Manchester City are chasing a monumental treble of trophies, while Liverpool have a trophy secured in their bid for an unprecedented quadruple.
And Sunday’s titanic clash will go a long way towards deciding who will finish top of the Premier League and win the title, with the visitors one point behind Pep Guardiola’s side.
To celebrate this, Bet365 have announced plans to give a £5 free bet to customers who wager on the game.
City come into the match off the back of a tough 1-0 win over Diego Simeone’s stubborn Atletico Madrid side. Kevin de Bruyne’s second half spelled the difference between the two teams on the night, and the Belgian midfielder is 7/1 to open the scoring on Sunday afternoon at the Etihad.
Liverpool’s trip to Benfica was too close for comfort despite the 3-1 scoreline suggesting otherwise. Luis Diaz’s late goal gave Liverpool a two-goal cushion, and the Colombian star is 3/1 to score at any time against Manchester City.
This match at The Etihad has seen 21 goals in the last six Premier League games, and it’s no wonder both teams to score are currently priced at 8/13.
With Mo Salah, Phil Foden, Sadio Mane, Raheem Sterling, Luis Diaz, Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez either starting or coming off the bench, it’s easy to see why this game has become the most anticipated in years.
The 2-2 draw at Anfield earlier this season was one of the highest quality Premier League games of the season, and now the rivals are gearing up for a showdown that will have direct implications for who ultimately becomes champion.
Bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “It is without a doubt the biggest weekend on this year’s sporting calendar with the Grand National, The Masters at Augusta and the Premier League blockbuster between Manchester City and Liverpool.
“To celebrate this we have given all new and eligible customers a £5 free bet on the biggest Premier League game in recent memory.
“We have two of the best coaches in the world with two of the best teams going toe-to-toe. Will Kevin de Bruyne’s brilliance shine in such a monumental match or will Egyptian King Mohamed Salah find his shooting boots just in time to put Liverpool on pole position to claim their Premier League crown?
“It is a match that cannot be lost.
“We expect our £5 free bet offer to prove extremely popular with customers, many of whom are looking to the Bet365 Bet Builder markets, or our Bet Boosts, for additional value.
“I’ll be keeping an eye on the game and the trade book, in what could be the highest-stakes game of the season! Good luck to all our customers.”
