Sporting Index – Barcelona v Bayern Munich Offer

It’s Barcelona v Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and you don’t want to miss this Sporting Index offer! Place a £10.00+ pre-match bet on the ‘First Goalscorer’ market, and if it loses, you’ll receive a £10.00 free bet for the World Cup 2022. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives you a profit of £3.00 and here’s how…

Key terms

  • Applies to single pre-match bets on the ‘First Goalscorer‘ market for Barcelona v Bayern Munich (20:00 on Wednesday 26th October 2022).
  • Applies to your first bet only.
  • Minimum stake of £10.00.
  • If your bet loses, a £10.00 free bet will be added to your World Cup free bet balance.
  • If eligible, your free bet will be credited by midday on Thursday 24th November 2022.
  • The free bet will be valid for 2 days.
  • The free bet stake will not be returned with any winnings.

Barcelona v Bayern Munich is the second of five selected football matches on which you can qualify for a £10.00 World Cup free bet. If you place a qualifying bet on all five matches, no matter the outcome, an extra £10.00 free bet will be added to your World Cup free bet balance.

Qualifying bet

If your bet loses, your stake will be refunded as a free bet, so you can treat this as a ‘Money back if bet loses‘ offer.

At the time of writing, the back and lay odds aren’t tight enough. ‘Ousmane Dembele‘ is back odds of 9.00 (8/1). I’ll use lay odds of 15.50 to illustrate how this offer works. I’ll update the bottom of the post with a genuine selection after the match.

Either exchange works for this offer

Betfair and Smarkets are both great options for this offer. If you’ve not used one of them, now is a great time to give them a try.

  • 2% commission for all new signups
  • 0% commission for 60 days

You can work out your lay stake using the ‘Money Back if Bet Loses‘ setting on my Matched Betting Calculator. You can enter £8.00 as your ‘Cashback’ figure as this is the amount you can expect to convert your £10.00 free bet into, should your bet lose.
