Most Powerful European Football (Soccer) Leagues

What league has Europe's most greatest Football teams?

The Top TenXW

1Premier League (England)

The home country of the Football has the most professional clubs in the world and it's first division the Premier League has names like Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Liverpool - MatrixGuy

MU, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Man City, Tottenham, Everton, the first 4 (or maybe 3) all capable to win the Champion's League, the last 3 all capable to win the UEFA league, best league hands down

It is a very competitive league where even the Last teams fighting relegation are bound to beat the Top flight teams. It's a league where all teams fight till the last game of the season

It's ridiculous

2Primera Division (Spain)

HOW ARE THEY 3RD? They have 3 of the strongest teams in the world (Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona). Look at the Champion's league 2014: All 3 of those teams are in the quater finals and 2 will definitely go through to the semis only because Barcelona and atletico Madrid are facing each other (Real Madrid). For Germany, there are only 2 but 1 will go through (Real Madrid has a 3-0 aggregate over Dortmund) and the Premier League has 2 teams but none will go through (PSG has a 3-1 aggregate over Chelsea and there is a 1-1 aggregate with Bayern Munich and Manchester Untited. THEY SHOULD BE FIRST

Maybe premier league is more enjoyable but, this league as the best teams by far, you have just to look champions and europa league.

Their team won many times UEFA champions league title and also, most of best preyer in the world they has pray in that league up to now

Strongest league hands down

3Bundesliga (Germany)

If you really follow the Bundesliga youll see that it has better matches than Primera Division the good thing in Spain are Real Madrid And Barca but they have no competion - Villafranca

For a moment, I would think that maybe Premier League is better than Bundesliga. But La Liga? Damn no. Bundesliga has much more competition than La Liga. Added to that, Bundesliga teams have a better average success rate in European competitions according to statistics. Hands down deserving at least second.

The most competitive league. 4 winners in the past 6 years, unlike La Liga, only Barcelona & Real Madrid.

A very competitive and interesting league - gemcloben

Cant go past the Serie A. With the likes of Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan, AS Roma & SS Lazio its got to be the best league!

5Ligue 1 (France)

Guys... Seriously.

Paris and Monaco are the biggest spenders worldwide, with players like Ibrahimovic, Cavani, Thiago Silva, Falcao, Pastore, Lucas Moura, Moutinho, Veratti, etc...
Paris has 1 C2 cup & 1 final, and several CL semi-finals. Its was in 1/4 finals last year.
Monaco has 1 CL final a few years ago and several semi-finals too.

Marseille represents 1 Champions league win, 1 final and several semi-finals. It's also 2 UEFA Cup finals, and 10 championships and 10 cups. It dominated Europe's football during the 90s along with Milan AC. And it was again in CL 1/4 finals only 2 years ago. Might be one of the hottest public in Europe too.

Lyon won 7 times in a row the Ligue 1 and reached CL 1/4 finals 5 times in a row those past years!

If you add Bordeaux which was in CL 1/4 finals 3 years ago, Lille which was in 1/8 finals also 3 years ago, and mythical clubs like Saint-Etienne and Reims which both reached several times the CL finals, Ligue 1 might ...more

Great league with Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyon...

6Superliga (Turkey)

A very underrated league. The Turkish Super League is the fifth wealthiest league in the world. Has produced some wonderful home grown talent, as well as being one of the pioneers of introducing some fantastic African players to the Turkish league and consequently on to some of the other major leagues of Europe.

Galatasaray are the royalty of Turkish football, with a proud history in various other sports too, such as basketball and swimming and much more. Fenerbahce, is thought of as the peoples team. Also, is probably the wealthiest Turkish football club. There is also one other Istanbul giant, namely Besiktas. In the the shadows of their bigger city rivals, nevertheless, able to mix it up once in a while with the bigger boys. There are lots of medium sized teams too, such as Trabzon Spor, etc. All in all, as regards to standards of Stadiums, training facilities, expertise of personnel etc, well the Turkish Super league is more than equal to the best in the world.

7Liga Sagres (Portugal)

Porto will win europa league this year easily. And its very possible that the final is.. Porto-benfica. Braga at semi-final. need to say more? look at rank and make accounts to 2012-2013, portuguese will beat france and getting close to italy in 4 place. enough?

Porto: 2 times European champion( last in 2004, so its recent and on a money football crazy world), Benfica, the most supported club in the world, on guiness, Sporting, the second most successful club in all sports, behind Barcelona. There�'s not just 2 title challengers like Spain, 2 like england, or 1 like Italy or Germany, they are 3. I'm not portuguese but I watch they football and they are the Brazil of Europe. Go watch and learn

Liga sagres is a great liga because you have four teams that could Win its Benfica Porto sporting or braga like bundesliga Bayern and Dortmund are the only teams that could win that liga I think liga Sagres should be number one in this ranking

Sporting one of the most known teams in Europe

8Eredivisie (Netherlands)

Instead of big clubs at the moment who buy every player they create talent their selfs and Ajax ever was the best club in the world before every club did spend that much money. Even 6 times a club from the Eredivisie won the Champions League! - ICanSeeYou

Laudrup, cruyff, van nistelrooy, sneijder, robben, van persie, van der vaart, ronaldo, romario, ibrahimovic, affelay, van der sar, farfan, makaay, van basten, gullit, huntelaar and so on have all played in the eredivisie, who have played in romania?

Ajax (4x CL winner), PSV (1x CL winner, Feyenoord (1x CL winner)!
Great league with great fans and good game level!

So very underrated. With teams like Ajax, feyenoord and PSV. - gemcloben
