You are not betting on a team to win.. It doesn’t matter which team wins the game, or even if it ends in a draw.
All that is required for the Betfred Goals Galore bet to be successful is that both teams score.
The score itself is totally irelevent.. As long as both teams score at least 1 goal the bet is complete. As Betfred say ‘When both teams score it’s Goals Galore’
