9 WEIRDEST Titles Races Of All Time! 

Weergaven 99K

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.

How about Montpellier who won Ligue 1 at 2011? At that time Psg was already a rich club not to mention there were Lyon, Bordeaux, and Marseille as the strong contenders, also Lille with their Eden Hazard to chase their 2nd win title in a row.. Yet Montpellier came out of nowhere with the power of Giroud and Belhanda striking the league and won the title despite the fact they finished 14 the last season and only entered Ligue 1 three years before.. But tbh 2008-2012 Ligue 1 are so interesting considering the year after Lyon's dominance broke every winners after that to 2012 are different.. 2008= Marseille 2009= Bordeaux 2010= Lille 2011= Montpellier 2012= Psg

2008/09 Bundesliga better be on here. Hoffenheim were “winter champions” (topping the table going into winter break) behind Ibisevic scoring at a rate that hadn’t been seen since prime Gerd Müller, and then Wolfsburg win off the back of Grafite also scoring at a Gerd Müller rate Edit: on the 26th match day, Wolfsburg and Bayern were also PERFECTLY even in the table. Same points, same wins, same goals for and against, and head to head wasn’t considered as a tie breaker

What's crazy about the 1999/2000 La Liga race is that the three relegated sides were Betis, Atletico and Sevilla. Three teams who had won La Liga before. Noting that only 9 sides have won La Liga and 3 have never been relegated. Betis and Atletico had 42 and 38 points respectively. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbank finished second on the top scorers list for Atletico Madrid with 24.

I'm sorry but this is poorly researched. Stuttgart won the last game against Cottbus 2-1 and Not 2-0 (winning Goal a brilliant Header by kedhira). Furthermore Stuttgart are NOT "die roten" (the Reds) but are rather known as "the Cheat-Rings" (die Brustringe). I dont know if you just Look at a Clubs Jersey (which would be wrong too cuz stuttgart usually plays in white) and then just translate that shit. I can't pinpoint the video cuz it's been a long time but you've also called Bayern Munich "the old lady" before which is the nickname of hertha berlin.

What about Real Madrid's 06/07 Liga?? Barcelona was in first place for much of the season while Real were six points behind and in fourth. Madrid only finally caught up with like 6 games left, tied in points with Barcelona but 1st due to goal difference. Madrid had to come back in a total of 11 matches that year, many of them in the final stretch of the season with many goals in the last 10 minutes. With only 2 games left, Madrid, Barcelona and Sevilla could still win the title. In the last game Madrid basically won the title (and Barcelona lost it) in the last 10 minutes of the season. That was the tightest and most epic league season I've ever seen. It is known in Spain as "La Liga de las Remontadas".

Hancok Maand geleden
@Ghjk Lkop After Benfica won the 1961 and 1962 European Cups against Barcelona and Real Madrid, their Hungarian manager Béla Guttmann approached the Benfica board for a raise but they refused him upon request. Angry at this, he resigned from his position and allegedly cursed the club, telling them "Not in a hundred years from now will Benfica ever be European champions again". Later, on 6 April 1963, in an interview to A Bola, he stated, "Benfica, at this moment, are well served and do not need me. They will win the Campeonato Nacional and will be champions of Europe again." Benfica did end up winning the Portuguese league in 1963 as he said, and also reached the 1963 European Cup final. However despite his words Benfica went on to lose that final and every subsequent final they reached in multiple European competitions from that point onwards, with 11 in total so far: European Cup/UEFA Champions League: Lost in 1963 to AC Milan Lost in 1965 to Internazionale Lost in 1968 to Manchester United Lost in 1988 to PSV Lost in 1990 to AC Milan UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League: Lost in 1983 to Anderlecht Lost in 2013 to Chelsea Lost in 2014 to Sevilla UEFA Youth League Lost in 2014 to Barcelona Lost in 2017 to Red Bull Salzburg Lost in 2020 to Real Madrid Béla Guttmann died in 1981 at the age of 82. The 1990 European Cup Final was held in Vienna where he was buried. Hours before the final was played, legendary former Benfica player Eusébio prayed at Guttmann's grave and begged for the curse to be lifted, but to no avail. Eusébio himself died in 2014. Going by Béla Guttmann's words, Benfica will not win a single European competition in any format until after 2062. There's another 41 years of this curse left to go. Also, it was originally thought that this curse only applied to the senior team before the inaugural season of the UEFA Youth League in 2013-14 - but after Benfica reached the first final and lost it in the same season that they lost the UEFA Europa League final to Sevilla, it was all but confirmed that the curse extended to youth competitions as well.

I love the inclusion of the Eredivisie but the 2006/07 season was way more spectacular and crazy. On the last playing day PSV, Ajax, and AZ had the same amount of points(72). AZ were 1st with a goal difference of +53, Ajax second with +47, and PSV third with +46. PSV won the title on goal difference because they beat Vitesse 5-1 goal and Ajax only beat Willem II 2-0. These games were played at the same time and were absolutely nerve wrecking for the fans. This meant that PSV won the title (AZ lost earlier that day) with a goal difference of +50 while Ajax had a goal difference of +49.

Definitely should have won it though, pains me to this day. Spurs however, had the chance to finish above Arsenal for the first time in 20+ years and they bottled that 🤣
