Betting on Romanian Liga 1

The league season in Romania starts quite early for a European championship, as by mid-July, the Liga 1 teams are already on the pitch playing official matches of the league season.

Composed of 16 teams, the Romanian championship is played in two phases. With the end of the first part of the season, after 30 games, the championship is split in two. The top six teams in the standings meet in two-legged matches, each one intending to finish as champions or in the European places, while the other ten teams meet only once until the end of the season.

The Romanian champions qualify for the Champions League play-offs the following season, while the next three teams compete in the Conference League, a European competition sponsored by bwin. Place your bets on the Conference League with bwin. The seventh and eighth teams also play a playoff to participate in the Conference League.

At the bottom of the table, the bottom two teams are relegated to division two and are joined by a third team that plays a relegation playoff. Make your Romanian Liga 2 bets now.

Betting on Cluj dominating the Romanian league

Even though several teams from the country's capital, Bucharest, compete in the championship, the centre of football in Romania has moved to the north of the country, to Cluj.

Since the 2017-18 season, CFR Cluj has been the dominant team in the Romanian league. At the European level, CFR Cluj is almost always eliminated in the Champions League qualification phase and often fails to make it out of its group in the Europa League, or the Conference League.

In the last decade, Steaua Bucharest has often finished in the top standings The club from the capital is the most successful team in the Romanian league. In recent seasons, Steaua has usually finished as the runner-up.
