We already know that over the next few months, Manchester City and Liverpool will go head to head to decide the destiny of at least one, possibly two or even three major football trophies this season.

The fate of the two teams could well be decided over the forthcoming week, starting with Sunday afternoon’s game at the Etihad in the Premier League, where the two teams will clash with City just one point ahead of Liverpool in the title race.

Then next weekend, the two will meet again, this time at Wembley in the first of the two FA Cup Semi Final ties being played next weekend (with Chelsea facing Crystal Palace in the other semifinal on Sunday).

There is also the small matter of the Champions League where both City and Liverpool recorded key wins in the week, City a 1-0 home win over Atletico Madrid, while Liverpool were 3-1 away winners at Benfica.

The two won’t meet in the semifinals, assuming they reach that stage, but if they can beat their semifinal opponents, then they could well meet in the Champions League Final

The action all starts this Sunday and to enhance the experience for their new and eligible customers, bet365 Sport is offering a free £5 bet on the Man City v Liverpool clash.

Claiming The Bet365 Free £5 Bet On Man City V Liverpool Offer

To claim this offer, and if you are not yet a customer with bet365, then simply sign up with the site before Sunday’s game kicks off (4.30pm UK Time) and you should then be eligible to receive the free £5 bet on the game.

However, you will probably want a little time to peruse the markets available to place your bet, so signing up well in advance of kick off is a very smart move.

If you are already a bet365 customer and are eligible for the offer, then you can access your free bet immediately.

Check your email for a message from bet365 about your free bet, or also check your inbox on the bet365 site. Don’t worry though as you don’t need the message in order to receive the offer if your eligible, you can head straight over to the markets for the Man City v Liverpool game and check if the offer is available to you.

You can do that by starting the process to place your bet as detailed below.

Placing Your Bet365 Free £5 Bet

To place your free bet offer, ensure you are logged in to your bet365 account and head over to the markets for the Man City v Liverpool game taking place on Sunday.

The good news is that you are free to use your £5 bet on any pre-match single or Bet Builder bet that is based on the game.

To use the bet, find the bet you want to back and then add it to your bet slip. Once you have done that, click on the bet slip to open it in the main screen, if it is not already on the screen.

From here, if you are eligible for the free bet, you will see an option to use the free £5 bet available to you. Click the check box to select this option and then click on the Place Bet button.

And that is all you need to do. Your bet is now placed on the game and you can sit back and watch the game to see whether it turns into a winner or not for you!

If My Free £5 Bet Is A Winner, What Happens?

So your bet was a winner then? Congratulations! Now what happens?

Well, as is always the case with bet365, once the game has been completed and your free bet has been declared as a winner, then you will receive your winnings.

Now with the vast majority of free bet offers nowadays, you will not receive your initial free bet stake returned with your winnings, as you would when making a bet with cash in your account.

So what this means is if you placed your free bet on a market that was valued at odds of 5/1, then you would receive back £25 in winnings, but not the £5 free bet stake.

However, the good news is that your £25 winnings are not subject to any form of wagering requirement and are yours to do with what you wish, including withdrawing the cash if you so choose. Those winnings are paid to you in cash, not bonuses.

Do We Have Any Tips For The Man City V Liverpool Game?

Sunday’s game does promise to be an absolutely vital one in the race for the Premier League title. City are a point ahead of Liverpool both teams having played 30 games, and a win for the home side would give them a likely unassailable 4 point lead over the Reds.

However, back in January, Liverpool were 14-points behind City at one point and over the last couple of months, the Reds have won nine Premier League games in a row, as well as eight away games in a row in all competitions, to close that gap down to just one point.

City have slipped up in a couple of games of late, losing to Spurs 3-2 at home and drawing 0-0 at Crystal Palace and they had to work incredibly hard to beat Atletico Madrid 1-0 at the Etihad on Tuesday Night in the Champions League.

Liverpool were also made to work hard, but came back from the trip to Lisbon to face Benfica with a 3-1 win with the home leg still to come.

So while form and history may just favour City, who have not lost any of their last four against Liverpool and have lost just one of the last eight games to the Reds, current form does seem to favour the away team.

However, with so much at stake, I think that both teams will feel avoiding losing is the key to the game here and when that happens, I always think the draw at 11/4 is the best value option.
