World Cup goalscorer boost: Muller and Rodriguez backed to star

| 03.07.2014

Lionel Messi leads the way in the outright betting for top scorer at the World Cup but, ever the company with their fingers on the pulse in Brazil, Ladbrokes has a price boost offer backing the two true in-form forwards of the tournament.

The Argentine may have supplied the killer pass for Angel Di Maria’s goal but with a defensively-sound Belgium team who have yet to ship a goal from open play at this World Cup in their way it could be a quiet day at the office for the Barcelona star.

Instead, we are picking out the dynamic non-duo of Thomas Muller and James Rodriguez to help you rake in the cash with goals in their respective quarter-finals.

The German is the first up at 5pm on Friday with a tricky encounter against France to contend with.

Fortunately, in Muller, Die Mannschaft have a striker who is not only in form at this tournament but has a track record for goals against France.

Four goals in four games is an impressive return for any forward and having claimed the Golden Boot in 2010, Muller will be desperate to add to his tally against the French and write his name into World Cup history as the only striker to retain the award.

And after netting against Les Bleus in a friendly last year, the Ladbrokes price boost from 5/1 to 6/1 for the Bayern Munich man to score first against France looks too good to ignore.

It’s a similar situation for Colombia’s James Rodriguez, the current top scorer at the World Cup and the only man in Brazil to have netted in every game Los Cafeteros have played.

The Monaco man may be up against the Selecao, but with Brazil shipping goals in three of their four games at this World Cup, it could be wise to take advantage of another tremendous goalscorer price boost which has seen the 22-year-old move from 9/1 to 10/1 to find the net first in this game.
