Refunds all round if Man City win FA Cup clash with Chelsea

| 12.04.2013

Something has got to give in the FA Cup Wembley semi final between Chelsea and Manchester City.

For Chelsea, they are unbeaten in 29 FA Cup games, excluding penalty shoot-outs, since Kayode Odejayi’s solitary goal sent Barnsley through in a quarter-final shock in 2008.

Furthermore, they have never been beaten in all seven of their previous FA Cup clashes at the new Wembley.

For Man City, not only is this the last trophy that Roberto Mancini can guide them to this season, but they have also made it to the last four without conceding a goal.

Not since Everton back in 1966 have a side reached the final with a perfect FA Cup clean sheet record and Man City have additionally shut out Chelsea in both Premier League meetings this season.

These facts make picking a winner that bit tougher, but Ladbrokes have made life easier through the juiciest of juicy offers.

Should Man City beat Chelsea in the 90 minutes, then every losing bet on every market in the game will be refunded as a free bet.

The promotion includes all bets up to £25 and is available online, via mobile, over the phone or in shops.

See here for a full list of terms and conditions relating to the offer.

Carlos Tevez’ form in the FA Cup this season is another reason why punters may want to chance their arm in some of the smaller markets.

Tevez has five goals in just four FA Cup appearances this season and a continuation of this level of return will make Man City hard to beat. He is 7/4 to score at any time in the 90 minutes.

Man City head into the semi final as slight favourites to come out on top in the 90 minutes at 11/8, with Chelsea priced at 2/1 and the draw at 9/4.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
