Hitman Treble: Messi magic could lead the way for big weekend

| 20.12.2014

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Lionel Messi and Robin van Persie – three of the most feared strikers in world football. And now the subject of Ladbrokes latest price boost.

The trio have all confirmed that there are few better than them this season with some awesome displays.

Now they could present punters with an early Christmas present with the silky skills.

The price on the trio all to find the net has been boosted from 5/2 to a very 7/2!

As if you needed any more convincing, here’s why this bet is one to be on.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score against Montpellier @ 13/20

Ibra is a man in form at the moment. He’s now scored five in his last five and 12 from 13 appearances for PSG this season in all competitions.

He found the net when Les Parisiens put four past Montpellier when they last met.

The big Swede looks a shoo in to trouble the visiting La Paillade defence.

Lionel Messi to score against Cordoba @ 1/4

When it comes to form, Messi takes the biscuit. The Argentine has put the ball in the back of the net 21 times in 23 matches for Barca this season, and looks likely to be racking up another big total this campaign.

He’s even managed to deliver three hat-tricks in his last six matches so is in frighteningly good spirits.

Throw in that he scored both goals in Barcelona’s 2-0 victory over Cordoba last season and it is hard to image him not scoring.

Robin van Persie to score against Aston Villa @ Evens

The Dutch striker has been an integral part of a Manchester United side that has certainly improved after their up and down start to the season, with Louis van Gaal’s men on a six match winning run.

Van Persie has now scored four in his last four and looks a likely candidate get on the scoresheet again at Old Trafford.

United have a stranglehold on Villa in recent years, netting 17 times in the last five meetings and interesting RVP bagged a hat-trick on his last outing against the Villans.
