Ladbrokes customers will be pleased by Johnson finding the net

| 08.03.2012

Manchester City return to Portugal smarting over their defeat of Porto in the last round, and Adam Johnson can contribute to City’s quest for the final by scoring first away to Sporting Lisbon at 9/1.

Johnson was impressive for City at the weekend, laying on a goal for Mario Balotelli, whilst also creating a host of chances for his side, and he could go one better by notching himself here.

His pace and trickery out wide has often been a catalyst of clubs in European competition, and should he find the net at any time in Lisbon, he will earn cash back for Ladbrokes punters who have placed losing first scorer bets.

With this in mind, it could be worth getting behind favourite Sergio Aguero at 4/1 to hit the first goal, whilst Edin Dzeko could follow up his strike in the previous round by breaking the deadlock at 5/1.

Aleksandar Kolarov is also an interesting option, with the free-kick specialist 16/1 to notch first.
