Real Madrid man boosted to strike in a France win v Nigeria

| 25.06.2014

France are guaranteed a spot in the last 16 of the World Cup providing the final round of fixtures in Group E doesn’t go completely goal crazy.

With two wins and a plus-six goal difference to their name so far, the French can be pretty confident that their spot in the knockout stages of the tournament is safe.

The one constant in the two previous victories they’ve secured in this group has been Karim Benzema, who has scored three goals in the tournament so far and in both previous matches.

Now, Ladbrokes have given customers the chance to back the Real Madrid man scoring in a French win over Ecuador at boosted odds.

From the second Argentina’s game with Nigeria kicks off until the moment that game sees its first goal, the firm will boost that outcome from 6/4 to 3/1.

Considering the form of both the man and the nation, then it’d be folly not to take up such a generous special offer.

At this World Cup and in the run up to it Benzema has been in scoring touch.

Along with the three he’s bagged at the finals, he added a further six in the eight matches prior to this summer’s footballing festivities.

While the chances of the Los Blancos front man scoring in the blue shirt of his nation are high, the probability of the side winning are equally so.

In five of those eight outings in which the 26-year-old found the net prior to the World Cup, France claimed victory, making the boosted 3/1 odds offered even more tempting.

There’s a chance that the offer could be available for quite a stretch of the Argentina v Nigeria clash, with Lionel Messi’s men struggling to break down Group F’s lesser opponents previously in the tournament.
