PrettyGreen Challenges Manchester City and Saracens to ‘Overcome The Odds’

When our pals over at Betsafe asked us if we fancied helping them produce a content series involving some of the biggest sports stars in the country, it’s fair to say we said ‘yes’ pretty sharpish.


Launching today, the ‘Overcome The Odds’ series sees Premier League runaway leaders Manchester City face their biggest test of the season so far…in a range of challenges against current European Rugby champions, Saracens.


With Sergio Aguero, Fernandinho, Nicolas Otamendi and Danilo leading the line for City, and Jamie George, Schalk Burger, Ben Spencer and Richard Barrington representing the Sarries, the players were joined by ex-Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given and former Saracens player Jim Hamilton to act as captains for their respective teams.


The first episode, ‘The Drop’, features the Manchester City players are tasked with controlling balls of different shapes and sizes that have been dropped from nearly 20ft and trapping them into a tiny marked out space to complete the challenge.


Running throughout January, with a different episode launching every Monday and Thursday through Betsafe’s social channels, upcoming challenges include aiming kicks into a 20m high crane, taking shots at goal in the face of a wind machine, and catching balls through a wall of smoke.
