Today on EFD we’re bringing you nine of the most bizarre title races in recent history, whether it be because of the teams involved, last minute drama or something off the pitch. It kicks off with Steve McClaren guiding FC Twente to an Eredivisie title over one of the best Ajax sides in recent years, whilst of course we also mention other surprise winners from across the continent.
This includes the Leicester City-Tottenham Hotspur race in 2016, Deportivo La Coruna cruising to La Liga glory in the year 2000 and a three way Bundesliga battle in 2007 that featured Schalke, Stuttgart and Werder Bremen but no Bayern Munich. They did however win the 2001 title, despite Schalke fans celebrating winning the title on the pitch elsewhere. The likes of Norwich and Aston VIlla were almost the first ever Premier League winners back in 1993, whilst Liverpool caught everyone by surprise as they looked to end their title drought in 2014.
Then there’s Real Sociedad almost toppling Real Madrid in 2003, whilst in Scotland in 2012, Rangers were deprived of a title race in the courts, effectively surrendering the Scottish Premiership to Celtic for that year and the eight that followed.
