Betfair are offering new customers the opportunity to back either side in Tuesday's European clash at Stamford Bridge at a huge enhanced price

There is a superb Champions League clash in the offing on Tuesday evening as Premier League champions Chelsea take on La Liga leaders Barcelona.

The hosts are usually around 13/5 (3.60) to claim a vital first leg lead, but Betfair are offering new customers the chance to back the Blues at a massive 50/1 (51.0) when opening a new account, plus up to £100 in free bets too.

To take advantage of this enhanced price, or the one on Barcelona, simply register using the link provided using promo code ZFBDLI. Back your choice of team in the "Match Odds" market at the enhanced price and get the boosted odds if they come out on top. £1 max bet. Winnings paid as free bets. T&Cs apply.

These two sides know each other well. They're squaring off for the 13th time in the Champions League, and despite having not met since April 2012, this is still the fifth-most played fixture in the competition.

Chelsea are unbeaten in their previous seven European clashes against the Catalan giants too, albeit five of those have finished all square. Given Barca's impressive form though, Antonio Conte may feel his side need an advantage to take to the Camp Nou if they're to have a good chance of progressing to the quarter finals.

Barcelona are usually 11/10 (2.10) to win this clash but the 25/1 (26.0) for new Betfair customers will surely appeal to those who believe there's value in the away win here.

Unbeaten in the group stage, Ernesto Valverde's men have been able to take their impressive La Liga form (Won 19 Drawn 5) into this competition and are once again one of the frontrunners in the outright market, although it's a very open competition with Manchester City leading the way.

Yet to taste defeat domestically either, breaking down a defence that has only conceded 11 times in 24 league matches this term won't be easy for the Premier League side, but an in-form Eden Hazard will surely test the visitors' back-line. Hazard has been unstoppable in the last couple of matches and the Belgian international could be the key to any success for the hosts.

Regardless of which side you're backing, the choice of either 50/1 (51.0) on Chelsea or 25/1 (26.0) on Barcelona are sure to be popular for anyone opening a new Betfair account ahead of a fantastic midweek fixture list.

New customer offer, max stake £1, all winnings paid in free bets, valid for 7 days, only deposits with cards/PayPal count, Exchange and multiple bets excluded. T&C's Apply.
