Jose Mourinho called it the game the world is waiting for, while Sky are labelling it the perfect match – and there is no doubting that Real Madrid v Manchester United is one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures of the season.
As you would expect considering our strong links with both teams, we here at bwinbetting are pretty excited about the prospect of arguably the world’s two biggest clubs locking horns in a Champions League last-16 tie.
And as well as offering a whopping 323 markets at the time of writing on Wednesday’s first leg at the Bernabeu, we are bringing punters and fans of both clubs some cracking special offers too.
For example, we will be refunding all losing bets on correct score, total goals and to score two or more goals markets if Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney both score, which is an offer registered bwin players (or new customers) can snap up right here.
If you don’t fancy that option, you could also get your money back on losing correct score and total goals bets if United manage to win more corners than Real on the night here.
In addition, we have a wide range of enhanced odds markets, with Real and United successes both paired up in doubles and trebles with some of the other last-16 hopefuls.
But perhaps the most intriguing of these is our Cristiano Ronaldo v Robin van Persie goalscoring head-to-head, with boosted prices on all three eventualities.
Ronaldo is rated as an 11/10 chance to outscore the Dutchman (compared to 19/20 in the normal match markets), while a draw is at 8/5 (normally 29/20) and Van Persie is a lengthy-looking 4/1 (rather than 15/4) to come out on top.
With the battle between the two star men likely to play a key role in defining the outcome at the Bernabeu, our tipsters have also taken a closer look at who is likely to prevail – an article you can read here.
By the same token, we also have enhanced odds on the Ronaldo v Rooney goalscoring tussle, with the Portuguese even money to triumph, the tie at 33/20 and the former Everton striker a 9/2 chance to prevail.
Both of these enhanced goalscorer markets can be found here.
And finally, if you missed it yesterday, there is also an incredible opportunity to win two VIP tickets to the return leg at Old Trafford in three weeks’ time – find out more right here.
