1. HNL Croatia
With a national team that was a finalist at the last World Cup, the Croatian soccer team is working well, and the Croatian league is the perfect platform for future soccer stars to prove their talent on the international stage.
Croatia is a football nation partly because it has come together after difficult trials and has progressed so far in such a short amount of time. Croatian players have no mental block to reach the final stages of pressure games.
The Croatian first division is called 1. HNL and consists of only ten teams. The second division is called 2. HNL.
Which team dominates the championship
Dinamo Zagreb has won every championship since the 2005-06 season, with one exception: in the 2016-17 season, Dinamo finished second behind HNK Rijeka.
That makes 22 titles for Dinamo Zagreb since the championship was founded in 1992.
Since the inception of the league, four teams have never gone down — Dinamo Zagreb, NK Osijek, HNK Rijeka and Hadjuk Split. Of the ten teams competing for the championship this season, only the last will be relegated to the second division.
The defending champions get a ticket to the Champions League and the Conference League — a European football competition sponsored by bwin — along with the other two teams that complete the podium.
Football betting is always an exciting time to be in stadiums where the fans are out in force to cheer their team and upset their opponents.
Betting on the championship in 2021/22
This season the battle for the title is raging with at least four teams that can win the title. Dinamo is not as dominant this season. But it is the only team that is still playing in a European competition.
Osijek, who finished second last season, is a team on the rise, and has the best defence in the league this season. Rijeka is the team that has scored the most goals in the league this season.
To complete the top four, we have Hadjuk Split. These three teams were eliminated in the Europe Conference League play-offs, so they are betting everything on the Croatian Cup as well as the championship.
Recommended bets on the championship
The goal ratio for this season is 2.95 per game for all teams. Rijeka and Dinamo are prolific in front of goals — both teams manage to score an average of 2.28 goals per game since the beginning of the season. When these two teams are on the bill, a recommended bet is to bet on them winning with more than 2.5 goals.
