Chelsea v Barcelona: Join Coral for 50/1 a Goal Being Scored

+18 / play responsibly / T&C apply

When the names came out of the hat for the first knockout phase of this season’s Champions League, there was no doubt as to the tie of the round. Chelsea fans may not have been quite as enthusiastic about it but the neutrals are all looking forward to their clash with Barcelona, the first leg of which takes place at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Naturally it’s going to be a big draw for the betting community too but maybe this new customer offer from Coral could prove to be the best value deal of the night.


That’s the enhanced odds figure for this game and all it would take for that 50/1 price to land is at least one goal between these two. It’s certainly a good alternative to the result betting which has odds against numbers on all three outcomes and might therefore make the first leg tough to call.

For the record, Barca are favourites in 90 minutes at a best of 6/5 with Sun Bets, the draw is at a top price of 13/5 with William Hill while victory for Chelsea comes in at best odds of 11/4 with Unibet. Alternatively, punters could bet over the 0.5 goal line which is the equivalent to this Coral promotion and that is available at a top price of 1/16 with Ladbrokes.

So, if those figures sound interesting and you qualify for the deal, this is the procedure.

Get on Board

You can only proceed if you don’t have any current dealings with Coral and if that is the case, you are free to cross over and complete their registration page. This is fast and simple, only needs very basic information and within a couple of minutes or so you will be confirmed as a new account holder.

Funds are naturally needed in order to cover that bet so, when you find yourself at the Coral cashier, remember these important points:

  • The minimum deposit required is £5.00
  • Use any available funding method other than Skrill, Neteller or PaySafeCard as these are specifically excluded and you will not be able to proceed with the offer.

We suggest using a debit or credit card if possible as these are fine and should clear straight away leaving you ready to progress to the next phase.

Making the Bet

The money will show in a box on your account page and you can then stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on this promotional bet of at least one goal to be scored when Chelsea play Barcelona at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday February 20, 2018. It’s a 19:45 kick off and remember, we just need one goal in the 90 minutes – the bet does not take into account the second leg.

If it comes in, payment is in a two part process with the first profit arriving as cash, based on Coral’s standard book price at the time of kick off. You should find this in your account shortly after the final whistle while the balance, up to the 50/1 quoted price boost, arrives as free bet tokens within 24 hours.

Alternatively, if the bet loses and the game finishes with a 0-0 scoreline, Coral will award a £5.00 free bet token by way of consolation. Those tokens have a short shelf life of 4 days and while that is a full summary of the important points, you can check all of the terms and conditions on Coral’s offers page.


Barcelona come to Stamford Bridge with their prolific front line of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez who are guiding their side to another La Liga title. Meanwhile, Chelsea have struggled at times with star signing Alvaro Morata short on goals but there has been plenty of support for the striker from around the team.

The teams warmed up nicely at the weekend, scoring six goals between them in their respective fixtures so while this bet is far from guaranteed, it is looking good. If you’re happy with the deal, it carries an excellent price with potential for increased profits for new Coral customers.
