Arsenal couldn’t manage it last night, so today we turn our attentions to Manchester City’s attempt to overturn their two goal deficit when they take on Barcelona at the Nou Camp tonight.
As usual, there is a couple of money back specials available for punters looking to bet on the first goalscorer, last goalscorer markets, etc.
Paddy Power – If Sergio Aguero scores any time at the Nou Camp, Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on this match.
BetVictor – If 5 goals or more are scored during the Barcelona v Man City match tonight, BetVictor will refund losing Correct Score, First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Scorecast & Half-Time/Full-Time bets in the form of a free bet, up to a maximum amount of £25.00.
After their FA Cup exit on Sunday, Manchester City could be dumped out of 2 competitions in 4 days. To give you an indication of the size of their task tonight, they are 14/1 with Boylesports just to get through to the next round of the Champions League. If you feel like splashing out, Barcelona are 1/25 with Bet365 to qualify.
The 90 minute outright betting sees Barcelona at a best price of 3/5 with Betfred. The Draw is 15/4 with Bet365, and a Manchester City win is a best price of 5/1 with William Hill. Remember, these are 90 minute prices only, extra time won’t count in these bets.
The last 3 matches at the Nou Camp involving English sides have seen 13 goals scored. All those matches would have taken place when Barcelona were in a lot better form than at present.
Barcelona’s last 4 La Liga matches has seen them win 2, and lose 2. They lost 1-0 away at Valladolid last Saturday, and in their previous away match they lost 3-1 to Real Sociedad.
Either side of those results though, they have beaten Rayo Vallecano 6-0, and Almeria 4-1, both wins coming at the Nou Camp. So it would be fair to say that their current form is a bit up and down.
