Money back if red card shown in Merseyside derby

Twelfth-place Everton will be hosting bitter rivals and cross town neighbours Liverpool, who sit in eighth position in the English Premier League, at Goodison Park in the Merseyside Derby this Saturday, February 7. These two sides have produced some memorable classics throughout the years and there’s a good chance this will be another hard-fought battle. The Merseyside Derby is always a tough game to predict and encounters at Goodison Park are usually pretty close on the scoreboard. The two sides have met there 95 times in league games with Everton winning 34 matches to Liverpool’s 32 and the other 29 have ended in draws.

The derby is often a rough and tumble affair and red cards have certainly been produced in these intense contests in the past. This is why sportsbook BetVictor is offering a special promotion called the Red Card Refund. BetVictor will refund losing First/Last/Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time, Scorecast or Spincast wafers as a free bet up to a maximum of 10 pounds/euros if there’s a red card in the game. The wager needs to be a single bet and placed before the kickoff. Visit BetVictor for the full details.

Overall there have been 20 red cards shown in Merseyside Derbies. Looking back at recent encounters, Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell, who now plays for Sunderland, was given a red card in the 23rd minute for a dirty challenge on Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, who’s now with Barcelona of the Spanish La Liga. Rodwell appealed the decision by referee Martin Atkinson shortly after and the card was rescinded. Back in February of 2010 there were a pair of red cards shown in the match at Anfield. Liverpool defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos was sent off the pitch for an early shower and so was Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva was also sent off in an FA Cup replay Merseyside Derby and his side was beaten in extra time with just 10 men on the pitch. Three Everton players were also sent off the pitch in a pair of games at Goodison Park in the fall of 2007 and 2008. The referee in Saturday’s game will be Anthony Taylor, but don’t let him ruin your wager on the contest by pulling out a red card. Anything can happen when these two teams get together and an ideal way insure your wager is with the BetVictor Red Card Refund money-back promotion.
