Ozil and Samaras receive Champions League price boosts!

| 22.10.2013

Punters should not miss this opportunity to back either Arsenal’s midfield magician Mesut Ozil scoring first against Borussia Dortmund or, Celtic’s big game Greek Georgios Samaras notching first at home to Ajax in their club’s respective televised Champions League games.

Ladbrokes are at it again folks, with their tantalising price boosts ahead of matchday three of the Champions League.

Arsenal are taking chunks out of all-comers at present with their slick brand of passing football and the one man at the heart of it all is German sensation Ozil.

Ahead of the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s Dortmund side, the former Real Madrid star has had his odds to score the first goal bumped out to 10/1 from 6/1.

And for a man in such devastating form for both club and country, this is a daring move indeed by the bookmakers.

Ozil not only bagged a majestic opener in the Gunners last Champions League game against Napoli at the Emirates, but has since gone on to score four more in as many intervening fixtures, including a double versus Norwich.

Meanwhile, Celtic have a must-win game at home to fellow Group H strugglers Ajax, if they are to have any hope of keeping any form of European football at Parkhead this season.

In Samaras, though, the Scottish champions have a man for the big occasions and a man with boosted odds too, out from 6/1 to 8/1 to break Dutch resistance first.

The Greek international may not have scored since bagging a hat-trick against Kilmarnock last month, but he notched five Champions League goals on the way to the round-of-16 with Celtic last season.
