2 Olympiakos Piraeus

Undoubtedly the most prestigious club from the balkans today. They've had some really good results in the last 6-7 years in the Champions League and in the Europa league. No other Balkan team can win Olympiacos today in terms of quality

9th team of 2019 in europe

Most historical balkan team along with cverna zvezda

Olympiacos best team in the Balkans it is on the 50 top teams of Europe!

3 Dinamo Zagreb

Best club and best fans in the world! Dinamo and Bad Blue Boys

Dinamo is simply the best!

Second best club in former Yugoslavia and the best one in Croatia and the Balkans at the time

Have made the most profitable transfers from HOME grown players in the last couple seasons. Also they have consistently qualified for European competitions in the last few seasons. This is remarkable considering the lack of quality opposition they play week in week out at home. Even Igor Biscan, former Liverpool FC player noted that if Dinamo played in a stronger domestic league than they could have easily qualified for the champions league in their previous attempts.

4 Partizan Belgrade

I love that team!

Partizan Belgrade played European Cup finals against Real Madrid in 1966. Recently, played Champions League 2 times and Europa league several times. So far 26 domestic champions titles. Devoted and passionate fans. Truly big club.

The club who played European club finals in 1966., played Champions league in 2003. and 2010., club with best and most devoted fans. Truly great club with charisma.

Partizan si the 2 best club on balkan

5 Hajduk Split

More then a football club... ❤

Should be 1st place, they have the best fans and the stadium is better than the fans

Is the best Croatian club. Best derby is hajduk split vs dinamo zagreb.

6 Panathinaikos Athens

Has reached cl final once and semi-final twice, objectively it is one of the besy clubs in Europe thus the best in balkans!

Is the most popular team in europe from balcans because he had played in a cl final and two times in semifinal.

He has reach the champons league final! And he has beat ajax and Barcelona

7 Steaua București

Best Team in central&Eastern Europe

Steaua is to low on this top. I mean,
It's the first champion of Europe from est and south.
It's the team that brouth you the smell of Europen succes.
It's the team that still has a chance against teams like ajax, chelsea or sevilia.
It's the team that still creates records in Europe (fastest hatrick, best qualifocation rate in groups and it's still growng).

Red star belgrad on the first place?
Red star belgrad was defeated in bouth legs of the first round of qualifications in europa league this year by so no-namers... An the are on first position... Lame top

This club definitely deserves to be at least from one of the top list in this classification to the Best Balkan Team.
