William Hill are offering £40 in free bets to new customers if they bet £10 on Barcelona vs Manchester United in the Europa League on Thursday.
New customers who sign up and bet £10 can claim £40 in free bets in the first knockout round of the Europa League tie between the European giants at the Camp Nou.
Two of world football’s biggest clubs go head-to-head in the Europa League first knockout round, emphasising just how far both have fallen.
For a second consecutive season, Barcelona have been eliminated in the Champions League at the group stage.
Xavi’s team have been almost flawless in La Liga however, winning 11 of 12 since their sole defeat against Real Madrid in mid-October.
This leaves Barça eight points clear at the top of the table, well on course for their first title in four season. Given their advantageous position in La Liga, Xavi’s side are going all out to win the Europa League, for both financial and sporting reasons.
Here though, they’ve been given a nightmare draw, up against one of the form sides in all of Europe.
Manchester United did win five of six Europa League group matches, but finished below Real Sociedad on goal difference, failing to score once more in San Sebastián on the final matchday.
So, rather than serenely booking their place in the round of 16, the Red Devils will come up against the side that thwarted them in the 2009 and 2011 Champions League Finals.
These days, under Erik ten Hag, they are getting back to their best, winning seven of their last ten Premier League engagements, most-recently beating Leeds on Sunday.
