Arsenal v Barcelona: £50 Risk-Free In-play at Bet365


IT’S back! Bet365 are doing their popular £50 risk-free in-play bet offer for Tueday’s Champions League clash between Arsenal and Barcelona at the Emirates Stadium.

If you place a pre-match bet on the game – up to £50 – which kicks off at 7.45pm then Bet365 will give you a risk-free inplay bet to the same stake.

To qualify for your risk-free inplay Bet365 bet, simply place a bet of up to £50 before kick-off. Then once the game starts place another bet – of the same stake – on any inplay market.

If your FIRST in-play bet loses Bet365 will refund this stake up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet (max £50).

You can try to do a low-risk pre-match bet and take a chance on the inplay – or do bets that guarantee profit. It’s up to you – but make sure you check the rules before having a bet.

Also, please note the £50 refund is in the form of cash after the match, it does not appear as a free bet inplay. If you are doing the offer and using the max stake of £50, you will need to place bets totalling £100 – that’s £50 pre-match and £50 inplay. If the inplay bet loses it will then be refunded a couple of hours after full-time.

My preference is to place a £50 pre-match bet on over 0.5 match goals at odds of around 1-16. I also cover the 0-0 draw with a bet of around £5 at 10-1 at another bookie. When doing this, bet on the ‘no scorer’ market rather than a 0-0 draw so you get paid if the only goal is an OG.

So for a maximum total spend of around £2 you are then covered to use your risk-free £50 inplay bet to try to win big, eg on a first or anytime scorer or correct score.

There are lots of other strategies so share yours here and full T & C’s can be found at Bet365.

    Place the In Play bet just after kick off and enjoy the game. I choose not use the cash-out option to close any winning position early. Finally, make sure you have enough cash in the Bet365 account for the second bet. Today that is a total of £173.

    How it works. Bet365 will match any pre match bet up to £50 with an in-play bet of the same amount. This means that you can cover all 3 results and guarantee a profit whatever happens.


    £120 Barcelona – Bet365 – 7/10

    £17 Draw – Betvictor – 16/5

    £42 Arsenal – PP/Hills/BetFred – 4/1

    In Play

    £50 Draw – Bet365 – I’ve assumed 11/4 as the price may shorten at kick off.

    If the draw bet loses, Bet365 will refund the £50 in cash by tomorrow. The total outlay is £232 although there will be a profit of at least £27 on ANY result.

      Think it works out like this home win u will spend £179 win £210 profit £31
      Draw spent 229 win 255 profit 29
      Away spent 179 win 216 profit 37
      Is this right

    £50 on Arteta to score first would be refunded as he’s out but bet365 still taking bets on this. Gives you a free £50 in play bet. I did this with Pato last week and checked with customer support before placing the bet to ensure it was OK to do so.

    If a place a pre match bet of £50 on over 2.5 goals at 13/20 to return £82.50
    Then an In play bet of £50 on under 2.5 goals at 5/4 to return £112.50
    Surely this means with only a 2 way out come I’m going to be either £32.50 up or £62.50 up?. Help

      Matty, you’d be £12.50 or £62.50 up

      • Profile photo of jacksonator
        jacksonator 8 months ago

        Scott is right, because if the latter one wins the £50 isnt refunded, so you win £112.50 but have spent £100

      But in the T&C doesn’t it state that the bet would be void if an individual places a bet which is gauranteed profit.
      Pre bet over 2.5
      Inplay bet under 2.5

      Or are they not so fussed on this?

    always so indecisive with these offers! and my first instincts are right and I don’t bet on it and it wins!

    play it safe or go big! it’s risk free so really people should go big!

    decisions decisions…..

    My instincts say Suarez first goal scorer, but with the other 2 (Messi & Neymar) easily able to score I’m not sure…..

    then you have first goal method free kick which is a big pay off and has some up on the PSG game…

    Race to 3 corners

    Cover with another bookie ,neither between 25/1 and 40/1 for £2
    Arsenal = £8 profit .
    Barca = £ 28 profit
    Neither = £30 profit

      I’m still waiting as well. Last week was quite quick but I’ve known it to take a few hours, I’ll query mine if I don’t have it by morning.

      Same. Given it seems to be across the board, I’ll give it a few hours before querying.

    • Profile photo of markus

      Still nothing here either. I’ve reached out to support this morning, but no word as of yet.

    From BET365 Support 1pm
    “Please accept our apologies, we are aware there are still some outstanding refunds to be credited, we are in the process of doing this, this should be done within the next 3 hours.”

      I contacted them 3 hours ago via chat, and when I was done jumping thru hoops and explaining the situation, I was “approved” and was told another division would handle it within the hour. Still nothing, so hopefully everyone will have it soon.
