The Champions League semifinals are very difficult to predict, but very few punters can refrain from placing a wager on their favorite team in this late stage of the competition. Instead of staying away from the games, players can take advantage of the generous moneyback promotions offered by three prominent bookmakers for both semifinals.

BetVictor will return any bet placed for the first and last goalscorer, man of the match wagers and scorecast or correct score for both semifinals. All it takes is for a red card to be shown in either of these games and a refund will be issued, up to a total of £50 per user.

Paddy Power runs two distinct promotions for the semifinals, although the rules are very similar and they revolve around the player to score the last game in the match. For the Bayern vs Barcelona semifinal the stakes are returned on the first and last goalscorer, scorecast and correct score singles if Lionel Messi is the one to score the last goal. The next day the same rules apply and those who wager on the aforesaid markets will have their bets fully refunded if Cristiano Ronaldo scores the last in the match.

Those who find the moneyback offer attractive but already have an account with Ladbrokes, don’t need to switch sides overnight because their bookmaker of choice offers something very similar. All losing correct score, score cast and first goalscorer bets are refunded up to a maximum of £25 in the form of a free bet that is subject to some rollover requirements. For the first semifinal Lionel Messi is the player that needs to score the final goal, while in the Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo is the one who needs to produce the same performance.
