This bookie has copped another bashing after getting Manchester City's odds wrong


It's been a bad season for the bookies after Leicester's 5000-1 Premier League title success, and it seems it has got the oddsmakers frazzled.

A Lincoln branch of Ladbrokes clearly still seems to be feeling the effects of the Foxes stunning title win after it posted these odds outside it's office today.

As tempting as those odds are, the chances of City beating Barcelona tonight are zero.

Manuel Pellegrini's men are, of course, 320 miles away from Barcelona in Madrid as they prepare for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against Real at the Bernabeu.

The case of mistaken identity probably wouldn't go down so well with either set of Spanish fans - and after eagle-eyed passers-by spotted the error, the bookie changed the poster.

Barca fans might, however, be the only ones in the world that want City to go through tonight as they pray that an all-Madrid final does not eventuate for the second time in three years.

Twitter has been filled with anticipation for a Spanish capital city derby final, but Barca fans have a couple of reasons to be on City's side as Manuel Pellegrini's men look to defy the "actual" odds and go through.
