9. Argentine Primera

The Argentine Primera has been a hotbed for football talent over the years, helping young stars on to a platform to make the trip across the Atlantic to European football.

But the domestic league has grown significantly along with the Argentinian economy in recent years and Lionel Messi's old team Newell's Old Boys made it to the semi-final of the 2013 Copa Libertadores before losing to eventual winners Atlético Mineiro.

Although only averaging 1.08 goals per game, Argentina's excitement owes itself to the fierce competition and strength in depth.

The top eight sides are separated by just four points while the top and bottom teams have just 27 points between them.
