Manchester City head to Real Madrid for a highly-anticipated Champions League group clash on Tuesday night, and the bookmakers are lining up with free bet offers and special promotions.
City could not have asked for a much tougher start to the group stage of the competition, but a positive result at the Bernabeu would make them contenders to emulate Chelsea by going all the way and winning this competition.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid have endured a difficult start to the defence of their La Liga title and they will be eager to ensure they have no such struggles in Europe. Coach Jose Mourninho has won this competition twice before – with FC Porto and Inter Milan – and he is desperate for the hat-trick.
Both Real Madrid and Manchester City will be looking to make a winning start to the group phase so this is a big match for them both, and the bookmakers are upping the ante with a host of free bet offers and promotions that CLF readers can take full advantage of.
