After Barcelona’s defeat to Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu, singer Drake became a little less a millionaire. This was because the artist made a multiple bet on the victories of Arsenal, who played their part by beating Leeds United 1-0, and Barcelona, who lost to their biggest rivals in Spain. Drake bet about R$ 4.4 million this Sunday.

Finished early, Arsenal’s game kept the artist’s bet alive. If Barcelona beat Real Madrid away from home, he would earn BRL 20.7 million.
Although complicated, the bet on the culés had a good reason. Barcelona entered into commercial action with the master sponsor and owner of the Camp Nou naming rights, the Spotify brand, with a shirt in reference to the brand beaten by Drake in the music app.
On the platform, the artist has surpassed 50 billion streams. Therefore, instead of the traditional Spotify logo on the shirt, the Barcelona team wore a shirt with the “Ovo” owl, Drake’s brand, in “El Clásico”.
However, Carlo Ancelotti’s team did not give space to Xavi Hernandez’s team and won 3-1. Benzema, Valverde and Rodrygo, from a penalty, scored for the Merengues. Ferran Torres decreased for the Blaugrana team.

Author of the goal that sealed the victory of Real Madrid, the Brazilian Rodrygo used social networks to play with the indirect participation of the artist in the match.
In the photo he published after the classic, he appears celebrating his goal with the caption “God’s Plan”, the name of one of Drake’s best-known songs.
The song has more than one and a half billion views on YouTube and two billion on Spotify, Barcelona’s sponsor.
