There is an early promotion running for your Man City v Real Madrid Champions League betting this week. Wednesday night this week will confirm whether or not the English Champions will have any chance of making it through to the next round. They already need a miracle after picking up just two points from their opening four matches. Now they must beat Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in their final two matches, as well as rely on other results to get through to the knockout stage. So while that all seems terribly unlikely, at least City can go out and prove a point that they can compete in Europe.
What better way than taking down one of the tournament favourites. The naivety of City in Europe came to the fore when they were defeated at the Bernabeu after twice taking the lead. A collapse in the last five minutes of the game gave Jose Mourinho’s men a remarkable win and it was Cristiano Ronaldo who struck the final blow, scoring in the 90th minute to see off the English Champions. The influence of Ronaldo will again be evident in midweek at the Etihad Stadium as City welcome Real Madrid.
If Cristiano Ronaldo scores the last goal of the game, then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match.
So plenty of great coverage on some of the most valuable markets around. This Man City v Real Madrid offer applies to single bets placed before kick off only and the maximum refund is £100 per customers.
