Ladbrokes top price on Gomez continuing Golden Boot charge
Only two players average better than a goal per game in this year’s Champions League, and as one of them, Mario Gomez is massive at 11/5 to score at the Bernabeu tonight.
The imposing German striker has notched 12 times in just ten European outings this term, and will be spurred on by the prospect of overhauling 14-goal Lionel Messi to claim the tournament’s Golden Boot award.
A final at the Allianz Arena awaits Bayern Munich should they overcome a staunch task away to Real Madrid, and Gomez will fancy his chances of finding the net in this game to fire his side to a dream home tie with Chelsea.
Gomez it was who hit the winner in the first leg of this Champions League semi-final, and having proved he can score against Los Blancos, he will not be phased by the Bernabeu crowd in his efforts to do so again.
40 goals in all competitions this campaign have certified the forward as one of the world’s hottest attacking talents, and he will be eager to overshadow the home side’s superstar Cristiano Ronaldo as he aims to better Messi’s seasonal European record.
The German is a 7/1 shot to break the deadlock at Santiago Bernabeu, and that may attract punters, though you could do a lot worse than get behind the striker to score at any time, for which our 11/5 price will not be beaten.
Backers of Gomez will take confidence from Bayern’s strong recent record against their Spanish opponents also, with the Bavarian outfit coming out on top in two of the past three meetings.
Bayern have also registered during four of their past five encounters against the La Liga side, including two on their last visit to Spain.
With the Germans looking good to find the net again tonight, and Gomez their man source of goals, he looks unmissable at that top-price 11/5 to score at any time.
