At least one betting house will be paying out on a Barcelona win at the Estadio Mestalla on Sunday.
The furore surrounding Lionel Messi’s ‘ghost goal’ will go on for some while yet, but with it being so obvious that a goal was actually scored, some punters will be happy.
A bookmaker in England considered that the goal was a perfectly valid one and will also pay out on Messi being first scorer against Valencia.
In a statement, the bookmaker confirmed their stance on the matter.
“In a gesture of good will and justice to our clients, we will not only pay the benefits to those who bet for the draw, but also those who bet on a Barcelona win.”
In addition, bets on Rodrigo as first scorer will be paid too.
