Messi Super Boost: Argentine maestro to break Bosnia deadlock

| 15.06.2014

For the next instalment of Ladbrokes’ sumptuous World Cup Super Boosts, what more could whet punters’ whistles than the chance to cash-in on Argentina’s modern-day Maradona to score first in their opening Group F encounter with Bosnia.

That’s correct, in case you hadn’t already guessed; it’s a certain Lionel Messi in question here.

And switched-on Ladbrokes customers should not miss out on this golden opportunity to profit from Messi’s brilliance as the offer will only last for a limited time.

Currently priced at 11/4 to score the first goal of his country’s World Cup campaign against Bosnia in Group F, punters will be able to back the Barcelona star at greatly enhanced odds of 5/1.

However, this price will only be available from kick-off until the first goal goes in during Switzerland’s Group E curtain raiser against Ecuador.

A bit like England’s own number 10, (except Wayne Rooney is shy of the four Ballon d’Ors) Messi has drawn criticism from some quarters for failing to sprinkle his magic on the biggest stage of all, so far.

But that’s all about to change as the little magician gears up to silence the doubters and take this World Cup by storm for the 4/1 second favourites for glory in Brazil.

Thought to have been having somewhat of a low-key season by his standards Messi still fired in an incredible 36 goals in all competitions in just shy of 40 appearances.

Meanwhile his latest strike for his country which arrived in the very last friendly before the finals began, took arguably the greatest player of all time onto 38 goals from 86 caps.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
