Manchester City v Liverpool: Join Ladbrokes for 25/1 a Goal to be Scored

+18 / play responsibly / T&C apply

It’s not been the best of weeks for Manchester City and following their 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the first leg of this Champions League tie, Pep Guardiola’s men failed to secure the Premier League title due to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of bitter rivals Manchester United.

The Premier League should still be a formality but it will be tough for City to overcome that three goal deficit when Liverpool arrive in Manchester for Tuesday’s second leg. It’s a game with lots of potential in the standard betting markets but few, if any, options will carry as much value as this new customer offer from Ladbrokes.

One Goal Needed

Under the terms of the deal, enhanced odds of 25/1 are on the line and we just need one goal or more to trigger them. The two sides are among the biggest scorers in Europe right now so it has potential but how does it stack up to the standard betting markets?

In the outright betting, Liverpool are favourites to qualify for the semi finals at a top price of 3/19 with 188Bet although there could be some interest in Manchester City at a tempting 5/1 with William Hill. Meanwhile, the promotional bet from Ladbrokes is the equivalent to staking over the 0.5 goal line and this would come in at a short best of 1/66 with Sun Bets.

Clearly there is some potential with this deal so let’s take a look in greater detail.

Next Steps

As this is for new customers to Ladbrokes the first step involves taking care of that new account. Registration is very fast and simple and you can head from here to enter some very basic information, remembering to type in the Promo Code GOAL when prompted to do so.

Now we need some funds in order to cover that bet so, please deposit at least £5.00 into that new account using a debit or credit card. The money should then clear straight away and you’re free to make the bet in question.

Staking and Returns

If you’re signed in, the funds should be showing in the top right hand corner of the home page and you can then bet the fixed amount of £1.00 on this promotional bet of at least one goal to be scored when Manchester City play Liverpool in their Champions League quarter final second leg on Tuesday April 10, 2018.

The game kicks off at 19:45 local time and if we see at least one goal in the 90 minutes, payment will be issued in a two step process with an initial return being paid in cash, based on Ladbrokes’ standard market price for Over 0.5 goals.

The balance, up to that price boosted sum of 25/1 will then come back as free bet tokens. The cash element is expected to hit your account shortly after the final whistle while the tokens will follow in 24 hours’ time.

There is an alternative, consolation element because, if the game finishes in a goalless draw, Ladbrokes will give you a free bet token worth £5.00.

Those are the significant points of this summary but you are free to check them in full on the Ladbrokes offers page and please note that those free bet tokens must be used within four days before they expire.

Potent Pairing

Liverpool drew a rare blank against Everton in the Premier League last time out but they are one of the most potent teams in the division and in their last six matches have scored a respectable 11 goals.

In the same period, Manchester City have found the net on nine occasions so while the recent average is down on their overall campaigns, those are strong indicators. It’s not a certain bet but the stats are encouraging and with 25/1 up for grabs, this could be worth pursuing for new Ladbrokes customers.
