Another Iniesta Barcelona goal could mean refunds for punters

| 07.03.2012

Andres Iniesta opened the scoring for Barcelona in their latest La Liga success at home to Sporting Gijon and if he can score again against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League, refunds could be on offer to Ladbrokes punters.

If Iniesta strikes in the 90 minutes against Leverkusen, all losing first goalscorer bets on the second leg of the last-16 encounter will be refunded.

The chances of the Spanish midfielder finding the target are fairly strong given that they have scored at least three goals in five of their seven Champions League fixtures this season.

Furthermore, they have netted 15 in their last five games in league and cup and can call upon home advantage against Leverkusen.

Because of the nature of the offer, it may pay to back one of the bigger-priced Barcelona players to score first.

Xavi has scored four goals in his last eight games and is 8/1 to break the deadlock, while Daniel Alves is 14/1 and never one to turn down the opportunity to get forward from defence.
