champions. Invariably that is one of Portugal’s “Big Three”, with Benfica, Porto and Sporting Lisbon claiming 78 of the first 80 league titles between them. Moreover, none of those sides have ever been relegated.
Some could argue such dominance by a few clubs makes the Primeira Liga boring but the upside of that is that betting on it can be highly lucrative, with the dominant sides often as close to a sure thing as you will find in top class football.
And there is no doubt that the Primeira Liga is indeed a top division, vying with the French top flight to be the fifth most highly regarded in Europe.
