The Belgian Jupiler League is one of the oldest club championships in Europe. The first championship was held in the season 1895-96. Since then, there have been 113 draws of the tournament.
In recent years, Belgian football has made great progress. Back in 2010, the Belgian championship ranked 14th in the UEFA table, and now it is already on the 9th place. At such rates, the tournament can come very close to the Italian Serie A and the French League 1 in 5-10 years.
Despite the fact that for the championship in Belgium only 3-4 teams are able to fight, the championship is very competitive. The teams of the middle of the ranking are able to win in a separate match. To understand how hard the fight is in the league, it's enough to look at the standings of the regular season. In the last season, the winner of the regular season was Bruges, while the team has as many as 8 defeats in 30 rounds.
Because of the unusual format of the championship, teams willy-nilly should fight until the last round. Odds on outsiders are usually in the area of 5.00-10.00, but they very often pass. In the 2015-16 season, the Belgian Championship took the third place in terms of performance among the twelve largest European championships. Only 3 teams of the tournament played more matches for total less than 2.5, than on TB 2.5. More than half of teams have for the season 10 or more matches on TB 3.5.
