Ladbrokes’ offering safety net on the Man City game

Man City must beat Ajax as a matter of imperative if they wish to maintain their frail hopes of Champions League qualification but, should they fail, Ladbrokes are offering punters an opportunity to recoup their losses.

If City take the lead at any point of the match, but fail to win, all losing first goalscorer bets will be refunded as a free bet. They’ve taken the lead twice already in the Champions League before going on to lose and, with this offer set to bail you out, back Yaya Toure to notch the opener at 8/1.

The dynamic midfielder has scored many an important goal in his City career to date and his surging runs into the penalty area mean he’s always a likely candidate to stick one away.

The Citizens’ short-priced forwards are worth overlooking with this money back offer in place, partly because it’s difficult to guess which will play and in what position, but prices such as 7/2 for Sergio Aguero are too short for substantial pay out when the amount of risk involved is reduced.
