Bet on the favourites of the Polish championship
Over the last twenty seasons of Polish football, only six teams have won the Ekstraklasa, and of those six teams, only three have won the league three or more times.
Legia Warsaw is probably the most famous team in Poland. The team from the capital has the record for the number of national titles and has also won the Polish Cup almost twenty times. In the last six seasons, Legia has won the championship title 5 times. After their last title in 2021, they became the most successful team in the history of the Polish championship with 15 titles.
While Legia has many rivals, you won't see a Warsaw Derby game Why? It's because their longtime rivals, Polonia Warsaw, now play in Poland's third division, having been promoted at the end of last season.
Ekstraklasa side, Lech Poznan has some of the best young developing talents in Europe. As a result, the Ekstraklasa league has become a great exporter of players with great potential.
One of the most eagerly awaited derbies in=s between l Liga sides Wisla Krakow and MKS Krakow. It has been dubbed by local fans as the "Holy War."

Recommended Ekstraklasa bets
Few goals are scored in the first half in the Ekstraklasa league. The second half of the game is much more exciting, with 56.9% of the goals scored after the break. Since the first quarter contains the fewest goals, it follows the traditional quarter of an hour of observation in the Polish Football championship.
The two most frequent results this season are a 1-1 draw (16%), followed by a win by the smallest of margins: 1-0 (14%). A recommended bet would be to bet on games with less than 2.5 goals, as well as wins with one goal difference.
