Portugal v Spain: Join Coral for 25/1 a Yellow Card

The highlight of the opening group games at Russia 2018 comes along on Friday as Spain take on Portugal in Sochi – kick off 7pm, UK time. Spain had been odds on favourites to win and although the 2010 world cup winners have drifted since the sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui, they they still head the result market.

Portugal are the outside bet but for new customers to Coral who are undecided as to where to place their money, this promotion could provide an answer. Enhanced odds of 25/1 are on the table here and all we need for them to land is at least one yellow card in the match.

Market Options

On Wednesday morning Spain were an odds on chance to win this game but following the dramatic events surrounding Lopetegui, they are now out to best odds of 57/50 with MarathonBet. The draw is at a top price of 23/10 with Unibet while victory for Portugal concludes this market at a best of 10/3.

As for discipline betting, there is no current market for a single yellow. Bookings are so common in any match that the prices would be prohibitively short if they did appear but you can get markets on cards being shown for specific players.

The favourite here won’t surprise too many people: Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos leads the way at best odds of 9/5 with Unibet to be shown any card in this match. All of those numbers could provide some value but they also underline the potential in this Coral offer so, if you want to take it up, here’s what happens next.

Get on Board

Remember, this deal is specifically for new customers to Coral and if you don’t have an account here you will need to head over and complete the sign up process. This is swift and easy as it only requires some basic information and you will be welcomed on board in a very short space of time.

From here, it’s over to the cashier’s page to add some funds so please deposit at least £5.00 using a debit or credit card. Coral exclude most eWallets from this offer, including Skrill, Neteller and PaySafe and that’s why we recommend picking your preferred plastic.

The money should clear straight away and then you can place your bets.

Betting and Getting Paid Out

With funds at the ready, stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on this promotional bet of at least one yellow card to be issued when Spain play Portugal in Sochi on Friday June 15. Watch it all live on TV if you like but as long as we get at least one yellow card in that match, a two-part payment process will be triggered.

In the first part, a profit will be paid in cash, based on a standard market price for one booking as defined by Coral. This will arrive straight after the game and will be followed within 24 hours by a series of free bet tokens which will top your winnings up to the 25/1 price boost.

If, however, we were to see no yellow cards in the game, the bet would fail but you can then expect to receive a free bet token worth £5.00 as a consolation. Please do note that those free bet tokens must be used within 4 days or they will expire and while that is a complete summary of the significant points, you can check all terms and conditions as they appear in full on the Coral promos page.


If we take Spain’s last game before the World Cup against Tunisia, we saw two yellow cards over the 90 minutes. That’s fairly standard for any match but bear in mind that this was a friendly where there was no bearing on the result.

There’s no guarantee but a booking is one of the more likely occurrences in football and this is therefore a strong offer with excellent enhanced odds for new Coral customers.
