Anyone following South American football will know that Uruguay is home to two incredible clubs, Peñarol and Nacional both of whom have had plenty of success in the continent's biggest club competition, the Copa Libertadores (Peñarol have been Copa Libertadores winners five times, whilst Nacional have won it three times).

But whilst it's great for Uruguay to have two teams punching above the country's collective weight against the giants of Argentinian and Brazilian football, it shows the main issue with Uruguay's Primera División - that it's completely dominated by the big two clubs to such an extent that between them they've won more than 80% of the titles!

The Uruguayan championship title was first held in 1900, and it's Peñarol who still remain the most successful club.
