The Russian Premier League is the top division in Russian football. The competition makes for great entertainment because of the competitiveness of the teams. The teams that participate in the top Russian football division compete to qualify for the premier continental competitions. You can bet on CSKA Moscow finishing top of the league and playing the UEFA Champions League competition. Teams that perform well can also get a place to feature in the preliminary rounds of the Europa League
The Russian League is made up of 16 teams in total playing home and away games in a season. Players can bet on the teams scoring the most goals and earning enough points to be crowned Russian champions. Like most big leagues, teams fight to not get relegated. Teams that finish in 13th and 14th position on the log enter into playoff tournament to find out which team gets the chop. This is because the bottom two teams are automatically relegated to the second division, and the third and fourth-placed teams in the Russian Football National League make up the playoff tournament. The winner of the tournament will participate in the top division of Russian soccer the following season.
