Each week we explain a soccer phrase or cliché on our weekly languagecaster podcast. This week we look at the phrase ‘two-horse race‘ which is borrowed from horse racing and refers to the title race. You can find many more examples by going to our football clichés here.

Two-horse race mp3

Today’s English for football phrase is two-horse race. So, at the moment in the Premier League in England, there is a large points gap between the top two teams and the rest of the league meaning that these two top teams are favourites to win the league. Now in Spain it is looking like a three-horse race as Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Sevilla are all involved in the race for the Spanish League title.
