Hitman Treble: CR7 our banker in Champions League acca
There may be no Gareth Bale for Real Madrid this week as they make the trip to Liverpool, but that only strengthens the case for a certain Portuguese front-man to lead the way with the goals.
And with Cristiano Ronaldo showing some blistering form for club and country of late, he is the obvious pick for Ladbrokes’ Hitman Treble tonight.
So you can now get a whopping 7/1 (from 5/1) that he find the net as well as Mario Mandzukic and Alexis Sanchez getting in on the action for their respective clubs.
Read on to find out why this enhanced treble should not be missed.
With 18 goals in his last 11 matches there isn’t much that needs to be said to convince readers that the Portuguese star could get on the scoresheet at Anfield.
The Reds have been out of sorts of late, and required the help of the QPR centre backs to bag all three points at Loftus Road at the weekend, so a visit of Los Blancos looks unwelcome.
Throw in that the Real Madrid forward has scored five goals in six games against English sides in the Champions League, and this looks pretty solid.
This could be the best time for Mandzukic and his Atletico team mates to take on Malmo, after the Swedish league leaders threw away a lead to lose to title rivals Elfsborg at the weekend.
And with confidence likely to have taken a knock, their record in the Champions League doesn’t look likely to improve, with Age Hareide’s side conceding eight goals in four matches in Europe’s premier competition.
Los Rojiblancos have been potent of late in front of their own fans totting up 11 goals in five games, so expect Diego Simeone’s front men to be on form tonight.
With a goal in both his Champions League appearances for Arsenal, the former Barcelona man has arrived at the Emirates in style.
He continued his strong start to his maiden campaign in English football with a goal in the weekend’s 2-2 draw with Hull, maintaining his position as the Gunners’ top goalscorer this season.
And with Anderlecht conceding 26 goals in their last 10 Champions League matches, the Chilean hit-man is sure to get plenty of chances to bag a goal.
