Argentina Superliga

Isn’t football a fun sport, where the odds on excitement are certain and where you spend the week before the game betting how exciting it will be?

In Argentina, where Diego Maradona is a saint and where Marcelo Bielsa is called crazy, their own Superliga attracts millions of people to its matches.

Argentinian Superliga Format And Background

BetGold enables you to find top Argentina’s Superliga betting tips. The league was first held in 1891 and called the Primera División. After England, it is the second nation to set up a domestic league, with amateur teams from Rosario and Buenos Aires competing initially. In 1931, 18 clubs formed a professional league. In the 1970s and 1980s, the league was divided into the Metropolitano and the Nacional, which allowed smaller teams like Velez Sarsfield to join the ranks.

From 1991 until 2014, the famous Apertura/Clausura system was in force in various forms, which awarded the trophy in Argentina to two teams. After many other changes in the 2010s, the number of teams has been whittled down. In 2019/20, 24 teams played 46 matches each against one another. The season began in July 2019. To encourage good performance in consecutive seasons, teams are relegated by average points across the previous three seasons.

Superliga Top Teams

Football fans the world over know of the rivalry between River Plate and Boca Juniors. River have won Argentina’s Superliga, as it is now called, 36 times, with Boca behind on 34. Their four most recent titles have come in the last six years, making them a surefire team to enjoy betting on.

Racing Club de Avellaneda, known as Racing, are on 18. They won the 2019 title. Independiente, who also play in Avellaneda, have won 16; San Lorenzo, of Buenos Aires, have won 15.

Arsenio Erico leads the all-time scoring charts, with 295 goals in the 1930s and 1940s. Of the modern era Martin Palermo is the most recent addition to the 200 Goals Club, on 227, in a time where many Argentina Superliga stars, including Palermo himself for several seasons, play in Europe.

Historic Argentinian Players

Indeed, Diego Maradona (odds are you have heard of him) scored plenty of goals for Argentinos Juniors between 1978 and 1980. Enzo Francescoli scored 24 goals in the 1984 season, 25 in 1986/87 and 12 in the 1994 Apertura tournament. The likes of Juan Pablo Angel, Fernando Cavenaghi and Martin Cardetti have been key players in River’s recent success, which means betting on them is still prudent. Their current squad includes the likes of Juan Fernando Quintero, wearing the famous number 10 shirt, and defender Robert Rojas of Paraguay.

Dari Benedetto has been crucial to the success of Boca Juniors, winning the 2016/17 Golden Boot in Argentina’s Superliga. Taking his place have been the likes of Ramon Abila, Mauro Zarate and Carlos Tevez. Tevez is back in his home nation after several years in Europe. For this reason, the odds on Boca will always be low.
