It is the return of the UEFA Champions League this week and among the Premier League representatives in his year’s tournament, you have the North London duo of Arsenal and Tottenham, who finished second and third respectively in last season’s Premier League. This week, bookmaker Paddy Power are celebrating the return of the tournament by focusing in the games that are head in the week for the Gunners and the Lilywhites.
In the Premier League this season Paddy Power have been running a special promotion where punters can get a lost stake refund on a match outright, should their selection be losing at half time in the top flight fixture. This product has been applied to the first live televised Premier League game on a Saturday and a Sunday and the great news is that they are extending it over to the UEFA Champions League for the group stage.
This is a promotion which will run through to December 7th, so all group stage Match Days will be covered. What they are doing for this is not quite the same in terms of applying the very same offer to the first live televised UEFA Champions League match on a Tuesday and a Wednesday (because kick off times are the same) they are instead selecting a game for each of the days of the game days in the competition.
So now for one televised Champions League Group Stage match every Group Match Day back a team to win pre-match and get a free bet if they are losing at half time. The offer does apply to pre-match win singles on and you have to pick a match winner as the draw selection doesn’t count. There is a maximum of a free £25 bet per customer that can come back through this offer.
In order to ring in the new season of Premier League football, this week, Paddy Power have stuck the offer on two England v France fixtures. On Tuesday, the coverage will apply to PSG v Arsenal and to Wednesday night’s Tottenham v Monaco fixture from the Champions League. Arsenal are going as underdogs for their battle out in the City of Lights and two great records come together in this one. Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 12 games in France, winning their last seven, but PSG have lost just one of their last 36 European home matches (against Barcelona).
As for Tottenham, they are kicking off as favourites at Wembley against Monaco. The Lilywhite are holding a record of four wins from four previous home games against French opposition, which includes their 4-1 demolition of Monaco in last season’s UEFA Europa League group stage. Monaco though have gotten off to a great start to the new season and they recently posted a league victory over PSG.
