Drake, one of the most popular singers in the world has enjoyed massive success in the music industry. The Canadian singer however is also very active in other fields and often hoards the limelight for his extravagant lifestyle.
Quite frequently the 35-year-old is in the news for his betting as well. In the past, the Canadian rapper won a staggering £3m when he backed British MMA superstars Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann earlier this year. He however then lost £368k after Leon Edwards knocked Kamaru Usman out in the UFC 278.
Ahead of the weekend football games, Drake has now bet £537,000 on Arsenal and Barcelona matches and could win over £2.5million if the games go according to his bets.
Drake’s bet on Arsenal and Barcelona:
Arsenal play Leeds United in the Premier League while Barcelona would travel to Santiago Bernabeu to play against Real Madrid. Arsenal sit at top of the Premier League table having achieved 25 points in 10 matches. The London club under Mikel Arteta have started incredibly well this season and have eyes set on the Premier League trophy.
Barcelona meanwhile will play against Real Madrid in what is called the EL Classico. The Catalan club recently drew 3-3 against Inter, a game which diminished their chances of advancing into the next round.
Real Madrid meanwhile sit at second in La Liga with 22 points in eight matches. Both the Spanish teams have a similar number of points but Barcelona pip the Madrid team by a goal difference. Real Madrid meanwhile sit at the top in their Group F table with 10 points in four matches. They are the current Champions League holders and would be looking to get a back to back wins.
