Price Boost: Rooney and Aguero enhanced for Manchester derby

| 12.04.2015

This weekend sees the return of the Manchester derby and with United surprisingly coming into the game from a position of power and City needing to arrest a poor run of form it promises to be another cracker.

Just to make sure that the game has something extra to offer though, Ladbrokes has announced not one but two top notch Price Boosts for the crunch clash.

In form United striker Wayne Rooney sees his odds on opening the scoring enhanced from 5/1 to a whopping 7/1 and City’s Argentine ace Sergio Aguero is given the same treatment.

Read on to see why these fantastic boosts are not to be missed.

Sergio Aguero to score first – was 5/1 NOW 7/1

The Citizens’ most potent goal threat has delivered 23 goals from just 37 games for club and country this term and has a telling knack for firing early in games.

Of his 23 strikes some nine have opened the scoring and with four goals in his last four meetings with United he has been a thorn in the Red Devils’ side of late.

However, having gone six games without a goal the City man will need to up his game if he is to outdo his United rival…

Wayne Rooney to score first – was 5/1 NOW 7/1

Despite being deployed as far back as holding midfield on occasion this term Rooney has smashed 21 goals in 39 games and is relishing his recent return to his favoured role as the central striker.

The United captain has hit seven goals in his last 11 outings and has opened the scoring on seven occasions so far this term.

With 11 goals from his 22 meetings with the Citizens as a United player no one has scored more Manchester derby goals than Wazza!
