Paddy Power will refund losing first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets if the match ends as a draw.
The return of the Champions League was met with enthusiasm by punters and Europe’s best club competition provided both great entertainment and winners galore.
Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Juventus and Celtic’s 0-0 stalemate against Benfica triggered Paddy Power refunding losing bets on first and last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on those particular matches.
The blockbuster matches do not stop there though, this weekend sees Liverpool host Manchester United in the Premier League and the Irish bookmaker have extended their money back offer if Sunday’s match finishes as a draw.
The bookmakers are struggling to split the two sides, with Manchester United just shading favouritism at 8/5 (2.6), Liverpool are available at 9/5 (2.8) and the draw is an 11/5 (3.2) shot. Anfield has seen plenty of draws over the last season or so, with nine of last season’s Premier League games ending all square and two of the last three competitive games finishing level.
The first goalscorer market is often a popular choice in such big matches, with Robin van Persie leading the way at 4/1 (5.0) and Luis Suarez available at 13/2 (7.5) for the hosts.
One of Brendan Rodgers’ summer signings Fabio Borini will be expected to provide a significant goals contribution during the season and what better time to score his first competitive goal for the Reds than against their bitter rivals?
He’s an industry best 10/1 (11.0) to score first so it is worth backing him with the Irish bookmaker to take advantage of a best price and also the money back offer.
Shinji Kagawa is also a 10/1 (11.0) shot to break the deadlock on Sunday and Raheem Stirling, who has been the subject of plenty of media attention since his arrival in the first team, is a long shot to strike first, priced at 12/1 (13.0).
The last meeting between these two sides ended in a 2-1 victory for United, a repeat of that correct scoreline is available at 17/2 (9.50). A reverse in favour of the home side is also a 17/2 (9.50) shot.
