Just 12 days after the Blues recorded a 1-0 Premier League victory at Etihad, Manchester City and Chelsea square off in the FA Cup fifth round clash, with both side confident of their chances of reaching the next stage. And to make things a bit more interesting, Ladbrokes are running a special promotion linked to the big game.
If any Brazilian player scores the first goal in the Manchester City v Chelsea match, Ladbrokes will refund all losing bets on correct score, first goalscorer and scorecast markets as a free bet up to £25. Brazilian players include Fernandinho, Willian, Oscar, Ramires and David Luiz.
Given that Manuel Pellegrini has little option but to rest his star players for the Champions League clash against Barcelona, Chelsea do look like they can enjoy another victory at Etihad, and nobody would be surprised if one of their four Brazilian players opens the scoring on Saturday afternoon.
